Are you sure you're using Auto Text and not Auto Correct?
Auto Text accompanies the template, as I stated before. The Auto Correct entries are in a separate file with the .acl extension.
Transferring Auto Correct/Auto Text

I work in Word currently and have a large number of AC/AT entries.  I am moving to a platform that has Instant Text or Shorthand.  Is it possible to transfer these entries as a file somehow, or am I going to have to enter by hand?  Also any comments welcome regarding the ease of use, etc of Instant Text versus Shorthand.



Just type the heading and bold it and then go to autocorrect and add it.
auto text, auto text auto text - I also have ...
a couple of doctor accounts that pay me "off the books" and it's less than $800/month so that helps out a great deal.

I autotext every report until I build each doctor up to a "normal" text format. if you want more info - email me at dcr468@aol.com. I am always hesitant about writing the name of companies on this board because of the serious bashing that goes on.
You could add it to your auto correct
uuu for date spelled out.
put it in your auto correct if your (sm)
program allows; the way you spell it incorrectly to the left and to the right the correct spelling and when you type it its corrected for you. Have done that several of my words I have the same problem with.
Auto Cap Options in IT

You can disable the Automatic Capitalization in IT by right-clicking on the phrases advisory, then go to Options and Automatic Capitalization. There you can enable/disable the feature and indicate whether or not you want it to capitalize after colons.

Another place to check is in AutoCorrect in Word- that may be automatically capitalizing things as well.

Why don't you just use Auto Correct
in Word? it's very similar to PRD and you can assign it to open on an F-key...
Unfortunately that is the bad part of auto

text and why companies encourage you to use it.  The shortcuts and templates you build don't last due to numerous reasons like rebooting the server, etc.  When companies hire you they make it sound like your lines will increase in no time once you build the shortcuts, but they fail to tell you that rebuilding them is also included!  Another reason why I'm so sick this profession and looking to get out.

auto text.


How do you add in auto correct?

2007 is really different than 2003.  I can't seem to find how I do this.  Thanks.

You can auto cap in autocorrect sm
I leave autocorrect enabled since I don't the ESP program. I use Instant Text and autocorrect togeter with ET and haven't had any problems. Under the show autocorrect options, just check mark capitalize first word in the sentences. I actually checked them all.
auto correct

How do you bold in auto correct?  Example: SOCIAL HISTORY: 

Any help is appreciated greatly.

If you go under settings, and then playback settings, There is an autobackup setting ..It goes in milliseconds, and I currently have mine set at 1000, which seems to be a comfortable place, and backs it up just enough to catch the last word or so that i may have missed.
auto correct
I lost my auto correct. It asked me if I wanted to replace my normal template and like a dummy, I hit yes. Now, I do not have any of my doctor normals, but it has the shorter auto corrections for the patient, however, aspirin, etc., but not any of the longer ones that I use for doctor's normals. Does anyone know how to restore this?
Auto format

You should be able to restore by formatting your commands.  Just go in and find auto commands and click the one that over turned that.

Good luck!


Auto format
Which version are you using?
Auto accident - rear -end
we don't think we should give a "recorded" statement to the other car's insurance company.  Advice.
Auto test entries
Does anybody know how to "save" one's own private auto text entries (within Microsoft Word) and also how to later print-out this file?  Thanks in advance! 
   Sorry, I asked about auto "test"......I ment auto TEXT
Auto Text entries

The file should be located here:

c:documents and settings<your name>application datamicrosoft emplates

There are a couple of other "critical" files that you should also back up. One is CUSTOM.DIC - (this is your dictionary)
c:documents and settings<your name>application datamicrosoftproof

and the other is MSO1033.acl (AutoCorrect entries)
c:documents and settings<your name>application datamicrosoftoffice

Auto Text thanx for helping :)

Auto Correct question

I have a question.  Is there a way to print the entries in auto correct??  Also, is there a way to save all my entries in auto correct and auto text to a CD???  Any help would be greatly appreciated. 


Yes there is a way to print your auto correct
There is a free download for a macro program that backs up your auto correct file. You can print it..save it..and restore your autocorrect file with it. I love it. I have 3 computers and I use this to keep all of them up to date with my auto correct entries.

I dont think I can post a link here on this board. If you email me at Loveyaheart@aol.com I will be glad to give you the link for the download.
Auto Correct BackUp

In Word, there are two files that you must backup for AutoCorrect ~ Normal and acl file.    I need to know what the file name is for the 'acl' file..  

Thanks, mroper

C-phone auto backspace - How to?

Does anyone know how to set/adjust auto backspace on a Dictaphone C-phone?


C-phone auto backspace
When I used the C-phone, I would press 9 to increase auto backspace and 8 to decrease it.

MS Word Auto Numbering
If by indenting, you mean making a list and having it indented toward the right, you need to turn on the autonumbering options in Word.  Do this by opening Word, go to tools, autocorrect.  Click on the tab autoformat as you type.  Check ON automatic numbered lists.  Now click on the tab Autoformat and check ON lists, say OK at the bottom.  Close Word and open it again.  When you type 1. and then some text and hit enter aftward, it should now set up your list for you.  Make sure that if you are transcribing, the account allows autonumbering, most don't.  Hope this helps!
Auto Correct in Word

I use auto correct in Word to make my macros.  Is there any way to save this info in the event that my computer were to crash.  This has happened before and I've had to enter all of my macros again on a new computer (quite a hassle).  I appreciate any info.



auto correct vs. shorthand
i don't see the difference, care to explain?
How can I get it to auto load the next file? sm

I'm also new to ES and can't figure out how to get it to auto load the next job file when I click "done" with the current file.  I have all my voice files in a folder and it loads them all, but sure would like to not have to manually load each new one.  Can anyone help?  TIA!

Inscribe/auto Text
I would like to print out my expansions in Auto Text, Inscribe. I am needing to make changes and clean it up and for me it would be easier to make the changes on paper and then go and do the changes.
Any ideas?
auto text has shut off
i was deleting some entries in my auto text and now when i am typing, they aren't coming on...i must have shut them off and i can't figure out to turn it on again.
If you are using Word use auto-correct to

get you started. - make tp the patient, etc. 

Start with just a few additions - the ones that you use most often.  Add 5 or 10 a week.  Make you a sticky note and stick on the monitor if you need help remembering.  Use those 5 to 10 for a week and then add a few more the next week. 

As someone else stated I would get an expander.  Auto correct does the same thing as an Expander but has limited space, so if you utilize a lot of auto-corrects/expansions you'll run out of room and have to switch over to an expander anyway. 

moving auto correct

Does anyone know how to move the auto correct entries that you have on one computer and putting them on another computer also.  I have my home computer that I have my side Doc that I do and I will be working for a hospital and want to also have them on this computer.  I tried some directions that I got off microsoft.com with just putting a floppy in clicking files/folders, local hard drive and put in file name to search- normal. dot but nothing came up.  Is there another way, as I would hate to type these all over again?




auto correct capitalizing after cm

I'm typing in WORD and copy/pasting into Meditech; however, it is not capitalizing the first letter if it comes after cm. or mm.  I have everything checked in options and it works the rest of the time.  Any suggestions on this, or anything else re: typing this way for Meditech (radiology).

TIA Min in Ga

Help with ExText auto correct

I just started using ExText's autocorrect in addition to my ESP and if I'm careful they're not incompatible.  I don't think that is the problem. 

The problem is that somewhere in AutoCorrect several words have been entered to have a period after an abbreviation, like if I type "recs" for recommendations, what it gives me is "recs."  The "recs" for recommendations is in my ESP.  I want to find the "recs." and get rid of it but I canot find it in the AutoCorrect to delete it.  There are a few others like that (I type "croww" for CROW walker, but it gives me "crow."  So now I've had to change my abbreviation to crowwk.  See what I mean?  I just hate to have to make up new abbreviations and remind myself to use them if I could just delete the ones that are embedded in there.  Can anybody help?


MS Word Auto Text

I had inputed a bunch of my own "text expantion" into MS Word Auto Text and went in to work today and they are all gone.  It is not the first time this has happened, and then you have to go and input back everything, which is a pain.

Has anyone else experienced this or know why it happens??

auto correct and format

I have 2003 on one computer and 2007 on the other, but it could not be much different, okay, go into your auto format or correction, in spelling and grammar, go to options, , advanced, there should be a auto correct button in there, that will take you to what you need to change.  What happened is when you clicked yes, it unchecked something that was checked when you were working with it before, just go down the list and look for what you need. 

I really and truly hope this helps, if not, go to the Microsoft website, there should be a help option on your header, then just type in what you are needing help with and it should guide you through it.

Backing up Auto Correct
Can someone tell me how to back up AutoCorrect in Word? I just purchased a flash drive and would like to put my entries on it. Thanks in advance!
Backing up Auto Correct
The file name for mine is MSO1033.acl. Just do a file search on your computer for *.acl and save it to disk or flash drive.
Software to auto-print files

"Isn't there some way to have the files print when I get them?"

Many offices voice this wish, and Emmaus is pleased to announce an affordable solution ($49).

When the office receives transcription (via email, ftp download, or PC Anywhere), they put those files into the folder they've told MPMonitor and Print to watch. These files can be Word documents or password protected zip files. MPMonitor and Print will unzip if necessary and print using the user's copy of MS Word.

Best wishes,
Vann Joe Turner

as far as I know, main problem with auto-correct
than Shortcuts/Shorthand, for example.  So would depend on your number of expansions and how many more you're planning to put in, I would say.  I don't know what the maximum limits are, but you can probably find that info on Google or here:
Under preferences, auto display, and make sure
there is no check mark in front of the option to use Shift plus enter to expand.
Word expanders vs Auto text

What is the difference between Word Expanders and Auto text?  Are they the same thing? 


Word expanders vs Auto text
Thank you!
expanders vs MS Word Auto Correct

Hello everyone ....  I've been using MS Word's auto correct feature as my expander.  Is it 'just as good' as using an Expander ?   Of course my line count is lousy per hour - but I don't do the same account regularly, and I don't get many ops (standard formats).  

Please tell me if / why I should change to an expander - and which one works best.  Remember PRD for DOS - I loved it.  Is there a Windows version?

Thanks, Susie


Auto correct in Word and a TON of macros....

Yes, tools and then auto correct options.
There are lots of tabs in there for different automatic options - you can undo them by removing the check marks. Just go thru all the different options you don't want and click on the box to remove the check marks. If you remove all check marks on most auto options, it allows you to basically straight type! Good luck!
Tks so much. What is auto text/where do I find it? This sounds so
