A community of 30,000 US Transcriptionist serving Medical Transcription Industry
I have been an MT for decades, using Word Perfect, then Bayscribe, and now another platform. I never worked in Word. I was in the dark about a lot of things, being at my previous job for over 10 years, perfectly content, not realizing the chaos that was going on in this industry. After being sold about 2 years ago, I had to learn a new platform, learn VR, and finally after a few years, understand how to use this particular platform. Please bear with me as I ask a few questions. I am going to have to use ExpressScribe to test for some jobs, and I don't understand how it works. I know it plays .wav files and other kinds of files. Is there something you could compare it to with what I do know? Is it similar to Bayscribe? Do you just download it and then transcribe in it like Bayscribe? How do the files get to it in order to transcribe? I just don't grasp it. I have been to the website and I am still confused. I would appreciate any help trying to understand how this works. I feel so incompetent as I feel these are things I should know in order to continue in this business. I never had to be "computer literate" with my previous jobs and I just feel overwhelmed. Thanks for any help.
