Company Board Today's Top Viewed: IRS form SS-8 - related to IC.. (Views: 74)

VBC = about 80% of character count with spaces, so about 3.6 cpl, yep. - They should not be allowed to post here then.

Posted: Apr 11th, 2019 - 1:37 am In Reply to: OneVoiceData - realize their 4.5 VBC means...sm - Just me

So, technically, that doesn't meet the minimum 4 cpl requirement for the Job Seeker's board.  I wish MT Stars would take the VBC counting farce into account for job ads.


What is the average # of VBCs in a 65-character line with spaces? - If it varies, anyone know the range?  Posted: Mar 06, 2013

52 visible black characters (VBCS) - sm



For example, a 100-line document for which the medical transcriptionist is paid 8 cents per line results in a total price of $8. To make the conversion from a 65-character line (what many services have billed on and paid for) to essentially a 65-character line without spaces, divide the total number of characters in a document with spaces by 65 and multiply by 52.2; the total is the number of black characters. Then divide $8 by the number of characters (80.38) for the per character rate of .099.

Sample Document
6,500 characters with spaces
5,222 with no spaces
100 ÷ 65 X 52.2 = 80.307 characters
$8 ÷ 80.307 characters = .099 cents per character
