If you get the scissors type, they can be taped together. When I worked, I had three of them taped together - one for Vocal Eyes; one for the main dictation machine and one for cassettes. It worked with no problem.

Bye for now,

I have moderate to severe, or is it the other way around hearing loss, so I have to do everything from the left ear.

Rather uncomfortable to put the phone and headset to one ear lol.

I do that all the time, when I call the bank or credit card company, earbud in right ear for computer, earbud in left for phone.

Bye for now,

I have improvised with a headset for one source and earbuds for the other when doing medical transcription from home with one side of the headset covering one ear and one earbud in the other. A refreshable braille display/notetaker was very helpful, too. The companies I've worked for provided the transcription-specific equipment (hardware and software). Many medical references are available online. Searching them out ahead of time, bookmarking them, and familiarizing yourself with them can be a great timesaver.

Plantronics used to make such a device years ago. You will need this
regardless of whether you work from home, or out of the home.

Hi list members,



I'm currently searching for a customer service, medical transcription,
or other home based position but am not sure what extra equipment I
might need to do these types of jobs from home. Do I need special
software, special headset and/or ear bud, etc.? I use Windows 7 and
Jaws 15.



Could somebody please share their current or past experience with home
based employment? Any help would be greatly appreciated.



Laura
