Re: Home based employment

Hi to Laura and Tina

I wanted to share that I am a Jaws 16 user who has been working from
home for several companies for over 5 years now, and am also
interested in the best rout to pursuing Medical transcription as a
long-term career. I'll be glad to exchange links and tips about
getting started with working at home. I don't mind shareing my info
and you can email me at my gmail listed above, and we can even share
Skype since that's where a lot of at home companies and agents
connect. Thanks.

I have moderate to severe, or is it the other way around hearing loss, so
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,
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).
medical references are available online. Searching them out ahead of
bookmarking them, and familiarizing yourself with them can be a great

the phone (or whatever audio source you are listening to,) in the other.
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.
