Hi again Carolyn,

This is for in the morning if you see this, I visited the Ahdi website
and noticed a few courses to take, and as a beginner, Ithought 3 were
ve necessary to become a transcriptionist. could you tell me if any
specific one should be tak first from your experience? I'm also
planning on calling them for more advice. I'm thankful you posted this
info cause knew I could take a course there to get certified in this
field. Thanks!

For medical transcription, get the number from Directory Assistance of
American Association for Medical Transcription. Ask them for direction
toward getting certification. If you have had some courses or experience,
you might be ready for the examination, so they should be able to tell
to do to arrange the examination and a proctor. They have study modules.
least, that used to be the case. I have been out of the field for 18
but others on this list may be able to give better guidance toward
certification. I was certified for about 20 years. Once certified, it is
necessary to take continuing education to maintain certification, and you
probably would find that interesting and helpful to you with the work.

Bye for now,

Hey, sorry for taking long to get back, I almost forgot to respond, but
more I can share about working at home with companies, you can reach me
skype at jonelle_nicole but also if anyone can help me learn how to get
started on medical transcription like where to get certified and maybe
companies to apply to, that would be helpful.
I know some, and I have some knowledge in transcription itself, but need
more info especially on medical. thanks.

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 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.

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
time, bookmarking them, and familiarizing yourself with them can be
a great timesaver.

You will need a hedset that allows you to hear JAWS in one ear, and

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.
