Expander Program - 10/20/15 12:58 AM

Hi Everyone!

I am currently enrolled at Mildred-Elley for Medical Transcription and I am looking for some opinions on different expander programs that MT's use.

Also, I am looking for any one who has tips on what I need for beginning lists that could help me out.

Hi Shaena,

If your plans are to work at home as an employee, usually the company will require and furnish their expander program, so I wouldn't buy one until you have secured a job. If you get work as an independent contractor, they still might furnish the expander or you might have to buy it, but they will probably have a specfic program that they would require you to use.

As far as beginning lists, I am assuming you mean terminology to remember? When I started way back when I had a notebook where each page was a letter of the alphabet and I put unfamiliar terms under the proper letter. You could do the same thing but make it a word processing document and you could use the "find" feature to quickly locate it.

Hope that helps--good luck!
