This information must be transcribed accurately, using the format specified by the provider (SOAP notes, discharge summaries, and other report forms) Basic computer knowledge is a must, as are basic typing skills and knowledge of commonly used word processing programs.

Most doctors or transcription companies ask for a minimum of 80 WPM, computer, and English grammar skills are essential. Also, many companies now use the Internet, which gives you the opportunity to work out of your home without having to drop off and pick up tapes. Our program now offers you the opportunity to learn how to use the internet and transcribe files through voice files, using FTP and Byte scribe/Express Scribe and foot pedals that connect to your computer.
