Help! I need any information out there. I am looking to work at home as a MT. I have experience doing transcription for a spine and joint clinic, but no formal training. I've been looking into several opportunities. So far, places like AMA trans am is requiring at least $360 software fee. Net Transcripts emailed me today and said I was qualified and sent me a contractor agreement. Then only thing they require is that I get a foot pedal and a fee for the training ($25-30). Has anyone tried Net Transcripts? If so, please contact me! Thanks for your help. Also, if anyone knows or is working for a legitimate company, please let me know.

I work for Medquist. I've been there for more than a year. I have to pay to rent my Dictaphone, because I don't want to buy my own, but there are no other costs. They did not charge to train. They're switching over right now to an online version - my Dictaphone is pretty much obsolete, so I'll just need a foot pedal then. If you transcribe a fairly easy minimum, they'll pay for your phone line and/or ISP. www.medquist.com. Edix is also legit, and there are several others. AMA Trans am and MedQuest are scams. I don't know about Net Transcripts.

I have done some research on Net Transcripts and the Better Business Bureau lists them as also being Documint. If anyone has heard of this company, please let me know. Thanks!

I think I applied at Documint and they ask for a fee for training to start up. As soon as I saw that, I said forget it. There are much better companies out there that don't ask for money.

Oh, and AMA Trans AM is a scam. They have been talked about all over some MT boards and have taken money and ran.
