Does anyone have suggestions to make proofreading faster, easier? Unlike transcribing, starring at the screen proofing really bothers me, almost drives my blood pressure up I think. I wish it was easier.

WTranx, if you could make this a new post more people would see it and respond, then we could end up with some great tips in that new thread and then link to it from here.

Here's a note on how to MODIFY OR EDIT MSWord's DICTIONARY
-
Contributed by creatshuns.

In response toJupiter's
question on editing the dictionary in MS Word, go to Tools, Options,
and click the Spelling and Grammer tab. Click Custom Dictionaries,
then the Modify tab on the right. </font>

FROM CERENE - A WORD TIDBIT

</font> I was just hunting around for a
concise explanation of exactly how to get em and en dashes done with
keystrokes in my version of Word (2000) because the help function is
once again typically useless. I came across this very succinct
explanation that covers several versions of Word and has a couple of
shortcuts I didnt know about, so I thought I'd share it.[img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

<blockquote>Typographers use different dashes for different purposes. The only
difference between the dashes is their width. For instance, you get one
type of dash when you press on the minus key-it is a dash that is very
narrow. A longer dash is called an en dash, because it is the same
width as a lowercase n. An en-dash is typically used to denote ranges
of numbers. Wider still is the em-dash, which is just as wide as a
lowercase m. The em-dash is typically used in sentences, as a dash
between clauses. To insert an en-dash in your document, hold down the Alt key and type 0150 on the numeric keypad; an em-dash is produced by holding down the Alt key and typing 0151.

Another way to insert the dashes is to use the minus key on the numeric keypad. If you press Ctrl+- (remember, on the numeric keypad) then Word inserts an en-dash. The wider em-dash is inserted by using Ctrl+Alt+-.</blockquote>
From here.</font>

From George</font>

Just enlarge a little on CERENE's discussion on dashes using Alt 169 ® you get the registered trademark which should be used when discussing the above mentioned products Microsoft®.

There are a couple of others that may be of interest Alt 11 ♂ and Alt 12 ♀ which are just mentioned in the passing. Though many of the alternative characters can be displayed by pressing the Alt + any number in the range 1 to 256. Some of the numbers will display the normal keys on the keyboard and another that may be useful is Alt 156 £, hope someone finds this information useful.

So I have been researching work at home opportunties and jobs for the past 2 months now and to my failure, have not found anything that I feel is worth doing besides maybe medical transcription. I know nothing about medical transcription and would like to learn more. I know that it is the process of typing words doctors say. I also have heard of CareerStep. I heard Career Step is a great course that is affordable that provides thorough training and job placement. I am now 26 weeks pregnant and searching for something I can do 4-5 hours a day from home. I have no money to put down on a training course. I owe over $4-$5K in student loans already from going to school to get my degree in teaching. I still have to take my Praxis test to get certified before I become a teacher but I currently cannot afford to take the test as it is a few hundred dollars. I need something fast. Do you think this would be an opportunity for me?
