Hi, Sheri! Well, I don't know anything about voice and I don't think (although I'm not sure) that Texas allows voice writers as officials (I need to look that up), but I guess they use them in Louisiana. Jill, of course, knows all about it -- so she can help you there - I haven't a clue about financing on that.

All I can tell you is that CCR is fantastic - it's the same thing as being in a classroom-- I am so much better at writing, although I lost a lot of speed and I just spent the last 2 weeks moving, so I'm still behind -- I wouldn't trade it. Nicky is a fantastic support and of course, financing can be had through FAFSA. BRB - sorry

Hey, Sheri! What's new? What are you up to? I saw on Jill's page you might consider voice writing -- she seems to be doing well with it -- I am sticking to machine--if you decide to go with machine, I'd recommend CCR! It's like being on ground! CRID should get a clue, but why bother when people pay so much and don't know the difference? At any rate, if you have questions about it, several of us can fill you in.

Everything else going okay? Let me know - miss seeing you in class!

Hi, Sheri!

I'm at 140 right now. I need 1 more test to pass to get into 160.

I know how money issues can cause breaks in school. I took one of those too. For years I would go to school part-time focusing on the academic portion only 'cause I had to work full-time. But since 2008, I've been back to school full-time, and I work part-time at a law office, plus doing freelance transcription assignments from anyone who needs me. I'm almost done with ALL my academics. I currently only need 1 more to pass, which is Transcript Prep. Other than that class, I'm just working on my speed. It's hard to be disciplined, but I really gotta get on my machine EVERY DAY!!!

How about you? What school do you go to? How far along are you, speed-wise and academic-wise?

Hope you had a great birthday!

Talk to you soon,

Hi, Sheri!

I love your "About Me." I can relate 'cause I'm a CR student too and have my fair share of crying fits FOR SURE! Hahaha! I have bags under my eyes too, but we CR students keep pressing on 'cause we know... IT WILL ALL BE WORTH IT!!! :)

Keep it up! You're not in this alone!

Wow, Shari! Thank you so very much for taking the time to send that info! I will look more into it and now know how : ) Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Hope you have a very blessed day!

Hi, Shari. I saw your post in Transcriptionists Group. I am also a student and wanting to get into Medical Transcribing but don't know where to start. When I think I'm on the right track, it ends up being a dead in. Do you use your machine while working? I have heard that it is possible but no one seems to know how and/or where to get started.

Any advice you have would be appreciated more than you could possibly know : ) Thank you!

Happy New Year, Sheri - hope you hit 100 the first week! Jeannie

Wow, Sheri! Well, I wish you the best in your new school. I'm still in 80/100 and have to hit 100 or I will be in the same boat. I think it will be okay, though.

Let me know all about that voice writing - I've wondered about it, but it's not accepted in New Mexico, at all.

Happy New year and don't be a stranger!

Hey, Sheri - how were your holidays! How did you quarter go? What speed will you go into - do I sound like I'm interrogating? LOL! Sorry - I was just so lame about getting online and replying to things. Did your aid work out?

I'm still struggling too, if it's any consolation. I'm still in 80/100 speed and trying - I just need to get on it - I've been too lax with myself.

Let me know how you are doing!

Thank you so much for your reply to my discussion about MT and my mom! I really appreciated it! I have tried to get her to go into CR, but I still have a younger brother at home and a sick grandmother, so right now she doesn't have the time to go to school.

I also wanted to tell you that your feelings about CR school is normal. We all have a VERY hard time with it. If you ever need anything, feel free to let me know!

Hey, Sheri! I'm in 80/100 with Ms. Scoggins! We have 30 in that class! Brittany Imler is in your class - I am going to miss ya'll! I don't have an academic this semester - asked for that - I am really intense on getting out of 80/100 and just wanted to focus on that!

How is the first week going for you? I have a lot more done than I thought, so that's good! I'll be online for a while! Good to hear from you! Good luck with your tests this week and be sure to take them!

Hi, Sheri! How goes it?! Sorry I just hibernated last quarter! How's steno going for you? Are we in class together? I just answer the posts and haven't even looked at the roster in a proper way! You know, I had to laugh when I read your "about me" - I haven't cried so much either - and I started out as a medical transcriptionist about a million and one years ago (IBM Selectric with a correction tape - and grateful to have it) -- I don't recall it being so hard! LOL!

Holler back and I promise not to be such a stranger! Good luck with the semester!

Hi, Sheri! Just wanted to say hello! I'm sure you're playing catch up like the rest of us!

I can't wait to get into speed - at this point, I need to just do it! Reading, playing around, lessons, etc. aren't cutting it - time to wade in!

Hi, Sheri! How are you? How are your last few weeks going? I'm really knuckling down on the speedbuilding -- I can really relate to the lack of sleep -- for once my insomnia is working FOR me! I'm online for a while - shout back!

Sorry I haven't been around! You could have called me anytime...I started helping out a bit at my husband's office and got a bit overwhelmed between that and finishing up theory. How's it going for you?
At 17:06 on April 10, 2008, Sue @ The Brief Zone said…
Hi Sheri, Congratulations finishing Theory ! You should be very proud of your accomplishment!! What school did you attend? Just to give you a little background about me....I created The Brief Zone out of my own frustrations as a student years ago with the VERY BORING practice material I had to choose from. I 've been a freelance court reporter since I graduated court reporting school in '98, and now I teach court reporting, also. I'm sorry to hear you're having a little bit of trouble financing for school...been there myself. While the programs on my site will definitely help you achieve your speed and accuracy goals while increasing your memory and concentration, they're an additional tool meant to be included as part of your formal school program. The best advice I can give you would be to talk to your school about your situation--they may surprise you with a plan that could fit your needs or they may be able to refer you to one or more financing possibilities you may not have thought of. If you've done that, and you still can't swing it, maybe you could check out some of the courses offerred online where you could save $. Also, since you've achieved 80 wpm, maybe you could combine your knowledge of transcription and the skills you've learned on the steno machine to make extra money on your own by putting an ad in the paper for transcription work. The medical terms may be out of your reach, but you could still type more efficiently on the steno machine rather than on a typewriter. You might also want to look into a scoping school....I'm not familiar with what they charge, but it might be worth looking into, and there are a lot of people on this site who I'm sure would point you in the right direction and answer any questions you might have. Although I would love to see you graduate @225wpm, we all know how life gets in the way try focusing on your achievements this far and see where it can take you....Don't give up the search ! Hope this helps....Sue.
