Hey, Leslie. I'm a reporter in Houston and am looking for a scopist. I saw you posted on a scopist's page about doing some work for you and was wondering if you could tell me if she did a good job. I don't want to put her name here, so if you have a chance, please e-mail and I'll give it to you. My e-mail address is email@example.com. Thanks!
Yes, I am a convert. I simply cannot write on my Stentura anymore without feeling as if I am writing in concrete. I've had no issues with hand/arm pain, but right now I am a part-timer so not writing that many pages anyway. Have you spoken with Jenny Griffin? She was using the LS for a while and felt it was having a negative impact on her thumbs.
Greta Duckett has different config files uploaded to a website for experimenting. I can send you mine if you'd like. It's taken me a while, been on the LS 18 months now, but my translation is very good now. Don't mean to scare you that it took 18 months to get there, but each update of the software brings more improvement.
Here's the link to Greta's blog http://myredlightspeed.blogspot.com/
You can find the config files there. My current one is not uploaded, so email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send it along. Did you read the LS section on depoman? It's a goldmine of information.
Hi Leslie....thanks for contacting me. I don't think I can help with your dailies, but I am definitely up for helping you with any overflow. Please e-mail me if you're interested in talking more and wanting to know rates, turnarounds, etc. Good luck w/ your arbs!
Thank you for your inquiry. I definitely am interested in taking overflow work at any time. I would like to increase my workload. Are you requesting the daily arbs to be scoped with full audio or spot checking only? Spot audio is my preference, especially when scoping dailies, especially if the content is very dense or technical or overall a lot of pages. Also, I have experienced in the past occasions that in listening to word-for-word audio, the scoping turned into more complete transcribing, filling in full dropped sentences. Way too time consuming. I look forward to your reply. Thanks again,
Thanks for contacting me. You sound like a busy reporter. I'm pretty busy right now myself. It's hard to say how busy I'll be in May, so I couldn't give you an answer at this time. If I do have any down time, I'll let you know if I can help you out.
and Just a heads up. if you look at the top of your page to the left, you will see a person icon and a mail icon, click on the little guy and add me to your friends list (assuming you would want to, lol).
also, you can send private messages if ever need be.
if you have any questions please let me know
