The MTP Productivity Module:  An integral transcription component:  Word expander abbreviations, AutoCorrect in MSWord, are abbreviations to help you increase your productivity/work output and thereby your earnings.  An abbreviation is typed and expands upon activation of the spacebar or an assigned hotkey.  This abbreviation can expand into a word, a phrase or a 'normal' standard dictation - whatever you program it to be!  The keystrokes saved by the Transcriptionist are a key component to your productivity and thus, your earnings.  When first installed MSWord contains only a very basic, minimal AutoCorrect list provided by Microsoft.  We will instruct you on what AutoCorrect is, how to create entries, when you should create them, and what they can do for you.  This module will provide you with approximately 9,400+/- entries (318 printed pages) of MTP AutoCorrect codes for your use during studies and in your career work afterward.  

This module gives a very detailed explanation of AutoCorrect.  Instructions provided on how to create, install, and utilize these codes to increase your productivity, and also a detailed AutoCorrect printout on flash drive of all AutoCorrect codes and the file with upload instructions.  We want you to completely understand how this utility works and become proficient in using the codes we have created, and also those codes which you will create from your specific documents.  You will exponentially increase your earnings and save your hands from typing unnecessary keystrokes, and you will ensure greater accuracy for your documents.  

Some examples of when you will use AutoCorrect:
Replace (the AutoCorrect code) (will turn into) With (expanded as it will play out).

From the Author:

For many years we thoroughly researched all of the training courses (including those currently available) and found that they were not (and still are not) providing the student with what they want nor need.  Most if not all of the other courses still teach by the outdated method of learning by medical specialty area, i.e., first learning Cardiology, then learning Orthopedics, etcetera, etcetera.  The distinct difference in our training is that we teach the student by work type rather than specialty and teach the student using clearly worded dictations so the student can both learn (and retain) at a faster pace!  We will stress this phrase (work types) repeatedly throughout your training because you really need to start thinking in "work types" rather than by medical "specialty" and MTPractice has perfected our own unique training method utilizing work type training.
The MTPractice Transcription Training Modules were conceived as an answer to this lack and to address what transcription employers are looking for: Transcriptionists who can transcribe their work - quickly and accurately, utilizing up-to-date (digital) technology.  Practice and refine your transcription skills using our clearly-spoken, realistic, interesting dictations.  Using the supplied template(s) (.dot file) and filling in the preset field variables you learn proper report formatting.  Your completed documents may be saved as .Doc or .Docx files to open in any MSWord program.
When you have completed your module(s) you will have received instruction on 'what goes where', how to transcribe that work type, and will have received hands-on experience formatting and performing the transcription of actual dictations. 
We offer seven work type training modules, a module covering the fundamentals of Medical Transcription including Spellcheck, and another on productivity with emphasis on AutoCorrect word expansions and volume transcripts, or all of the modules as a set.
The MTPractice Transcription Fundamentals will specifically provide you with instructions in the following:

  • Template loading instructions.
  • How to open, save and install templates.
  • How to create a new document using your module's templates.
  • How to install the MTPractice Custom Spellcheck Dictionary.
  • How to play voice files.
  • Foot pedal installation and configuration.
  • Downloading MTPractice dictation training voice files.
  • Modifications to MSWord.
  • Customizing the keyboard for optimum transcription.
