I already work for Dict8, a medical transcription company and seem to get plenty of work from them. I am now considering giving up my employed job so that I can work from home. I think I should probably apply to some other companies so that I have enough work, does anyone have experience of working for OutSec or Accuro, particularly doing medical transcription?

Hi Pae116b - I have been working for Dict8 for some time now from home but recently their proof reading feedback has been a little odd and I know other people have been upset about it, you struggle with their dictators and do your best and they find some fault it seems just for the sake of it and I am suspicious that it is due to the rise in the minimum wage and they are trying to fend off people asking for a pay rise on the grounds that work is not perfect. So I have been looking around at other companies such as Dictate it and Accuro. However, I am unsure about the policies of matching you with one person - what if it turns out to be someone you have trouble understanding and also particularly with Accuro the need to give a week in advance your availability for work and having to complete everything you are set (just like being back at school) as this does not take into account illness, accidents and other problems like power cuts or loss of internet connection. I do like the way with Dict8 we can pick and choose what and when we type, as long as the work is there, so I just wondered if you did sign up with anyone else how you have found it? Thanks.

Have you thought about advertising as a Virtual Assistant?

I use one, she types up my inventories, and I have found her to be a godsend. I wouldn't do the job without her, or AN Other should she ever leave me - that sounds odd, as I have never met her smile

In the network meetings I go to there are always a couple of VAs and they are always as busy as they want to be. They have an amazingly wide range of clients and all seem to settle into a specialist area that they enjoy.
