The MTWerks Difference

MTWerks teaches skills you won't find anywhere else!  You will learn specific tips, techniques, and ideas that will truly make a difference, even for experienced users of Word and Windows.   Not only do you learn how to work more efficiently, but you will also learn how to avoid trouble and solve problems in MS Word and Windows.  The table below lists just a few of the techniques taught along with their advantages.   Just like saving a few cents a day will add up to hundreds of dollars over a lifetime, saving a few seconds on every small task, multiplied by hundreds of tasks a day, adds up to hours by the end of the week. And for most transcriptionists, time = money.

Technique Advantage
Using keyboard commands instead of using the mouse Saves up to 6 seconds per command
Recording macros Reduces multiple-step tasks to 1-2 seconds
Creating templates (dot files) Reduces formatting tasks 90-100% while transcribing

Customizing the Windows Start Menu Opens files, programs and web sites in 2 keystrokes versus 4-5 mouse clicks
Using electronic references (electronic dictionaries, electronic word lists) Locates the definition of a term in as little as 10 seconds
Using right-click menus Reduces many editing tasks to 2 quick clicks
Changing Options Reduces overall frustration, backspacing, reformatting, editing, and retyping of text
