|Medical Transcriptionists use machines with headset and foot pedal to listen to recordings by healthcare professionals. These machines record dictation as a variety of medical reports, such as emergency room visits, operations, and final summaries. They transcribe dictated reports and translate medical jargon and abbreviations into their expanded forms and edit as necessary. The transcriptions are returned to the dictator for review and signature, or correction.|
