Developing A Rhythm

As you strengthen your dictation skills you will find yourself developing a certain rhythm of dictation. With practice, you will become more adept at organizing your thoughts, communicating information over the phone, and describing a patient's care. You will also discover which standard phrases flow smoothly on the tongue and can be delivered accurately without running out of breath.

Just as when you learned how to drive and were nervous about checking your rear-view mirror, you will find certain tasks automatically falling into place (knowing when to breathe, when to pause, how to use certain types of vocal punctuation to set apart sentences).

Practice makes perfect. As your rhythm of dictation improves, it will also become easier for transcriptionists to do your work.
