of transmitting these documents. Digital recorders and computers have
place of hand held recorders. In the past dictations where primarily
cassette tapes, whereas now they can be downloaded onto computers as

documents via the internet as well, therefore never having to leave the
of their home. For this reason, the MT profession has become very
those looking to work from home.
