There’s just not one answer for this. It depends on so many things! I am an
old hand, and I do 500-700 lines per hour on one account. Another one takes me
3 hours to do 800 lines. Still another is 600 LPH. Then there’s the one I
dumped that takes me three days, is 400 lines, and takes me 8 months to get
paid for it. 🙂

There is no such thing as an average! My first job as an MT was the one
that still holds the record for the best pay, even though I was a novice.
It was radiology and I got paid by the page. It was very repetitive, and
this was even before I discovered such things as word expanders!
Some accounts are repetitive and with expansion programs you can do 2 or 3
times what another account may take. Unquestionably you do better when you
are accustomed to a dictator.
It depends on your ear, the quality of the dictation, the repetitiveness,
and somewhat your typing speed.

I’m going to be a smart a** for a moment. My doctor asked me yesterday how
many hours a day I work. My response was “when I’m awake.” He nodded
A new MT is going to have a hard time at first, but it gets better. You’re
going to have to look up so much stuff and make sure your work is of a high
quality if you intend to get better. I could, underline the could, get 500
lines done in just a few hours, but when I was new, it took me much longer
– half day to a whole day. Speed comes in time. Accuracy is much more
