Text Expanders -- Verbatim Additions

Verbatim is not something that most of us enjoy. In fact, it's probably something most of the transcriptionists I know run and hide from. Adding common verbatim sounds to your text expander program can help, especially for those speakers that go a little overboard on the verbal ticks. These are only some of the possibilities I've added that have made several a verbatim file a little less annoying.
