I have arthritis in my hands and want to learn to use voice recognition software to avoid typing so much.

Just curious? I have to sit this Fall semester out and wait until spring to start at a community college and at first i was so thrilled to look into Vocational schools but then i seen many, many, and many awful reviews about Concorde, UEI, American Career, Everest, and all those other schools that promise you degree in less than a year. So i was just wondering if it is possible to get a job as a medical billing specialist with a high school diploma?
After being trained and certified, is it possible to work from home full-time as a Medical Billing/Coding Specialist? I read that I'd have to work as an office employee for 4-5 years, at least, for the same company before they would allow someone to work from home part-time or full-time. Is this true? Also, where can I find such jobs. Thanks.
