  1. Any updates to Express Dictate for Mac planned in the near future? I have submitted bug reports, but there have not been an updates for many many months... Please confirm Express Dictate is still in active development, and estimate when the next release will be available. Thank you, Brian
  2. The September 2012 update did not address the bug reports I have filed. Any idea when the next update will be made available? NCH - Please respond.
  3. Has there been any testing of Express Dictate and Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion? Also, any plans to code sign the installer (for compatibility with GateKeeper)?? Thank you, Brian Paquin
  4. No responses, so I thought I'd ask again... Any Express Dictate for Mac updates??? I saw the Windows version has been updated, but not the Mac version.
  5. I have entered a few bug reports, but there have been no updates to Express Dictate for Mac since January 2012. Is the product still actively being developed? If so, could you provide an expected release date? issues with Express Dictate: - error indicates file exists when it does not. Clearing "send" folder resolves error. - can't create new dictation (using hot key) until a dictation has been completely sent - if Dictate is not frontmost app, and hot key to create new is pressed, Dictate does NOT move to front - Hesitation before recording starts - Custom dictation data not persistent
  6. MAC User, Dictate and Scribe are both fairly Mac friendly apps. The next version will be Universal. It will also save preferences per user (not one for all users). While I don't care for the "DCT" file format (can't read natively on Mac), it works as long as you use Dictate and Scribe. There are more friendly options (like WAV), but they don't use the XML tags and we would hate to loose them! Technical support has been, well, interesting... We are in Connecticut; they are in Australia. We paid for phone support. I have called over a dozen times to tech support and NEVER received a huma
  7. MAC User, Can you provide a little more info on how you plan to deploy Dictate and Scribe? We have about 40 dictation stations and 10 transcription stations... About 200 dictations daily... There are a number of pros and cons, but most are relative to the way you configure the applications. For example, we are have issues trying to replicate the foot pedal on the keyboard (if the pedal dies, users have an alternative input source). We are trying to use F16-F19, but mapping those keys produces strange results! We have asked NCH to purchase an Apple keyboard to do testing... Brian
  8. My name is Brian and I work at Yale. We have had some integration issues and the people at NCH have been very responsive. What started as a request for fixes has turned into something more... We have received weekly updates (and betas of Dictate and Scribe) so we can follow the NCH development process. While I can't speak about what is new or changed, I can tell you about our setup at Yale and some of the issues we have faced. We are in a clinical setting and have Faculty and Residents dictating cases (about 40 stations; 200 dictations daily). All computers are Mac based. Most are intel-Ma
