  1. I am needing to transfer some partially completed dictation files from one computer to another and require that the bookmarks that have been set in those dictation files also be transferred. The help files on the website seem to indicate that the DCT file format cannot currently support the transfer of bookmarks, but I am hoping this information is out of date. Is there a way to do this currently?
  2. I have just placed the following upgrade suggestion in for Scribe and I was wondering what other Scribe users thought of it. Maybe it's not even a problem for anyone else? ----------------- Most transcriptionists are required to place timecodes in their transcriptions every so often (every 5 or 10 minutes in most cases). The problem is, you often get so engrossed in the transcription that you miss your time intervals and have to stop and go back to place the timecode. What would be very handy would be for Scribe to have an adjustable alert setting such that every time a user-adjustable time increment went by, Scribe would alert you that a timecode needs to be dropped in. Perhaps by having the icon in the taskbar flash or a popup bubble or something? -----------------
  3. Actually, this can be made to only one keystroke combination if you are an AutoHotKey user. AutoHotkey allows you to set up macros that combine two or more keystrokes into one script file which is really easy to write. See http://www.autohotkey.com/ for details on this handy little app. Anyhow, here is the script I use to make the Ctrl+Esc key combo fetch *and* paste the timecode into any document I am working in (unlike a Word macro, this script is not limited to Word but can work in any app): --------------------------------- ^Esc:: ; Get the time from Express Scribe and paste it to the cursor Send ^+t Sleep 500 ; Allow the fetch process a moment to work before pasting into document Send ^v return --------------------------------- In this script, I have the time fetch hotkey in Scribe set up to be Ctrl+Shift+t, but you can change it to whatever you want.
