Experiences setting up DialDictate with EasyTapi

Recommended Posts

Just finished doing some proper setup and testing of DialDictate with an EasyTapi board supplied from NCH.


The board was ordered Wednesday together with footpedals/headsets and arrived the following Monday in the UK!


Firstly a neverending trap for me was to control the server remotely usign RDP. Most clients are set up to bring the audio across fromt he server .. this means that an extra wave device suddenly appears on the server and everything gets confused, the most common symptom was that DD would answer but immediately hang up.


The second issue is that DD works as a service but it starts up for the user when logging into the server over a remote desktop connection. THis means that two instances of the program are running - one service and one for the user. Again this causes problems. I know that you can set the program to open only for certain user but that does not really solve the problem since I always want to reconfigure DD ..


I am going to have a play with running DD under Firedaemon.


So far so good I am hoping to get an ftp program which logs activity to an ODBC database so that we can get web based tracking and possibly some integration with our Case Management Software.


Thanks for a great product.

We have abandoned ftp usage because it is too much hassle to set up and there do not appear to be any benefits over just file sharing. We are running DialDictate under FireDaemon and it works OK, if anyone wants the settings please relpy to this post and I will get back to you. (remember to set DialDictate to NOT run as a service!)


It really does not like terminal services - it runs fine as a console app but it all goes wrong with the lines if we try to RDP over to the server and use DD with or without stopping the service.


Just my experiences so far.
