transfer an http file


Recommended Posts

I have Express Scribe Pro (I believe 5.59 version) and someone sent me an audio file that has an http:// address and was done on the website Free Conference Call. I can bring the recording up but how do I transfer it to my express scribe so I can use my pedal? I've looked everywhere and either I'm totally clueless or I'm looking for the wrong thing.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

 

The http:// URL is almost certainly a link to a page that will play the recording to you. It's not a link to the file as such.

I've taken a quick look at the Free Conference Call site, and it would appear that the recording starts playing on a page with a bunch of buttons up above it. Is that right?

Among those buttons there should be one to download the recording. Or there might be a "Share" button, and when you click that, one of the options may be "Download".

Either way, the solutions is to download the file to a convenient folder on your computer and then just open it in Express Scribe Pro.

If that's not clear, post a screen shot of what you see when you follow the link, and I'll see if I can make a more precise suggestion.

 

Regards,

Steve

Thanks for the information. The screen I see when I go to the Free Conference Call page is black and has an audio symbol in the middle. The only boxes it shows are the one with the http:// address and one that says copy. When I press copy it says "link clipped to clipboard". I called and talked to someone at Free Conference Call and they said to tell the sender to download it and send it as an email. The sender said he tried that but the file was too big.

When I right click on the http address box the options are cut, copy, paste. When I right click on the screen the options are save page as, send page to device. If I right click copy I get the same options as right clicking the black screen. Hope this helps!

Hi,

On most forums, there's a button like "Attach file", but there seems to be nothing of that sort here, which is weird.

Any admin monitoring this thread ... is there a way of doing that?

Meanwhile, I suggest you ask your client to send the audio file using WeTransfer.

Regards,

Steve
