I could really use the word macro you made for getting the time stamp from express scribe. If you can, please email it to me. My email address is wtorbett@hotmail.com. I was also wondering if you made any progress with the macro for playing an audiofile in express scribe when you click a time stamp in MSword. Thank you.

Hi there. Good for you for creating that macro!

 

You get TONS of Kudos from me for sure. I am also very interested and excited to get a copy of the macro you came up with. Would you please send that to me? I will use it for my transcription business as well. Any shortcuts are always appreciated and I use macros in Word all the time.

 

Thanks,

 

Roxanna

Hi. Sorry I can't help you with your original question, but could you send the MSword macro you created to me as well? It would help a lot. Thanks!

 

Send it to me on http://nch.invisionzone.com/index.php?app=members&module=messaging&section=contact&do=Mail&MID=21811

I think someone's playing with us. Why not just post the Macro instead of having people supply their e-mail addresses?

 

Sounds like a scam.

 

In any event, to insert timestamps into a Word document, in Express Scribe go to Settings, then select Pedals and Hot Keys. Click Add at the bottom of the box to create a System-wide Hot Key. A Window pops up asking you to press a key. In my version of Express Scribe F1 and F11 are free. I chose F1. Then a Select Command box pops up. Scroll down to Copy Time and select this.

 

Now, as you play the audio file in Express Scribe, all you have to do is press your Hot Key (F1 for me) at the point where you hear the word you want to time stamp, and then CTRL V to paste it in Word.

 

Bingo. Two keystrokes and you're pasting timestamps!

Please don't abuse me. Am not doing anything to harm you.

 

I don't want simply put my macro here for public download. If anybody really needs it, they have to ask me with their email id. I don't think anything is unusual in it.

I have been doing this for ages. All of a sudden, it's stopped working. Absolutely nothing happens now. I checked the hot-keys, and nothing has changed, so I don't understand why all of a sudden it doesn't work. Any ideas?

 

TIA

Thanks Binu for the macro. It is working very fine with my ES version 4.05. However, instead of adding this scribe.dot file via Templates and Add-Ins of MS Word by first lowering the security level to medium, one just needs to go and install at C:\Documents and Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP. You just need to make an execution file for that. I just simply have to press keys Ctrl+3 to get the time stamp in my MS Word 2003 or press Ctrl+4 to get the word "inaudible" before the time stamp. I just never liked the long time stamp of ES where one would have to use both the mouse and then the keyboard.

 

Now I am wishfully looking forward to your new macro for playing a dictation in ES when we click a time stamp in MS Word. I am not sure, but this may be like working back to ES. One could highlight the time stamp and copy to clipboard and let ES pick it up from there.

I have trouble with my Time Codes coming out as 0:00:00.0, and I need them to read 00:00:00.

Can you help me with this please?

I have to go back and change all the time codes in my completed transcript, and this is very time consuming.

Tell me what I need to do to get the formatting of the time codes correct, please.

 

I'm using HOTKEYS of express scribe to copy the timestamp and then paste it in word 2007 but the format is 0:00:00.0 and I want it in a format like [00:00:00]. Please help me out here.

Thank you very much for reading.

 

Waiting for reply

 

REGARDS
