Configure incoming recording sources to simplify and automate the process of checking for and loading new dictations. Set up a new incoming source by clicking the Add button. See the Options ~ Incoming ~ Incoming Source Properties section for more information on configuring recording sources.
An existing incoming source may have its details modified by clicking the Properties button to open its Incoming Source Properties dialog, and then changing the required settings. See the Options ~ Incoming ~ Incoming Source Properties section for more information on configuring recording sources.
To delete an incoming source from the list, highlight it in the Incoming Recordings list and then click the Remove button.
When a new dictation arrives:
Perform special process:
These audio processes can be used to improve the quality of the received audio and make it easier to understand the speaker. Available processes include "Background Noise Reduction", "Extra Volume Boost", and "High Pass Filter".
Play a sound:
If you tick this option and browse to locate a WAV file, that file will be played whenever a new file arrives to let you know you have a new dictation. Useful sounds files can usually be found in the C:\Windows\Media folder.
Display a bubble tip:
You can set whether you want a bubble tip to appear each time you receive a new dictation.
Note: On Linux, this option is only available if you have the libnotify library installed.
Select it (unless another dictation is playing):
When checked, the dictation that has arrived will be selected in the dictation list when it finishes loading. If another dictation is playing when the new dictation finishes loading then the selection remains unchanged.
Set User's Decryption Key
Express Dictate, Pocket Dictate, DialDictate and WebDictate can encrypt the recordings prior to transmission to protect security and privacy. If this has been done, you must enter the same key in Express Scribe to decrypt the audio.
The key is based on the user id of the sender (obtained when you register Express Dictate or DialDictate). If you have not yet registered, use the id 0.
