Receive Method Tab
Select this option to load dictations from an Express Delegate (v 4.00 or above) dictation workflow management server. Express Delegate is a dedicated dictation workflow management server from NCH Software.
Express Delegate Options
The Express Delegate Server can be a computer that is accessible across a LAN (local area network) or the Internet. The Express Delegate administrator will need to create an account before you can logon to the server. Please consult the Express Delegate help for more information on installing Express Delegate, configuring the server, and creating user accounts.
You'll need to know the Server and Logon details for the Express Delegate server you are connecting to:
Click to attempt a connection to the server using the current server and logon details. If the connection is successful then details of the server will also be shown.
Select this option to load dictations from an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) server. Note that you must have your own directory on this server. You do not need to host your own server - almost all ISP web hosting services offer FTP access which is suitable and very affordable, and the server can be located anywhere in the world. NCH Software provides a list of recommended FTP hosting services here.
Warning: Dictations will be automatically deleted from the FTP server once they are loaded.
You'll need to know the server and logon details for the server you are connecting to:
A sub-folder of the default FTP server folder.
Click to attempt a connection to the server using the current server and logon details.
Select this option to load dictations from a shared drive or folder on a LAN (local area network), or a folder on your local machine.
Warning: Dictations will be automatically deleted from the source drive or folder once they are loaded.
Local Folder Options
Source folder or drive:
e.g., H:\Shared Folders\Typing\Your Folder\\Server\Folder
The source folder may be either a shared drive or folder on a LAN (local area network), or a folder on your local machine. When using a network drive or folder, please ensure that share permissions have been set appropriately.
The source folder may be set to the local folder where your email program stores attachments if you want to automatically load dictations from received emails.
Loading Mode Tab
The loading mode determines when this incoming source will be checked for new dictations, and how many dictations to load if more than one is found.
Manual - One at a time:
The incoming source will be checked when the "Sync" button or menu item is clicked. If multiple new dictations are found, only the one with the highest priority will be loaded.
Manual - All files:
The incoming source will be checked when the "Sync" button or menu item is clicked. All new dictations that are found will be loaded.
Automatic - All files:
The incoming source will be checked automatically at the interval specified in "Check Interval (minutes)". All new dictations that are found will be loaded.
Check interval (min)
This value specifies the time interval in minutes between automatic checks of the incoming source for new dictations. (If manual loading is selected, check interval is disabled.)
File Types Tab
Check the checkboxes next to the file extensions that you want to load from this incoming source.
Note: No file extension checkboxes will be displayed if the Receive Method being used is Express Delegate
