Download Express Scribe, it's free, when you download the voice files you will listen to....
them in Express Scribe and you can set your footpedal up. I forget where the downloaded files go, can't remember if you can put them where you want them but I would have to search for them to download to Express Scribe - maybe someone else can tell you how. It is much better than what you are doing.

Download Express Scribe for free.
You can download Express Scribe for free, but I would
suggest waiting on the foot pedal.  If you need to do voice files for testing you can using hot keys - slower, but saves you from buying something that will stay in the closet.   You may need a C-phone but I never heard of a company providing one.  Sometimes the company will provide a foot pedal too.

Not sure if it does the files you need but a quick check of their program will tell you. Google it.
You can download Express Scribe for free.
This program has programmed hot keys (the F keys) to do the same things a foot pedal would. A foot pedal does make the going easier. You could try ebay or do a Google search to find a foot pedal that is within your price range.

You can use Express Scribe (or other player)
With the latest update - 4.91 - you cannot use any player other than the one that is built in. Also need a USB pedal.
You use your own player, i.e. Express Scribe
An FTP site is where the voice files are uploaded.  Normally, FTP is where you get the voice files to download to your player.  Then, you type in Word, and then you upload your Word files (transcription) back to the FTP site.  It's not a transcription platform.  I'm no expert though, but I've used FTP sites.  I hope this "kinda" helps.  The other thing you could do is Google FTP sites and see if you can get a better explanation.
Player other than Express Scribe
Does anyone use their windows media player to play transcription files?  Does this work well for you?  What other players would you suggest?
The Express Scribe player uses hot keys.
It takes some getting used to but in your situation, it may be what you're looking for.
Gear Player vs Express Scribe
could anyone please explain to me the difference between these two??  Express Scribe is free, but when am I missing something as to why I would pay to have Gear Player?  they seem awfully similar..thanks.
Express Scribe, Gear Player, etc.

I have used Express Scribe for years and love it. I had to restore my Win XP computer and now it will not play the .dss files.  I also have Express on my Vista without problems.  I have done everything that I know to do to get it to work, installed an older version, downloaded the .dss files, etc.  I am currently having to work on Gear Player or use my laptop to play the sound files.  What else is everyone using out there besides Express, Gear, or Bytescribe?? Any help would be appreciated! 

download Express Scribe NM
Download the voice file to your computer.
Then open ES and load it in. If it's not a supported file format, you can get a program like Switch to convert it to a supported format.
So if I download Express Scribe on my laptap and then...

hook up to my home PC with gotomypc.com I should be able to play files that are on my home PC?

Thanks.  I'm having a hard time figuring this out.

You can have Express Scribe download directly for you.
Under Settings, Automatic Incoming, click Add and use the FTP info you've been given to set up. Make sure your file type is checked. Also, one complaint with this program is that it does not download .dss files.
Works great for me. Fave voice file player is an

Voice decoder for Express SCribe

There is a voice decoder for express scribe named "dss32", which is to be installed along with Express Scribe in some computers to play voice files. I can given u that or may be I can send in ur mail. It is a 180 KB file, quite small.


Heads up folks! I use Express Scribe wav player, but don't waste your money on their other

paid for products because they're buggy and have horrible customer support!  I bought Express Dictate for my doctors and Express Delegate and I have had nothing but one problem after another.  Forget calling, that's not an option.  I have emailed until I'm blue in the face and the "support" I get are canned responses and they do not address the problems I'm having.  They have a forum you can post on, but no one ever posts responses. My client has been extremely patient, actually too patient, and now I'm looking for another alternative.  I can't tell you how many sleepless nights I've had over the past almost 4 weeks.  Thanks for letting me vent...sigh....

Can someone please tell me how to get Express Scribe to download my e-mail attachment/voicfile? tia

Start Stop voice file player and conflicts with Spyware Doctor

I was having problems with StartStop and talked to one of their techs this morning.  One of the bugs it was having was fixed when I turned off Spyware Doctor so I need a new anti-spyware program. 


Iím thinking of trying Spyware Blaster.  I called to see if there were any conflicts with that one but had to leave a message.  In the meantime, does anyone use StartStop voice file player and also use Spyware Doctor without any buggy conflict problems between the two softwares? 

Express Scribe and receiving the voice files...

I have been using Express Scribe to transcribe notes from voice files that are sent to my AOL mailbox.  I was told that AOL mailboxes will only allow smaller sized voice files and that they will not accept larger files.  Does anyone have information regarding this matter?  Is there a better server I should change to so I can receive the larger voice files?


I was also wondering if I should instead use one of those MT platforms where the docís email to that specific platform and the MT picks them up there.  For the life of me, I cannot recall the name of that site.  If anyone knows of the site, can you please let me know. 


All advice appreciated, thank you.    


Express Scribe is very easy. Files download, you will see them, click on one and it starts when you
press your pedal.  That simple.
Advice regarding Express Scribe and FTP sites for voice files...

I have a new client that would like to use his PDA and send me the voice files through email.  I am confused to what programs I need to acquire in order for this procedure to be HIPPA compliant and also to work smoothly. Will Express Scribe work for the voice files and transciption?  I will also need an FTP site, correct?  What reasonable and user friendly FTP sites do you recommend? 


Thank you for any and all advice!     

Digital Voice Editor or Express Scribe - question

I have been using my Sony Digital Voice Editor for transcription, and it is over 2 years old and the foot pedal is just clunking out.  It seems that I cannot just reorder a new foot pedal, but I have to buy the whole kit at $149.00. 

So my question is this - what are the benefits of transcribing with Express Scribe, other than cost is probably just the foot pedal and free download? Am I able to divide up long files on Express Scribe and perhaps "share" them with other transcriptionists?  What are the downs to having Express Scribe?




Express Scribe is free.
Express Scribe is free, but I don't know if it -sm
plays those files. all you can do is try. Good luck.
free voice file software

I am in need of a software that plays .dvf files.  I currently use Gear Player, and although it plays a multitude of different files, I can't get it to play .dvf.  Does anyone know of a free one online I can try?  Thanks!! 

Express Scribe is free and will probably play

any file format you need.   You just need to buy a foot pedal.   Express Scribe also sells pedals, you can find on e-bay, or even the equipment board here. 


Are there any other free players besides Express Scribe?

I have many problems with express scribe.  Hard to explain, but it stems from stopping and starting the recording just one time too many, and the express scribe "freezes up" for awhile.  Sometimes I have to sit and wait for 2 minutes before it will play again.  I have uninstalled/reinstalled it - no help.  This has been going on for years and I am sick of it.  Sometimes I have to reboot my computer to regain control of it.

Anyone know of any other free players out there I could try?  Thanks!

Right click on the file and choose Open With... Express Scribe nm
Couldnt get Express scribe setup to play dss file
Express scribe is FREE and works great!
Express Scribe is free. You need to purchase a license
Anybody know of any free foot pedal/transcription software besides Express Scribe? TIA. nm
Yes, I agree. Free is a good price and Express Scribe will work just fine for you. (nm)
Abacus is not free. It is $20 but worth it. You can download a trial version free which does not h
I have used this for years and have compared to Sylvan, Word, and MP Count, etc. When you have it set to count every character, bold, shift, tab, etc. It is great and always higher than the others. Now if you are wanting gross lines like in Word then no it won't be as high because Word counts blanks lines and Abacus counts a line only if there is a character on it. There is also two places to check for it to count the Headers/Footers. If you have the FREE version then it must be the trial or a very old version so you don't have all the features and functions.
I just pull up in word and save as Rich Text File...nm
Digital Voice voicewave player

Is anyone familar with the digital voice voicewave player?  Do you have any idea of the pricing for software and license?  I got a quote and was blown away.  Just wanted to check that it is correct. 

too late but for future. Need to know what voice player you are using. sm

It won't work on Emdat inscribe so you need another one in place.

Express scribe is a free download, another poster explained what screen you see and what to click.  Save to your desktop so you can fine it. You can use hot keys instead of a pedal. You need to go into the setting and click - work with current word processer so it opens up Word for you.  you can bring up the empress scribe up on desktop and move out of way so you can open your email with the voice file, at the same time, you can drag and drop over to your express scribe player.  Means, Center over file with mouse, hold it down and drag it over to the area and lift off. It drops it right in the player. If you get stuck email me darleneh1111@earthlink.net

I use scribe.net and then download
it onto express scribe. It works well.
I have Start Stop digital voice player--sm
and Spyware Doctor, as well. I have never had any conflicts between the two, and I really do not see why one would interfere with the other. although, I do not leave Spyware Doctor on all the time. I leave it off while I am working, as it did tend to slow things down a bit, but I never had any problems with it. I do run a nightly scan with Spyware Doctor though. I would be careful of other Spyware programs. I have had others that claim to remove spyware from your computer but actually do absolutely nothing. I believe the one I am thinking of is Spyware Eliminator, but I am not sure right off the top of my head. Good luck.
