Emdat/Inscribe-Is there a way to decrease

the rewind setting? It rewinds too far every time I release the play button or if I push rewind button. I have looked at all the options and I can't find a place to set the rewind amount.

EMDAT/Inscribe

I'm lost. This is something I don't think I've heard of. Could someone explain how it works and where I would have to get it?


 


Thanks


EMDAT/Inscribe
It is not something you go and get unless you are starting up your own business. It is a type of VPN that some MTSOs use. Personally, I hate EMDAT and Inscribe is not much different. I have worked on both and disliked them both. I have yet to work with either that provided anything less than a sub-rate spell checker. You can add words of course, but that takes time that you do not get paid for. I rely on auto-complete in my Word program, which you cannot use with either system. Overall I give it a thumbs down, but that is just my opinion. I run from any ad suggesting EMDAT/Inscribe.
EMDAT/Inscribe
I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to know that I am not alone in my feelings about EMDAT/Inscribe. I quit a job after just 2 days because I hated it so. The MTSO could not understand why I wasn't "in love" with her system. I told her why, but she refused to listen. Maybe there are MTs who love it, but it is on my highly dislike list. Will never work with it again unless I am forced to.

How difficult is this platform to learn?  Also, is it difficult to get a good line count if you have a decent account?


TIA


Emdat/Inscribe
Why do want to type in word? I use this program also and type reports in the window provided by the program. Maybe I am not understanding your question.
Emdat/Inscribe
Yes, I have noticed that also. What I do is listen for the info needed, then access wherever it needs to go. Sometimes I may need to write it down if its alot. Pain in the you know what I know.
IT and Emdat Inscribe
Every since upgrading my Inscribe I can no longer use my Instant text. Is there a way to fix this? I am totally lost now. Are there any other programs that will work with this? I have tried several times the patch or whatever it is called but still not working. I even tried to uninstall and reinstall IT without success. Any suggestions?
Emdat inscribe
Anyone know if either ShortHand or Shortcut Expander program will work with Emdat Inscribe?  Thanks.
Emdat/Inscribe

For anyone who has used the Inscribe program - if you have more than one report on a dictation file, do you know how to get the voice file for the 2nd report after you have got the demographics for that report?   I can get the 2nd format but not the voice file.  Thanks. 


 


Emdat/Inscribe
Thanks. I will try this.
EMDAT, INSCRIBE

If anyone uses this program...could you please let me know what text Expander program you can use...If this question has been answered before...sorry...I don't get on here every day, and have been using Inscribe without any text expander because the one I have does not work with it...so I thought I would get some input as to which ones are able to be used with this software.


Thanks!


EMDAT, INSCRIBE
I use InstantText without any problems.
The latest InScribe from Emdat sm
Will work with my USB Infinity pedal as I have just set it up. It will also run with InstanText. QUITE the upgrade from the Emdat I tried to use about 6 or 7 yrs ago I can tell you that. It is MUCH better, user friendly and I think I'll be more productive on it.


EMDAT/InScribe question. sm
Does anyone work with version 4.91? From what I understand, this latest upgrade will not work with Express Scribe or any other outside player. I need to purchase a USB foot pedal and would like to know if anyone has a particular brand they use and are happy with (and company where purchased). Thanks!
Emdat InScribe & Footpedals

Hi everyone,


Emdat InScribe 4.3 works only with foot pedals that can be configured or programmed for specific keystokes.  F2 is play, F3 is Rewind and F4 is fast forward by default in Emdat.  If you have the ability to configure a foot pedal to these keystorkes (function keys), then that foot pedal will work with InScribe 4.3.


Emdat InScribe 4.91 has a "configure foot pedal" utility that allows you to configure any USB foot pedal.  This is a newer release of InScribe and we have been informed of some issues with this configuration feature.  InScribe 4.92 is in beta and if you have a foot pedal (such as Infinity) that did not work with 4.91, please contact beta@emdat.com to get 4.92.


We apologize for this issue and believe it is resolved in the latest version.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Emdat Help Desk at 630-743-0500 x1.


Word & Emdat InScribe

Word can be used with Emdat InScribe, but in a limited fashion.  On the InScribe toolbar, there is a WORD icon. When you press that icon, it will open Word (if you have Word XP or higher) and you can type in a bare Word editor.  Your spellchecker will work as normal (if using Stedmans or any other 3rd party spell checker). 


The problem with Word is that Emdat strips out many of the formatting that Word creates.  Not all the formatting is stripped out, only the major formatting features such as font size, font color, and fonts.  If you are in Word and setup margins within the document, they will transfer back to InScribe without being stripped and sometimes (not always) cause problems for the person viewing the final transcription.  To avoid this (and use Word), simply don't use ANY word formatting, but instead, just use Word to type.  This will work fine with InScribe.


InScribe 5.0 is Word based.  It is due out later this year (2008) and will replace the existing Editor (where you type now in InScribe) with Word 2003 or higher.


I hope this information helps.  If not, please call us at the Emdat Help Desk at 630-743-0500 x1.


Thanks,


Emdat Help Desk


EMDAT InScribe -- not friendly
Terrible platform. 
If you are talking about Emdat Inscribe..sm
that's the way the system is. It is not you or your computer. It is not designed to help you make lines, but just the opposite. I hated it.
What is your opinion of the Emdat, InScribe program?

I may have an opportunity to work for a company that uses this program. If you have used this, I would like to know what you think of this program, etc. I have worked in DQS and I liked it as it was very user friendly. If you have had experience with each of these programs, I would really appreciate the pros/cons, comparison of each as well.


Thanks so very much.


Emdat/Inscribe foot pedal?

Does anyone have any experience with what foot pedal to use for this? I went to the site and they suggest a DicTran pedal that is pre-programmed to work with your keyboard. Also, when you do use it, do you need to press the F1, F2, etc. keys on your keyboard or just use the pedal and that's it? It's also been suggested to use a Gearsplayer, but that's kind of expensive with getting the software, totalling $200. It would be $106 for the DicTran pedal. I have a Dictaphone pedal right now, but was told that would not work with Emdat. Please help!


Thanks!


Emdat foot pedal/Inscribe
I've read mostly negative comments about this.  Does it work with Microsoft 4000 Keyboard?  Is it decent to use as long as demos are pre-filled?  Is it hard to learn?  Thank you for suggestions. 
Integrity's EmDat/Inscribe platform..sm
I have never used this platform in any of my employments, and I was wondering about the learning curve, is it easy to use/learn, what are its good/bad points??  Any and all responses really appreciated!!  
older version Emdat Inscribe
after receiving the info on here, I decided that I wanted to KEEP Emdat Inscribe 4.3.202. (It can still be downloaded and my company has not told us to upgrade.) If I DO upgrade to the newest, which is 4.9 I think...are you saying that the Infinity pedal will work with the newest Emdat by configuring the pedal? I've done that in the past, but would you mind sending the process in case I do have to upgrade. I wish they'd leave things as they are.
emdat/inscribe foot pedal

What type of pedal works with this and where did you get it?


Thanks.


Emdat Inscribe Auto text

New to Inscribe and when I try to expand my word in auto text the cursor jumps to the next line.  Even did this when I tried a key other than the enter key.  Also have Instant text(older version, Instant Text III Pro, but seems to be taking a long time to get used to.  Any thoughts on these two expanders, which is better to use?  Thank you


need emdat/Inscribe foot pedal
thanks
What type of foot pedal do you need to use Emdat/Inscribe?
Is it USB? If you have a 9-pin, can you use a converter?
EMDAT/InScribe foot pedal issues

I have an Infinity foot pedal that I am using with EMDAT/InScribe.  The pedal works, just not very well.  There is a 2-3 second delay and sometimes it will not stop the audio.  I cannot play the audio file at all if I am not in the InScribe program window.  Sometimes I will lose the audio all together if I am on the web researching things.  It is very frustrating!  I have tried every suggestion on the support page.  I have updated everything on my computer and ran every scan possible.  I do not want to buy a new pedal as this one works.  I hope there is some kind of "fix" for this.  Any suggestions would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! 


I am running Windows XP professional with Service Pack 3, DSL, Trend antivirus, and the latest versions of Windows Media Player, IE, InScribe, etc. 


Thank you  Thank You  THANK YOU  in advance! 


Anyone willing to share Emdat Inscribe tips/tricks?

I recently started working on the Emdate Inscribe platform. It is a little more cumbersome to maneuver than what I am used to, and I was wondering if any of you seasoned Emdat MTs might share any tips or tricks you've found to speed yourself up using this system?  I've had a couple "glitches" with the function to look up/paste doctor names, for example, and not being able to close out the "prior transcriptions" box because there's no X! Not too much help from the MT company so thought I'd try here - any tips will be greatly appreciated, or if you know of any websites or other resources.  You can respond here or to my email and thank you in advance!



Is it possible to save my autotext entries in Emdat Inscribe
and copy them to Shorthand?  I have so many of them saved in Emdat's autotext and I would hate to have to re-type them into Shorthand.  Is this even possible?  Thanks for any input on this!!
Emdat Software Question for Emdat Users

Hello:


I have a question about the Emdat software.  Regarding the cc: box, sometimes, you have to type in the address, because the address is not in the database.  I have found that when you try to pause the audio with either the foot pedal or the "F" key assigned to pause while typing the address, the audion will not pause; it keeps on playing.  You should be able to pause the audio while trying to type the address into the database.  Anyone else notice this, anyone?  Thank you kindly.


Does Emdat work with F keys or is is something else? Is Emdat

MQ DQS pay decrease? not here

Never heard of that one.  Was told lines would increase but nothing about rate decrease and I've been on DQS since day one


May be your management padding their own, but mine did not and I would not have settled for it, period!


pay decrease
Going back to MT from ME will mean getting all the worst dictators who can't dictate on ASR. That will be the only reports you will see if you go back to MT, so I don't see how we can gain by that. Between a rock and a hard place.
pay decrease

The ME are their most knowledgeable employees because that is what it takes to be an editor. You need tons of experience and years of transcription to edit correctly from the gibberish that comes on the screen. Yet, they decrease your pay for ME by 20% and expect an increase in productivity by 25%. As all the worst dictators are not ASR but need to be transcribed, how do they expect the struggling MTs (newbies) and less experienced MTs to make a living. This sucks.


Decrease in pay.

I received my letter today, and I am very angry.  The price of gas is going up, which will cause everything else to go up, and we are getting a decrease in pay.  


Decrease in pay
Yes, I have received a letter.
more like decrease of 25%
it's the same scenario when we went on DEP -- when you inquired about how many were having a 20% increase they made you feel like you were doing something wrong or not trying enough because there were TONS AND TONS of MTs out there that were just having tremendous increases in their line rates. I really don't know how they sleep at night!!
Do they ever decrease your pay?
Can they?
Sorry, I did not have a substantial decrease in pay
So donít think that would fly with the labor board. Very few posting about VR have anything positive to say; therefore the hater tag. I would say they either have not given it a try and slamming because they feel they CANNOT make a decent salary or they just are unable to do VR.
DQS LINE COUNT DECREASE
OKAY LADIES, SO WHAT DO WE DO? SEEMS WE HAVE ALL EXPERIENCED THEFT OF OUR LINE COUNTS - HOW ABOUT TEAMING UP AND FIGHTING THIS?
DECREASE IN PAY!! LETS REBEL

they want to decrease our ME pay by 20%. we need to all be asked to go back to MTs and earn what we are worth


I was told when I trained on DQS that there would be a decrease
in pay for lines done as ME.
decrease dictation speed
Gosh, thank you for writing.  I tried it, though (CTRL F2 and ALT F2), and nothing happened.  Am I missing a step? 
Can quit if "substantial decrease in pay" ..sm

or hours".  THIS is how it works, per Labor Board, clearly stated.  Or maybe you'd like to educate us on "how it works".  Who's talking about "hating", which you keep bring up?


Way to increase/decrease voice file.

decrease Dictaphone dictation speed
In ExText, by using the Transnet box, there's an option to decrease the speed of dictation. Well, I have mine all the way to the left, as slow as it will go, but there are some dictators who talk so fast, I can't keep up. Does anyone know of any method to decrease the speed even further than what the Transnet box shows?
oh geeze - 4-6% wage decrease, I/we should be so lucky!! My pay has dropped (sm)
30% - yes, that's right 30 PERCENT!! - in the last ten years.  This is all due to the new and improved (ahem!) creative ways of now counting the lines and what's included and what's not included.  You can't tell me doctors aren't making money these days.  If there were no money to be made, NOBODY would want to become one!!
Sorry - do not know what happened to my above post. I press 2 for decrease, 3 for increase. nm

In InScribe
If you F1 into the bracketed fields and then hit the space bar, the bracketed field will delete. I avoid this by just starting to type after I F1 into the fields - No need to hit the space bar. The blanks being bracketed are helpful when you need to go back and listen, you just F1 to it, find your place on the voice file, and fill in the blank. If you're not hitting the space bar, I'm not sure what the problem is.
