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.  
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.

Express Scribe is free, download it at

Download express scribe for free
Not sure if it does the files you need but a quick check of their program will tell you. Google it.
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.

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.
Can you download Express Scribe and see if you can get your pedal to play through that? nm

Express Scribe is very easy. Files download, you will see them, click on one and it starts when you
press your pedal.  That simple.

Hi everybody,

Does anyone know where to go to download the sony digital voice Editor 2? This is supposed to be a free download. I need it to start a new job, and I can't find it. Help anyone?



Are you the former surgery tech? Just curious because I saw your previous emails. No matter. I don't know where you'd find what you're looking for, but I just want to say congratulations on the new job!!!!
yeah, t'is I. thank you very much NN. it's an oncology account. don't know too much about that but I'll give it everything I've got.
Rae, what are your download and ...
upload speeds, and what satellite company are you with?
You may want to download
The voice file onto your hard drive first, and then load it into Express Scribe.
I did download it, but
I cannot get it set right as far as rewinding back far enough.  Any hints? Thx.
where did U download it from? NM

Thanks all I will download it!
will need to download...

This has happened to me before.  You will have to go the website and download the codec in order to play you wav files.  Cannot remember how I did it, but once you find the download you should be fine.  You could just do a search on Express Scribe codec to find the download.

Good Luck---I use Express Scribe also.

download them

yes, you need to download them.  Create a folder on your desk top named something like voice files.  Then download them to that folder. 


Download again
Have you tried removing Express Scribe and downloading it again?

I use this website:

Then go to near the bottom of the page and click:

Download Express Scribe for Windows (Primary Server - zip file)

Some of the other downloads cause the problems you are having. Let me know how it goes.
I have tried that and I can download it....sm
but they said I have to be able to play sri files which you have to download additional stuff to do. I tried that and still wouldn't work. Then she sent me her version she uses and it had that gid file on it and my computer said it didn't recognize it and couldn't download. So it isn't just ExpressScribe, it is other stuff too to enable sri files.
Try a download at Download.com
They used to have a free recorder that would work on the PC...and would be wav file which works in Express Scribe
Wow! That is awful. My first download did take a

but NOTHING like what you experienced (maybe 3-5 minutes instead of almost immediately for me). 

So it probably really depends on where you live, etc., and no good way to predict just how bad it would really be. 

Were your ADT searches really bad too?  Probably took me twice as long as usual, so pretty frustrating, but not totally unbearable.  And the fact that the other reports were downloading in the background while I was working on the current one did make things go smoother than I had expected for the short period of time I lost my DSL and had to use dial-up. 

See the URL for download inside
i know nothing about wireless -- but with DSL mine were taking only about 15 seconds when i signed on. Then i got a replacement machine and it was back to about 5 min to do the initial upload. Tech support said there were problems with the new DQS version, so my replacement machine was reverted to old version. Don't know if any of this is helpful, but that's all i can offer...
You do not download the program onto the
floppy to transport, just your active working file which is called a dictionary file (SPF I think.) You download the program onto your computers and then just transport the dictionary file between them.

You can increase the amount a floppy can hold by creating a directory (or directories) on the floppy and then copying the files into the directory. If you do not do this, the computer has to put all the extra data required for a directory file onto each file you load to the floppy.

So, on your a: drive, you create a file called SH. Then copy the dictionary into that file. You can copy multiple dictionaries onto that file if you want.
You can download to computer. Yes,
if you have a license, you can put it on all your machines. Then you just copy the dictionary file onto a floppy and carry it with you and load into the machine you are using.
Stedman download sm
It is very simple and they remind you each day you have X days left, 10 in all. They don't list a price but I am told it is $179, don't know. Works very well but they should post their prices.
This may be funny, but you have to download something.
I tried the sylcount download too and
I did not care for them. I went with Spellex. Good program. Don't have to save files to any rtf. format, just doc. works good. They have a free trial too.
where did you download the files too. Look for wherever
they are, desktop, my documents, etc.    Not sure what program you are using to try to get them to play, but you can download ExpressScribe free (google for URL) and then pull up reports out of where ever they are. 
You can't download it free any more. You have to buy it now. NM
Thank you. I did not download it but I still cannot find it. sm
It is just when I have to turn up the volume to hear dictators who don't speak very loudly, then it hurts my ears when I forgot to take off my headphones while spell checking, etc.  Thank you though.
Download from Medquist
I think the original poster means the download Medquist made available for employees.  I'm not aware of the BOS being made available in that format by those who hold the copyright.
Download ES and see. If not, you can always Uninstall it. nm
correct, so that others could download them. nm
Yes, I did download the codec,

but it still didn't work.  Maybe I'm doing it wrong.  I just clicked on it, it downloaded, I clicked open, it says it's installed, tried a .dss file, shows 00:00 duration, and then Express Scribe deletes it.  I don't get it. 

I'm having my tech guy look for free conversion programs, but he hasn't found anything yet.

Download them wherever you want onto your computer - sm
presumably into a file on your C drive. I download from Metroscript into a folder I have called MS voice files. Then I just open my Bytescribe, and then open up the file I want to "open" and play. I am sure you can do it the same way with ExpressScribe. My folder is not in the Bytescribe folder, it can be anywhere on your computer. It is not hard to do. You can set MS up to download to the same file every time though so that makes it a lot easier too.
