You can download ExpressScribe for free.
Do a Google search for the URL.   You can use your keyboard to control the dictation to do testing.  
How can I get it to auto load the next file? sm

I'm also new to ES and can't figure out how to get it to auto load the next job file when I click "done" with the current file.  I have all my voice files in a folder and it loads them all, but sure would like to not have to manually load each new one.  Can anyone help?  TIA!

Thank you! She can't download the file to sm
use the player from there, right? She needs the actual disk in order for this to work correctly? Sorry for all the questions. I'm just not familiar w/it and didn't find an actual download for the ability to play the files.
Trying to download a wave file
I am having trouble downloading a PC-Dart dictation into express scribe... any suggestions?
Need help with FTP. Trying to download file from FTP site -sm
and not having much luck.  If I right click on the file name and try to save to a folder it tells me I can't do that.  If I just double click on the file name it downloads the file but to Windows Media and then from there I can't get the file to a folder and into Express Scribe.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Not a computer whiz and I am so frustrated.  Thanks.
Download the file from FTP to your hard drive.
Then hit Load button, find where you saved the file on your hard drive and Load. Now, you're in business.
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.
I tried to download it. It says do not file these copies for some reason. I'm going tomorrow to S
pick up the ONE stinkin' form I need from the federal building. Beats buying 50 at Office Depot!
try express scribe you can download for free. what type file is it?nm
Download a program called Switch and convert the file. nmx
Download Express Scribe (free player) and see if you can pull the voice file into it. nm
Everytime you re-load Word you need to re-load Stedmans medical spellchecker.
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.
Rename your normal.dot file to something else then restart Word. It will create a new file.
I think it is the same type of file, so rename it and replace your autocorrect file with your DQS us
Help..I lost my word file. How can I retreive a file that has been changed? sm

I was working on a large file and had saved it in Word. I then went back to work on the file and hit a key that made the page go blank.  When I went to close the document it asked me to save any changes on the document. I answered yes, and now when I click on that document it is all blank! Shouldnt the previous info saved be there, even if the current stuff is not? Please help me!! Thank you

Depends on the file format of the Short Cuts file.
ShortHand comes with a utility file that can import various formats. You can get that file with the trial download of SH.

I too had a problem months ago and it froze up. I spoke to the company. They said it was because I had too many other programs running and using too much RAM, that it did not leave enuf for EXS. to work properly. They even suggested adding more RAM. They said EXS requires a certain amount of RAM, etc., to function appropriately. Could this be part of your problem too?
Yes, I have been using it for almost a year now and have never had any problems.
I had this problem just after Christmas when I got a new computer and downloaded ExpressScribe.  After searching through their forums, I found out that a lot of people were having a problem, there was some glitch in the program, and everyone was going back and downloading the previous version, which resolved the problem.  This worked for me as well. Good luck.
Anything other than ExpressScribe?

Am I the only one that doesn't like ExpressScribe? The audio always sounds very digitized to me. Are there any other better programs out there?


Hi. Just an opinion, but why don't you try ExpressScribe first and see if that meets your needs? It is free and it is as good, as far as I can tell. You may have to buy a foot pedal that will work with it, or may not. Mine does not. Try the keyboard controls though and see what you think.
An ExpressScribe Question
How do you set the backspace when I lift my foot off the pedal?  Mine is not backspacing at all and I can't' figure out how to set it.  Thanks.
contact expressscribe..sm
a lot of these programs were not ready for Vista yet. I would have waited at least a year before buying Vista due to just that reason. Personally maybe you should have found out of ExpressScribe was compatible with Vista prior to buying the laptop with it preinstalled. It would have saved a lot of hassle.
You might try downloading ExpressScribe.
I think it has a few test files when you first down load it that you could practice on.
expressScribe/Quicktime sm


I downloaded ExpressScribe for work but I also have QuickTime so I can use ITunes.  The QuickTime seems to over-ride the ExpressScribe and play the audio files which are dictation.  I want to use the ExpressScribe so I can use my foot pedal.  When I uninstall QuickTime ExpressScribe works, when I reinstall QuickTime only QuickTime works.  So QuickTime must be set to default or something.

Anybody know how I can get both these to work or is there another player that will work with the USB footpedal to play the dictations but still allow QuickTime on the computer for other stuff?


ExpressScribe hot keys
If you open the ExpressScribe and go to control, then hot key set up you can make it work by assigning keys.  I work in MS Word and was using F5 to open files, but when I have the ExpressScribe reduced and hit F5 it opens the ExpressScribe window instead of my Word file.  I just assigned a different key to open and close the ExpressScribe.  You can also create a new one to assign a file to "done" so you don't have to use your mouse.
ExpressScribe question...sm

I am taking a test for a part time job.  It is required to download ExpressScribe to take the test.  I also had to install some additional files so that ExpressScibe would recognize .sri files.  I did this also.  Well when I go to play the file on there there is nothing, and it says under duration of file:  00:00 minutes.  It is like the file has nothing on it.  Did I do something wrong or is that file corrupated or what? 

ExpressScribe is locking up my

Has anyone had this happened to you lately?  I have been Express Scribe for years and never had any issues with it.  About 2 or 3 weeks ago ES started making my computer run really really really slow.  I checked the Task Manager and it says that ES is making my computer run at 100%.  Why is this?  If I close ES everything runs fine.  I contactd tech support 3 times but they have never gotten back to me.  I even uninstalled it and reinstalled it and that didn't work either.   What should I do?  Are there other free transcription audio players out there?

Thanks so much in advance

...with your user.aco file. Save your autocorrect file to somewhere else. nm
You can save the SH file in a text file and import to IT that way. sm
You may have to do some cleanup in the SH text file, but it sure would be faster than re-entering them all manually.
File taxes under the name on file w Social Security....
Name on W2 doesn't have to match, but your tax return has to match SS records. They don't want your marriage license or anything else. Did that for 13 years as instructed by IRS. Didn't have to change it with SS until state changed rules requiring drivers license to match SS records. Still use my maiden name in some limited circumstances.

I use Dictaphone ExText with ExpressScribe.
ExpressScribe and audio files
Thanks for your reply.  I have used ExpressScribe before, but my predicament is that I need something that will play dictation that has been burned onto a CD.  My CD-RW drive is drive D, and I do not know how to get ExpressScribe to load the dictation that is in that drive. Can anyone help? 
ExpressScribe - how do I delete files?
How do I delete old audio files from ExpressScribe?  These are the ones that I can go and recover if I've deleted from my main screen but they are still backed up.  I've got a ton and don't need to keep any of them - they are just taking up memory space.  Anyone know?
How to get ExpressScribe to pick up FTP files???
Everytime I click on the file to play it pulls up window media player and it gives me an error.  How do I get Express Scribe to play the files?
Question about ExpressScribe & Vista

My mother uses ExpressScribe and she has recently upgraded to Vista.   She is still able to get ExpressScribe to work but her serial foot pedal no longer works.  We purchased an adapter, but haven't had any success getting it to work with Vista.

Any suggestions or comments would be greatly appreciated.



I use an Infinity and it works fine with ExpressScribe. (nm)
If a service wants you to use GearPlayer, though, you can't substitute with ExpressScribe. nm
ExpressScribe-Computer running slow

My ExpressScribe is making my computer run really really slow and in the task manager it is at 100%.  When I close it, my computer works fine?  How do I fix this?  Thanks

Check out ExpressScribe. There is a way with them and it is free. Microcassettes also.
Anyone know if a pedal with Dictaphone adapter will work with ExpressScribe?

Thanks !!!


What a load of ....
hooey!  Forty five-year-old people getting high, cussing like teenagers (can you say no class), and acting like idiots?  You MUST be an old hippie.  The  establishement?  LOL  Yes, I must be a sell out. But then again, I know how to act in a social setting without offending everybody in a  10 foot radius. Don't even get me started about hippies. My brother is a 57-year-old specimen who hasn't grown up either, still toking on his joints every day.  God gave us the ability to judge for good reason. 
Get a load of this....

MTSO here - I *used* to send my accounts Christmas gifts, but I stopped doing it.  Why?  Because one year, after sending a $100.00 gift basket to one of my docs, for thanks, he dictated a formal letter to me, mixed in with his other dictation, thanking me!!??

Another very well to do doc sent me a $3.00 or so Walmart-style Hersey mug with a little bag of Hersey kisses in return for the nice gift basket I sent him.

Two years in a row, another doc couldn't even scrung up a thank you note - no acknowledgement whatsoever.

Another office did the same thing - no thank you - no note - no nothing.

Needless to say, my gift giving came to an end after about three years of this.


Gearplayer, Cyberplayer, ExpressScribe,Transcription Buddy, Stop/Start questions

When you work for yourself which voice player do you prefer?  I have tried all of the above players and all of them seem to distort the voice when you slow it down.  Why can't these players slow down files like the platforms MTSOs use? 

What a load of crap!!!!....nm
they were carrying most of the load
thats why they were sick at the end.
One brick shy of a load.....

Work load
I've been with Amphion since June and it has been pretty easy to steadily increase my line count. I've never been harassed by anyone. There is tons of work and right now mandatory overtime, an hour extra a day plus whatever you want to work after that. I have no complaints myself.
