Starting job using Olympus Player/pedal - does this have a good player with slow down speeds - I do

Until now I have always used company software with player included.  I hate to spend money and find out the player is mickey mouse!!

Thanks- you may e-mail me if you prefer.

My rewind is at 900 and 100 with the variable
But what if you don't hear and have to rewind??
Ugh, then you have to hear it again. It drives me bananas!!
I think having to rewind with pauses is
worse. It's really hard to find the snippet that he zipped through when there is dead air on both sides. I have to make sounds like Chewbacca during those reports.
Rewind InScribe
okay...as I use Express Scribe instead of the built-in player, can't say for sure, but when I played around when the built-in player, to decrease playback or increase playback in InScribe, you can do Shift/Control/+ to do either one and you can do Control R for regular playback...that's according to the Shortcut help that I read. Let me know if it works. There HAS to be a way to change your rewind to 0 or 3 or 5 or whatever you want it to be.. In don't see why your company won't allow Express Scribe. It doesn't interfere with a thing. The only keys that can't be overridden is F2,3, and 4 and if you are using those keys only as play, RW, and FF, then you don't need ExpressScribe.

I am using Express Scribe, and I tried the settings and that didn't help. Thank you!
Yes, I am afraid I did all of that. It keeps coming back and saying that it is not a supported file. Thank you very much for helping!
Under settings. sm
Click Playback tab. For Rewind, I have set mine to 500 and Speed at 150.
Try the Settings.
Under playback tab you can change the rewind. Mine is set at Step (ms) 500 and Speed (%) 150.
Go into Settings.
On the Control tab use the footpedal setup wizard to set what part of the pedal does what. On the Playback tab, you can change the backspace. On the
Have You Tried the Settings?
I haven't used Express Scribe since school, but have you changed the settings?  I had to change it to change the settings for what food petal I was using.  The one I chose was V-something (VEC?  VRC?) 3-pedal, I can't remember. 
It may have to do with your settings sm
under File, preferences. Make sure you don't have verify target window checked. Also, may be the pause....after so many keytstrokes. Play around with that one. Every body is different but what works for me is pause 5 msec after 1000 keystrokes.

Also, try waiting for the expansion to appear before you type the word after it.

And below, make sure you have simulate Keystrokes checked.
On Exp Scribe, click on settings,file type, and if you don't what type of file, just check them all. Then give it a try and see what happens.
Did you try the settings on the
monitor itself.  Mine has buttons to push to change the screen size and my old one had a dial.  That's about as much as help as I can give. 
Did you check all your settings and especially....
your password in OE? If so, is the Spamgard on in Yahoo so that it is keeping from going to your OE?
Settings, control and then where?

I DID go into the settings and *told* it what to --sm
count. It was still very inconsistent and would not count headers, even though I *told* it to. I would count lines with it and then recount with Sylcount and Abacus was always fewer lines. This was just MY experience with it and I don't need to be made to sound like I am not familiar enough with these programs to not do the *settings* correctly. thank you.
it depends on the settings
I worked before for gross lines, but it depends on the margins and the font setup.  I had one account that was Ariel 12 and the other was only a font of 10.  With the 12 font I got more lines credited as opposed to the 10 font.  Working at 9 cpl without spaces actually evens out to about the same as the lesser amount with spaces.  You can download Abacus and then take a document you have typed and have it count it without spaces and with gross lines and then see the difference, it's really not that much.
click settings then...sm
under Playback tab, adjust the Auto Backstep on Stop (0-5000ms). 1000ms = 1 second.
Go to settings, then file and
it gives you a spot to put the number of days to delete files.
Thanks so much - still having problems.  Got the wizard to work on a couple of ports, but only to the push rewind pedal - then will do nothing - locks up and goes crazy with buttons on Express Scribe flashing continuously...any ideas?
Will do both, but how do I get those settings back?
Mine won't let me do that. Wonder if it could have to do with the settings? nm
Changing settings

You can change the settings.   With your mouse on the main desk top screen, right click and go downto properties.  Go over to the settings tab and this will give you options for changing the font size.   You can change it in that setting by changing the pixel settings, or you can click on the Advanced button and change your DPI setting (or both).

Hope that helps.

I believe if you go into your settings while booting up. SM
On my PC if you push F2 or F8 during the boot up process it will take to your configuration settings.  There will be an option that will be able to clear the password so that you will not be asked for a password anymore.
Yes, I had looked at settings, but I don't see how
to do that. My screen is stretched now, and maybe I'm looking at the wrong place. I dunno....I'm seriously challenged when it comes to this stuff....thanks for replying
Playback Settings for ES
Hello.  You can go to the Playback Settings in ES and find the Auto Backstep on Stop heading.  Mine is set to 1780 that allows for a reasonable auto backstep. You can adjust to your liking.  Once you do that, go to "Control" and run the Footpedal Setup Wizard.  That should do it!  Best of luck.
Daytime 70, nighttime 65 for my AC settings. nm
In the settings, click the Incoming tab...
and then you can select file(s) for Express Scribe to scan. Then it will scan those and will load files automatically.
Did you try the Settings in Express Scribe?

The pedal controls won't work until you open Express Scribe, go to Settings/Settings.../Control, and select VEC Pedals USB or something like that; 3-pedals.  Then, you click on "Foot Pedal Control Setup Wizard" and it will have you to press rewind, fast forward, and play.  After that, the pedal *should* work.

I received ByteScribe with my USB foot pedal but I didn't like it so I uninstalled it and downloaded Express Scribe with no additional software.

If that doesn't work, I really don't know what to tell you.  Sorry .


I could see much better but the settings slowed down my computer..sm..
I didn't have any trouble getting it back though.  Hope you find something that works. 
I didn't like what settings I chose (sm)
using Tonks directions so I tried changing back to the original settings and had a bit of trouble regaining them. Just a heads up for anyone wanting to try changing your settings using the wizard. You might create a system restore point before you make any changes so you can easily restore your old settings if need be.
Click on Settings and it is under the Playback tab.
You would have to change the margin settings.
Under Styles, find the List Number and change the hanging indent setting. This will then apply to all documents based on that template.

EMDAT pedal settings
*silent screaming*  Is there any way to change how far back the voice file goes back when you take your foot off the pedal?  I disabled the pause/play option because I went it to rewide a second or two but not the 10 it is currently doing.  This system is a pain.  I'm hoping it grows on me!

Go to options - date/time and is there. 
Express Scribe settings
Try going under settings, files, and select .dss I have been using ES for 4 years and there are always quirks... not sure how I get the solution each time. Hope this works.
Did you go to your settings and do the control set up wizard? nm
Yes - DSS files are checked in settings


Sort of. The software usually has a settings

where you just click on it and press the pedals as it requests.  You can also change the function of the pedals - for example make the left one rewind and the right one FF, etc. 

Some software will only work with certain pedals.  Generally a USB-1 pedal will work with the majority of the software, but not always.  Some software requires a special foot pedal.  

Anyway the programming is very easy, takes 2 minutes tops. 

If you change MS Word settings to
... do you have to switch it back to white background/black type when you send in your work?

I send my work FTP and wondering if I send it blue background/white type, will the MTSO get it that way or will it appear normally with the white bkg/black type?

I hear that using the blue bkg/white type eases eye strain, which will help me, and wondering if I need to change it back before sending it via FTP.
MS Word grammar settings?

I would like to set up my MS Word to catch as many grammar errors as possible.  Should I just check every box? 


Make sure you check the 32-bit/64-bit settings (sm)
I'm having some problems with compatibility with my new laptop because it is 64-bit. I don't completely understand 64-bit means, but apparently a lot of software is only 32-bit compatible right now. I'm having to do all kinds of things to get just simple stuff, like Adobe Flash Player, to run correctly on my 64-bit system. I don't use the software you mentioned but I wouldn't be surprised if there were issues with loading it on a 64-bit system.
Change the settings in "wod" to do what exactly?
