your wave player and load it.

Just open glo file in Word, highlight all, then change case and save back
to glo file. Use the Alt key trick to highlight just the column of words, then Shift + F3 to toggle through the change case commands. First save your glossary under a different name so you also keep the original.

the little white piece of paper icon to bring up the window where you ADD your new entries to, type your abbreviation in the Keyword box, then drop down to the Text to Type box and put in what you need it to say, then click Okay. You're done! If you want to delete your entry, arrow down to it, then click on the Trash Can icon. It'll ask if you want to put it on the clipboard, say yes and hit okay. If you want to modify it, use the little hand on the piece of paper icon. I like to click on the Disk icon to save stuff once I enter it, too, as a backup. If you're working and want to enter a paragraph or a page, you'll hightlight your stuff, bring up the ADD window, copy and paste it into the Text to Type area using the commands on the bottom of that box, name it, and hit okay. To use hot keys and stuff, you'll have to read the instructions in the help file. Good luck! ..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.
I did try to save the file first but it wouldn't even let me save it.
There's a download to save to WP5.1, not open. Try
using the Recover Text From Any File filter. Drop down the file types in the open dialog box to find this filter. Save the documents to your hard drive first--don't try to open them from the disks.
If it's in Word, just right click it and save it. If another format, copy
In the ESP window. Click on Files and then Save As. Then you can browse for your A drive. SM

If you're saving to a jump drive, just look for your removable storage device, on my PC it's drive E.

Good Luck!

how about if you open play control and click 'properties' -sm
Does "MIDI Synth" come up there so you can put a check mark? No it's not the same as microphone. My other PC, instead of "MIDI Synth" says "SW Synth Balance."

Another thing that might help is to go into Control Panel, Sounds, audio tab at top, then click on advanced under playback preferred device. There are a lot of settings there. I have it set to stereo headphones now. A while back, on another job, "laptop stereo speakers" setting sounded best. I was using a headset and was NOT using a laptop, but that setting worked best for me.

no problem... just go to File and Save As
then from the drop-down box chose the Word .doc format to save your file as.  You can also program one of your F keys or a control or alt key to do this for you, using the Tools --- Settings --- Customize --- Keyboard
You have to right click the file and
save it to your computer. Then open express scribe and load the files from wherever you saved them.
You can't just right click on the file itself?
That's what I understood you could do. Again, I don't have any dss files to try it on, so I'm shooting in the dark. Sorry about that.
It's very simple...you click on File, then...
Import and Export.  You just follow the instructions from there.  I think there are maybe 2-3 steps, and that's it!  I export mine to a CD.  Then you just reverse the process by using import to get them to your new computer.

If it is Shorthand, save the SPF file to a disk, then if you buy Shorthand yourself....
you can just drop the SPF file into it. That is not dishonest since you are the one who put the macros in. I am sure is it is another Expander there is a way to save the macro file and then drop it in the expander you buy on your own.

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.

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.
How do I get it ST to open when escription is open?

an .exe file is not a voice file
I'm no techie, but it sounds like they might've sent the wrong file by mistake. Or could it be a program you need for testing/working for them that they sent? What is the name of the file (if it is something you can say here)?
save it for another day
Yes, I agree with you, but apparently some people are unable to NOT be rude, so I have decided to give it up for today..... it just takes to much energy to argue. Not to mention, they can't even grasp the fact that you and I are two DIFFERENT PEOPLE................. so, there ya go.

oh, and bye the bye, in the churches I grew up in Amen was a form of agreement.
Can you tell me how you save your
that it cannot be saved. I'm sure this is a no brainer and I'm making it worse by thinking too much about it - any help would be appreciated.
Will somebody save me?

Hi, deep trouble here.  Reorganized under my desk (bad mistake, I guess, although the cords are nice and lined up now) and when I plugged the C-phone back in it went crazy and now I get dial tone from handset, but that is all.  Can't find the manual after searching for hours.  Anyone know what might be wrong or if I need to reprogram this thing?  I went to their website, but it is down at the place where you sign in.  Of course!  Can't work, so need as much help as I can get.  Thanks in advance. 



Even if you save yourself a
template, you still listen to the entire report and change the words as necessary. You don't leave it if that's not how it's dictated. Setting up your own template saves time & Keystrokes because a lot of times you will have entire sentences or sections the same, but you still must ALWAYS listen to the entire report & make any and all changes.

In addition to OPs, I also make macros for PEs, ROSs, etc., for dictators who usually are repetitive.
I always use RXList. com on the web and save
paper that way:)
Did you save the sound
Did you save that sound file on your computer? That has surely got to be a first!!
