Description: This passage is mainly about express scripts login. In this passage, the writer tells us how to use Express Scibe version which is from NCH software and one of the most popular programs used by transcriptionists.
This is Karen here and this is going to be an article to show you how to use Express scribe, and if you don’t have it on your computer yet, go and type in Express scribe and it will usually come up the first one on the list, and it’s from NCH software, this is one of the most popular programs used by transcriptionists that are starting out.
So you download it, you don’t need to purchase the Pro Edition, I’ve never used the Pro Edition, so if anybody has questions about the Pro Edition, I can’t help you, I have downloaded the free version, so once you’ve downloaded it and installed it onto your computer, you can come back to some of these technical things.
They have very good technical support, they have screenshots and frequently ask questions, so you can check over here for different things, such as the different foot pedals that you might need and the headsets that you might need, so once you have it on your computer, lose these windows, you want to double click on it and it’ll open up.
I have some files here now, these are files that I use for my articles which I can take them out, and then this is a recording that I do narration to an article that I did the other day, so to get your files into here, there are a couple of ways of doing it, you can load it, you can go to file and you can see that it loads an audio CD.
If you’re doing it from Express scribe itself, personally I go to my file and I will go to my videos and I will look for the audio that I want to use, so here’s a FRS and a 5 promo audio, and all you have to do is to click transcribe with its prescribed and then it’ll open the audio for you, and then you can see that down here it has processed it.
So for transcription I usually leave it at a hundred percent, if the person is talking slowly and you want to get your file done faster, adjust the speed up to where you’re comfortable with it, this increases your volume here, and I’ve never used a lot of the features that are on here, I’ve never had to think anything.
You can see how I open my files, I don’t load them up through Express scribe, I go to the file and I right-click and transcribe, I’ve never used the dispatch, I have to do with email and word, these two here are email and word, I’ve never used those scribe mini, click on that and see what happens, it makes it little.
Then you bring it click on and bring it back up, there are different options in here, there’s an upgrade and there’s a suite, I have never used any of those things before, now this is what I have, I have my volume, I can make this window any bigger, I don’t think I can, now I have my auto adjust a tweak, I have the high base at 500.
My slow playback is 50, fast playback is 150, my rewind and fast-forward are at 1500 with thousand percent at constant speed, that’s what I do for the pedals, once you plug your foot pedal into your computer, clip set out, use your control wizard, here are the hot-keys, if you don’t want to use the keyboard, you can use them.
Now you have foot pedal, instead of a foot pedal, you will use the keys incoming files this, I’ve never used this, if you have people send you files, for example a client is going to send you file, I believe that this automatically loads it up types of files that you can use, I never bother with these codec settings.
I’ve never enabled the speech recognition disk usage, and then your display this that has to do with time stamping, then that’s another, so let’s cancel all that out to do a time stamp, if you’re working with word, you can transcribe inside of this program, I’ve never done it, you can do that, there’s your control file, you can open a default word processor.
So let’s see what happens, this is going to open my word, that’s the template, now if you want to do that, if you have to do time stamping, there’s a way to do it and I have rarely used it, so I can figure out how to do it, I think it’s ctrl T, so let’s see something, now if I do ctrl T and then ctrl V, there’s the time stamp here.
So if you have to time stamp your document every second or minute, all you do is that while you’re playing it, stop it or pause it and do ctrl T and then ctrl V, it will paste it into your document and that cub covers it as far as the basics with Express scribe.
If you need to get into anything more in-depth, I would suggest that you go to their website which I have showed you in the beginning, and look through some of their frequently asked questions or hit YouTube or dailymotion, and look for other articles that have to do with more in-depth operation of ExpressCard.
But this gives you the basics and that’s even with general transcription as many years, I have done the general transcription, all the further that I need to go is what I have showed you, that’s all for this article.
