Quikscribe Recorder records in three modes: Overwrite, Insert and Append.
In Overwrite mode dictation will overwrite existing content from the current position in the recording.
In Insert mode recording will be inserted between existing content.
In Append mode recording will always be appended to the end of the audio file, no matter where the position for recording is located. In Append mode if you rewind and review the existing recording, then start dictating, the position pointer will move to the end of the existing file and commence recording at that point
There are three ways to change recording modes. You must start a dictation to move among recording modes.
1. Press the Insert key on your keyboard, which will move the recording modes through Overwrite, Insert, and Append.
2. Select Edit from the top menu and then select Overwrite, Insert, or Append Mode.
3. Set a button on your Hand Control to be Recording Mode. Then press the button on the Hand Control to move through the modes. Select Help > Hand Control Training to set a button on your hand control.
The status bar at the bottom of the Quikscribe Recorder will update and display the current recording mode. In addition, the indicator in the top left corner will display the 1st letter of the recording mode: O for Overwrite, I for insert, or A for Append.
The default recording mode is generally Overwrite. You may change the default Recording Mode. Go to Setting > Record Controls > Record Mode Options to change the default recording mode.
