Hand Control Microphones:
Quikscribe is configured to work with certain hand control microphones. If using the Philips SpeechMike, you will also need to install the drivers from the CD that comes with the SpeechMike. The Olympus DR-2000 mike does not require additional software driver installation.
Portable Digital Recorders:
Configured using the QS Downloader program, and files are sent to transcription using settings in QS Recorder
Note: If you’re using the Philips Digital Pocket Memo (DPM) or other model of portable recorder, click here for detailed configuration instructions with QS Recorder. If using other portable recorders, use Fixed Disk Mode in QS Downloader Settings.
If this is a new install for the organization, then network folders need to be set up, as described in this example:
Create a folder on a shared network drive and name it QSFILES, then create subfolders with names of your transcriptionists (e.g., “S:\QSFILES\TYPISTS\SALLY”, “S:\QSFILES\TYPISTS\JOE”, “S:\QSFILES\TYPISTS\BETTY”). This is for sending files over your network – you need to do this step only once. When you send a file, you will have the option to add/modify your destinations. In QS Recorder, the send destination is mapped to S:\Typists.
Also, create a subfolder called Management under QSFILES (such as S:\QSFILES\Management). Then in the QS Recorder Settings, under File Management, enter the Management Folder path for each QS Recorder. This allows the QS Player to update the management statistics for all files that are in process.
IMPORTANT!: Quikscribe Software Registration
The Quikscribe Recorder and Player software licenses must be registered within 30 days of installation. Don’t wait!!!
