If you’re a court reporter using Total Eclipse for realtime now, or if you’re simply interested in finding out more about it, this is a webinar you should plan to attend. You’ll learn a lot and you can earn CEU points, too.
Keith Vincent will begin by reviewing the essentials for setting up realtime transcription in Total Eclipse. He’ll explore the Output format dialog (User settings|Realtime tab) and examine the appropriate options for:
Output format. There are 14 options to choose from (in the latest version). What to choose? Keith will explain which ones you should use for realtime output to clients.
Comm device. Which do I use, COM port, File sharing, TCP/IP, API, or a listed modem?
The Setup button. You must set up your Comm device after you choose it. Keith will tell you which Comm devices to use and how to set them up.
Output characteristics. This looks daunting because there are so many check boxes and radio buttons and combo boxes, and most of them are described in ways that seem incomprehensible. In fact, realtime output for court reporters is simple and Keith will demonstrate that you only need to make a small handful of settings. Best of all, they’re simple!
He'll also offer some troubleshooting tips that can help you work your way through problems that might arise. Many things can interfere with a realtime connection and most are easy to resolve – once you know how. Here are some of the problems you might encounter, and trouble-shooting tips for resolving them, that Keith will review during this webinar:
COM ports. Do they need to be the same number on my computer and on my clients’ computers? If not, what can they be?
Baud rates. What is a baud rate and what are the correct baud rate settings? Are they different for different programs?
Device manager button. What is this for and how do I use it? This, too, will be covered.
The settings are prelude to the “real thing,” of course. Keith is going to then put them into action and show you some realtime output using all-new Bridge 2.0, the easy realtime-viewing program by Advantage Software.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Advantage Software has made Bridge available to all reporters for free. You can download it from their website and you can install it on as many clients’ computers as you please. There are no tokens to buy or fees to pay. It’s simple to install and use, and can even be run from a flash drive.
Keith will devote the rest of the webinar to Bridge and, of course, if you want to learn more about it, that’s another reason to sign up. Bridge works with all CAT programs, and Keith will provide every attendee with a thorough understanding of how to use it. Bridge includes at least 20 short Visualizer movies, but that's not the extent of its self-help tools; there are several others and Keith will cover them. From Help to setup to annotations and searches, we're confident that the more you learn about Bridge, the more impressed you'll be.
Here are just a few of the many aspects of Bridge that Keith will cover:
This is a webinar that will provide you with lots and lots of useful information, information that will help you improve your realtime services for your clients and which can help you earn more as a realtime provider.
