How to Action a Dictation

A dictation can be loaded from the tracking grid by –

  • Double-clicking the selected dictation
  • Clicking the load button

When a dictation has been loaded, the Lexacom type toolbar will appear.

The toolbar is pinned to the bottom of your screen and will remain on top of other windows, even when the dictation grid has been hidden.

Menu Button

The Menu button is used to access the Lexacom Type menu to access the Settings, show the addition playback controls and activate the reporting Dashboard (if one has been set for the user).

Show Dictation Button

The Show Dictations button hides or reveals the dictation grid.

Finish Dictation Button

The Finish Dictation button marks the currently loaded dictation as complete (Dispatched) and returns the user to the Dictation grid to load another dictation.

Forward Button

The Forward button opens the Forward window to forward the dictation to another user, pool or Lexacom Scribe; when the dictation is forwarded it is unloaded and is moved to the chosen location

Return for Review Button

The Return For Review button unloads the currently loaded dictation and returns this to the author, either for amendment of the audio file, or to return the typed dictation for review.

Eject Button

The Eject button unloads the currently loaded dictation and leaves this in the user’s Dictation list; the ejected dictation is visible only to the user that ejected the dictation unless this is forwarded to a pool.

Finish Dictation and Load Next Button

The Finish Dictation and Load Next button marks the currently loaded dictation as complete (Dispatched) and loads the next dictation immediately, without returning the user to the dictation list.

View Dictation Details Button

The View Dictation Details button opens a window to show dictation details including any notes made by the Author. See How to View Dictation Details and Notes

Speed Slider

The Speed slider is used to control the speed of playback within Lexacom Talk. If the slider is dragged to the right the playback speed is increased (up to 60% playback time); if the slider is dragged to the left the playback speed is decreased (up to 250% playback time).

Volume Slider

The Volume slider is used to control the volume of playback within Lexacom Talk. If the slider is dragged to the right the volume is increased (up to 100% of PC’s playback volume); if the slider is dragged to the left the volume is decreased (down to silent). If the volume slider is increased to maximum and the playback volume is still too quiet, the Windows volume level may require adjusting.

Dictation Progress Bar

The Dictation Progress bar shows the current progress of the dictation. The first set of numbers show the current position within the dictation; the second set show the total length of the dictation; the third set show the current time remaining.

Priority Counts

The numbers show the count of currently waiting dictations of each priority, ranged from the most urgent priority (left) to least important (right). This count refreshes automatically except when a dictation is loaded.

Volume Level Indicator

The Volume Level indicator shows that there is volume on the dictation; this will increase and decrease as the dictation plays to show that audio has been recorded.
