I'm an official reporter. I have a cushy job in Kansas. I'm thinking I need a change, so I'm looking into freelance. There aren't any big Court Reporting Service Companies here, so I would be on my own. Let me have it if you've got an opinion.

Eclipse & DNS 15 users, did any of the items change that we're supposed to remove from it's vocab, i.e., punctuation commands, etc.? Or did you follow what we removed in a previous version?

As I understand it, EclipseVox can sync at least two channels of audio, so I could sync my mask and room audio. Can it sync more than two channels? I'd love to sync a couple room tracks in addition to the mask track if possible. I don't have Eclipse yet. Also, I remember reading about an issue with syncing and 15. Does anyone know how things stand there? Thank you!
