Good morning, fellow voice writers! Do any of you know of any limitations on voice writing in the federal deposition arena? I know of none personally, but wanted to confirm that. Thanks!

I normally transcribe depos directly to Word using my table audio (I know, but I can't afford thousands on something better). Today I had a snafu when I was asked to leave between depos for a client conference and when I came back in I did not turn my table audio back on. So it's the first time I'm using my voice file to transcribe from dragon. I'm feeling ridiculous as it is and now I can't figure out how to make my foot pedal work. Usually I use The Record Player free for my audio playback with my USB pedal (my table audio files record as mp3). Can someone help me? Should I try to convert the .dra file to mp3 or wav? Thanks in advance --

In Georgia, we have a shortage of court reporters. What's it like where you are?

What a fun life I am currently living. Dinner conversation with a husband, who is now a colleague, sure has changed! (newbie fun!) Steve Murphy carted a very difficult class today. You know the feeling, 1st time covering a class. Guest speaker. Super fast talker, switching topics, moving all over the place! Some of the "mistakes" from that class are below. Keep in mind, he realizes the mistakes by hearing the snickers of his student. (poor guy) He said:Maturation Dragon heard:(don't make me type it) He said: Is that it Dragon heard: exotic Bless his heart! I think I'll buy him a drink after the day he's had! #cartlife

Hi friends! My island the British Virgin Islands, was devastated by Hurricane Irma. I am a student and was nearing completion. I'm feeling like 'a fish out of water' right now. Please pray for our country. Don't know when we will recover.
