This is a formatting problem. Just had Word 2007 installed. I do transcription work and need to be able to type one hypen by itself or two hyphens without a space and not have two hypens change to one automatically. This is an extremely annoying feature and is wasting my time. HELP!!!

Can I use my olympus transcription pedal on a phillips voice recorder?


It you install your Olympus transcription pedal and it is working OK you can copy sound files into the appropiate folders and work on them, BUT the files must be a format the Olympus software can read: DS2, DSS and WAV files. MP3 files may also work. Philips devices may not do these. WAV is a universal format, but is not compressed so takes up more space.
It should be straight forward

Olympus DSS Player Pro Woes!


Could it be that the files are just being regularly accessed by one of the server admin tools and the DSS Player application interprets an open file as 'being transcribed'

What happens when a copy of a .DSS file is made to an operators machine and then loaded locally for transcription?

Product key number


Make sure you have Caps Lock on if it is all in numbers and capital letters. If letters are separated by hyphens ( - ) do not type those in, the cursor should jump by itself into the right position for the next block
If that still fails you will need to go to the Microsoft web site and ask for help.

I have Bt.yahoo mail and my categories for contacts have disappeared. Any way I can get them back? Thanks


This happened to me yesterday.

After much thought and experimentation, I finally got them back again!

You need to click on "Create a new category" then simply re-type the exact name of your list, putting a hypen between each word (if there was more than one word in the original name) e.g. if the missing category was called Work Colleagues, then simply call the new category Work-Colleagues.

When you click on save - hey presto! your contacts for that list re-appear.

BT recently changed the way you need to name categories by making them one word only and the popular theory is that the service provider deleted any contact categories that had more than one word in them.

They also now don't allow special characters, so just in case they suddenly decide to class a hyphen as one of these, I would strongly urge you to re-name your categories when you get them back again e.g. cahnge Work-Colleagues to just Work or WorkColleagues etc.

I really hope this helps. If it does, please post a reply to let me know and then spread the word! There must be more than just the two of us that are/were affected.

If not, post anyway and I'll see if there is anything else you can try.

Trial Product Code won't enter Window 2007 office home/student


It is possible that your installation of the Office program may have become corrupt. The best thing to do is to contact Compaq support and have them give you another trial code. If that should fail they can then send you another copy of the trial program for a re-install.

Using Wordperfect 12, I sometimes need to type 2 hyphens (--).


Go to tools, QuickCrorrect, Format as you go and turn off anything you don't want.
I have the lot turned off.
Any of the things on the Quick correct menus can bog or crash WP.

Foot pedal


Make sure you are installing the Transcription version of the software not the Dictation version (Transcription version serial number starts with RTM and dictation starts with RDM). The foot pedal will not work with the dictation version of the software.

Foot switch will not respond.


The answer is all in the serial number you use to install the DSS player!

Look carefully and you will see the recorder disk has in my case an [E] printed above the install serial number and the transcription pedal has [T]

Install the same disk with the E the driver is there, the control in Control Panel is there, but the foot switch does not work with the software. Put in the serial number with the [T] and foot switch works first time!

If you uninstall the play and then reinstall with the [T] serial number you do not need to reboot or even unplug the foot switch from the USB.
