Question about Sony ICD-MX20 Digital Voice Recorder

Open Question

IDC-MX20 is not accessible

I installed the DV Editor software and Dragon Naturally Speaking software; when I connect the IC recorder a "Digital Voice Editor" window pops up and says:
ICD-MX20 is not accessible.
The IC recorder or the device is not ready.

I have a Sony VIAO PC with automatic updates enabled. Anyone has any ideas how to fix this problem, please.
Thank you much. :)

SOURCE: syncing Sony ICD-MX20 with Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 on Vista

the workaround seems to be

buy an Olympus recorder (supposedly they issued a patch for DNS 10 in a couple of days)

or

tell DNS that the source is a PDA generating WAV, MP3, etc.

havn't tried this myself yet. some say it it isn't that awful. But I too am very dissappointed.

Lookup serial number


The key might be on the manual or the box if its not on the cd.
Dragon Naturally Speaking is a software program designed by Nuance Communications that enables a user to speak instead of type to both transcribe information and control his computer. This is beneficial if you don't like typing or physically cannot do it.
The software requires a headset microphone to work and some configuration to get started. To continue using Dragon Naturally Speaking, you must register it or it disables itself.
Activation is done online and requires a product serial number.
The location of the serial number varies depending on the software version, but it should be located on the box, CD case or manual.

Start Dragon Naturally Speaking.
When it completes the loading process, click "Activate Now" when prompted and then click "Activate Automatically."
Enter the serial number in the space provided and click "Generate Activation Key."
Copy the activation key into the activation text box and click "OK" to activate Dragon Naturally Speaking.

No voice recognition


You must have already set up and trained a user with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software prior to transcription. Make sure that the Digital Voice Editor (DVE) software is not opened prior to starting these steps.
Open the Dragon NaturallySpeaking software.
The Dragon Bar window opens. From the Dragon Bar menu, click the Sound button.
From the Sound button, select the Transcribe Recording menu item.
The Transcribe a Recording dialog box opens.
Click the large square button to the left to start the DVE software.
The Digital Voice Editor window opens.
NOTE: If the file you want to transcribe is still on the Integrated Chip (IC) recorder (which will be reflected on the left side in the IC Recorder window), you will need to connect the IC recorder to the computer using the supplied USB cable, or transfer the file to the computer.
Select the item you want to transcribe from the PC window on the right side.
Click on File from the tool bar.
Select the Voice Recognition menu item.
The Converting.. Dialog box opens.
The Transcription Options dialog box opens.
Click the Transcribe button to continue.
The Transcribing window and Dragon Pad window opens.
The text is displayed while the transcription is in process.
NOTE: Once the transcription is complete, it may be necessary to make grammar, word, punctuation, and formatting adjustments.
To save the text file, click on File from the tool bar.
Select the Save As. Menu item.
The Save As dialog box opens.
Browse to the folder location to which you want to save the text file and double-click on that folder.
The folder you chose should now be showing in the Save in drop-down box near the top.
Type in the desired File name in the File name drop-down box towards the bottom and then select the document type.
Click the Save button.
Click the X (close) button in the upper-right corner to close the Dragon Pad window.

There are several "flavours" of DNS 10, and only the Preferred and Professional versions will allow you to submit a pre-recorded sound for recognition (from the Sound menu). If you have a lower version such as the Standard, you will need to upgrade to at least Preferred.
I hope this helps

Olympus DS-150


Judging from Olympus' website the device does appear to be MAC compliant as there are software downloads for the MAC system available for download. As far as voice to text goes, Olympus does not offer that option. Voice to text is done through a company called Nuance with a product called Dragon Naturally Speaking

Recording format


You'll need a software program to convert between audio formats. Here's a link to a free one that you can try:

If it isn't quite what you were looking for there are lots of free converters out there. Just go to www.google.com and search for 'convert wma to wav' and you'll be presented with some choices, most of them free.
