Question about Philips SpeechMike Pro Plus 5276 Handheld Transcriber / Recorder

3 Answers

Loss of words during reording

This query relates to SpechmikePro 5284 combined barcode scanner and dicatation device. When recording we are losing some words. This seems to be the last one or two words before hitting the stop button, either at the end of the dictation or in the middle whilst 'pausing for thought'. This is happening both in Philips Speechmike Executive program and our own digital dictation system. It is happening for more than one of these devices (so is not just a bad recorder). We had no such problems on earlier (now discontinued) Philips speechmike devices. Any ideas much appreciated!

Thanks

    I have received one suggestion but this isnt really a practical solution in a multi-user environment dictating medical reports. Any other ideas?

There are two things to check for here:
1) What is the trigger settting for turning on the mic? In other words, most of these devices shut the mic off when there is no input to prevent the automatic gain from turning up too much resulting in loud initial recording. There should be a threshold setting to allow for "soft" voices to trigger the "switch" to turn on the mic.
2) What is the response time of the above mentioned trigger? This is usually something that can be custom set depending upon the environment.

I'm not familiar with your specific gear, but the above items are usually available as user controls.

Keep us posted.

I suggest that you allow little more silent time before pressing the pause or stop. also when you start regording again let it go for a second or two and then start talking.

you may also tap the mic pefore starting speaking, performers always tap the mic pefore starting to make sure its working.

Tip

Five successful mways to use pda barcode scanner


The know-how about certain important issues considerably cuts down the breakdown periods that are usually a result of mishandling of the equipments by the first-time users. Also, highest quality barcode scanners users require the best knowledge of the basic issues and facts associated with proper handling, correction or maintenance plus expansions. The understanding about a number of important issues considerably reduces the breakdown periods that are usually due to mishandling of the equipments by first-time users. Even though the majority of the companies offer onsite as well as online service assistance, you'll be able to always hunt for outside support. At times they are utilized in the critical places where it is not possible for you to pay for even the short time breakdowns of the scanning services. Below are the 5 ways that'll help you in being more comfy with these scanning devices.
1: Knowledge of the connectivity
Until a few years back, the PDA scanners only communicated with the other PDAs or PCs via the infrared or the serial COM port. The 90's decade brought with it the wireless technology though it became widely used at the beginning of 2000s with the introduction of notebooks and significant decrease in their costs. With the increasing use of Bluetooth among the users of cell phone, transferring of coded info too became simple, convenient and practical. Bluetooth connectivity provides more extensive applications of these scanners.
As PDA scanners are like a mix of PC and phone, so both Wi-Fi features and Bluetooth have been included in the majority of the scanners. In the era where everything is networked for increasing the level of information sharing among employees as well as numerous divisions, it doesn't appear practical for a consumer to come over one more computer right after scanning, in order to read interpreted info.
Additionally, there are a number of other things you'll want to know regarding PDA functioning besides Bluetooth as well as connecting features like Wifi. Indeed, there're. Battery life requires a comprehensive thought since these scanners use up significantly more power due to that battery particularly old one may require regular charging. The palm barcode scanners tend to be more appealing as these take not as much power. But, both scanners can move the data over the wireless network to the host Computer for fast and dependable inventory management.
Although obtaining these scanners having greatest connectivity features as well as facilities might cost a bit more however it repays in long term. For instance, Motorola MC70 scanner is best for a myriad of scanning and connectivity needs. What's more, you are able to make calls with the same scanner. Training for using the devices is given by suppliers at quite affordable rates and also the arrangements could be made for getting the training classes at your end.
2: Knowing the interface
Despite the fact that Pocket barcode scanners function in a different way than from the Palm barcode scanners, some major differences and also similarities are present, that allow for even simpler management of the both kinds of scanners.
Among the most important but usually ignored issues with using the barcode scanner is knowing how PDA scanner works. This becomes very important once we use Pocket Computer and the Palm scanners. Pocket barcode PC scanner combines well with the Word as well as Excel; it's a very important particularly in case you require manually maintaining the inventory stock and transferring the info to a Computer later on. Small resolution of Pocket Computer might cause couple of problems at the time a document is edited but a majority of Pocket PCs support a resolution greater than 320×320.
At the time of deciding on a PDA barcode scanner, consider functionality, compatibility, as well as the problems that will probably be brought up during the implementation of the PDA scanner in the organization. The pocket scanners integrate much better with additional applications, even though kinds of user input are very popular among the Pocket PC.
You should know various sorts of inputs accessible for barcode scanners. Most Palm as well as Pocket PC barcode scanners includes writing on the PDA facility making use of stylus just as you write over the paper using pen. But, PDA barcode scanners need calibration to work for users. It might be an issue if several people use the same type of scanner. For the majority of PDA scanner models, the only option is to use onscreen keyboard unless of course user possesses a built-in keypad.
3: Scanning Methods
Itemized info shouldn't be changed however inventory ID may require changes if it's read improperly by the PDA barcode scanner. The scanning method can ne standardized by including a guide on related fields for editing. Additional information can also be included. Finding out your scanning procedure of these imagers being utilized can also be extremely important. The software might be customized to obtain the highest outputs.
4: Knowing the Barcode
Knowing the kind of barcode that is being scanned not just assists users in scanning the right barcodes but it also enables to choose the best PDA barcode scanner. Several PDA scanners scan with the CCD technology which makes use of a camera for capturing the image. The software uses this image for drawing the info in the language which might be understood by users. This permits flexibility in contrast to the laser barcode scanners that scan only in the linear fashion. Utilizing PDA CCD barcode scanners, 2D barcodes as well as conventional 1D linear barcodes could be scanned having the same perfection. Therefore, always purchase the right scanner with respect to barcode's features.
5: Coping with User Errors
The best or even the priciest scanners could be erroneous; so it's required to understand the way to cope with these issues because changing a scanner isn't practical nor is it possible. The Laser PDA scanners are faster than the CCD scanners. Due to the progress in technology, the gap is rapidly thinning. At times, barcodes tend to be unreadable because of damage which usually occurs as a result of excessive heat or light. Sometimes as time passes, the barcodes begin working again. In case you sense additional gravity of the problem, don't fiddle a lot with the barcode, alternatively call experts for assistance.
Growing use of the barcode scanners for different innovative purposes has helped in revolutionizing a lot of business sectors. Cost effectiveness, wide compatibility, time saver, info security, improve the look of the scanners plus user friendly features make barcodes scanners essential part of the businesses, be it large or small. The metrologic ms7120 scanner is an outstanding match of practical aspects and technical excellence.

In order to increase the lifespan of the device as well as provide a power-saving feature, a number of scanners, example of which might be usb barcode scanner, which have a main power switch or an option for it to go into sleep mode.

We use similar products in our warehouse as well, and usually there is a config file within these that the codes are programmed in, and shouldn't be deleted if it loses power. However, I would contact the original manufacturer for complete details on this item.

Scanner reads some barcodes (black and white, larger barcodes), but not smaller barcodes that are black w/gold background.


Acutually, some kind of conbinations of bar color and background color will prevent barcode readers from accurate scanning. So I think you should check whether your color combination is feasible first.
