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.

How do i get the recording onto my mac?


if you can connect via USB try that first. Your computer will see it as a storage device and give it a drive letter. you can open it up and selet all the audio files and move them to a folder (you assign) on your computer. If you don't have a way to hook up via USB you can reord the audio file into your computer by hooking up to the earphone jack on the recorder and the to the Pink audio in jack on your mac. open the software that you use for recording audio (garage band for example, or sound recorder). you will have to do this is "real" time however so if you have a lot of recordinng on the device it may take awhile to get the all transferred.

Recorder showing these words in window: ERR wish to restore it to folder index where I have important interviews filed.


The ERR indicator is only active if the DVR detects errors related to decoding of video/audio. These errors are due to discontinuities in the received or recorded file data.

ERR


Solution is very simple - just press DISP/MENU and STOP simultaneously for 2-3 seconds. There will start the FOR blinking on the screen of recorder (ERR will disappear) and the red "eye" on the switchboard. Wait for few minutes and your recorder is back to work :)

Warnning: This means FULL restart and you will lose ALL your recorded data! But I did not find any other solutions...

That device will sometimes allow a clear. This will clear any contained info but should restore function of the device. Turn on the recorder and once you see ERR press and hold stop and erase until the word clear appears. If the word is not up at 15 seconds it will not work, but if clear pops up on the screen just press the REW or FW button to choose yes and then press play to execute. This will clear any contained info but should restore function of the device.
