The vast majority of the Quicktate files will be typed into the online text box.
In the rare case you receive a file that's longer than a few minutes, it would probably be safer to download the audio file to your desktop and listen to it using your favorite audio player. Most typists like Express Scribe because it allows you to slow down, speed up, pause, and use a foot pedal. When you download a file, the Count-down timer STOPS.
Please remember to type Quicktate files into Notepad, NOT Microsoft Word. Be sure your document is typed into paragraphs.
When you are done typing the file, log back into your Quicktate account and click "TRANSCRIBE" and the empty text box for your file will appear.
Paste your formatted file in the text box and submit it. After you see the word count in your profile, delete the audio and the transcript from your computer.
