Please sign in to a Voice Client then tap here / Linked to: [Computer Name]

If the Wireless Microphone is not linked to any voice client the screen will say, "Please sign in to a Voice client then tap here."

To link to a voice client:

  1. Tap Please sign in to a Voice Client then tap here at the bottom of the dictation screen. (You must be already signed in to a dictation client on your computer!)
  2. On the Select Voice Client screen of the Wireless Microphone tap the name of the computer that is running the dictation client to put a checkmark beside it.
  3. Tap the Apply button at the bottom of the screen.
  4. The dictation screen on the Wireless Mic now displays the words "Linked to:" followed by the name of the computer on which you're currently running nVoq.Voice. This is the computer on which dictation text will paste, and where shortcuts will run.

To switch to using the Wireless Microphone on a different computer/voice client:

  1. Tap the computer name to open a list of all computers on which you are currently signed in to a voice client that is configured to use the Wireless Microphone as the recording device.

  3. Tap OK.

  4. The name next to the Linked to: field changes to the voice client/computer to which you are now connected.

You can dictate to a voice client in a different location, you would just need to be signed in on the voice client with the same username and password that you used to sign in on the Wireless Microphone app. For example, you can run the voice client on your computer at your office, then connect to it on the Wireless Mic app from home, and your dictation transcripts will appear on your office computer.
