Chapter 5: Advanced Operations
This chapter introduces you to the more advanced functions available on the DPM:
Inserting index marks
Entering user-defined labels
Recording spoken instructions
Transferring data between the DPM and a PC
Mandatory user input
Note: The functions for assigning Keywords and for transferring data are only available when using the DPM
together with SpeechExec Dictate.
Inserting index marks
Index marks can be inserted at any position in the sound file. You can insert an index mark during Playback or
Recording mode. Proceed as follows:
1. Press the DL/VC button for about 0.3 seconds. An index mark will be inserted at the current position in the
sound file. The index mark appears a vertical bar on the display; additionally, the string Index 1 is shown.
2. Continue recording.
3. Press the DL/VC button again to insert another index mark. Another vertical bar appears on the display and
the string Index 2 is shown.
When you fast forward or fast rewind the file, the DPM will interrupt the current action at the insertion point of
an index mark for about 1 second and the DPM will beep. The action is then continued automatically.
In Playback mode, only the index mark string is shown on the display when the playback cursor moves over
an index mark. The DPM will not beep and playback will not be interrupted.
When you are recording in Overwrite mode, index marks will be overwritten without any warning.
You can insert up to 32 index marks into one file.
You cannot insert index marks into dictations which have been finished with EOL.
Deleting index marks
To delete an index mark, do the following:
1. Go to the position of the index mark in the file using the fast forward or fast rewind function. Fast forward or
fast rewind will stop automatically at the insertion point of an index mark and the DPM will beep.
Note: Do not use the playback function because playback does not allow you to position correctly at the
insertion point of an index mark.
2. Press the DEL button for about 2 seconds. The string for the index mark will flash. The index mark will be
deleted after 2 seconds.
