 Setting up Denoto / Lexview
 
Denoto is a ProCAT software title that allows you to broadcast a transcription session to other computers.  There are two main methods of accomplishing this; either via the Lexview (the internet), or through Denoto (LAN, WAN, and direct connections).  The following will detail the specifics of each setup.
 
Denoto
(The local setup)
 
Requirements
Certain things are assumed to be setup and working prior to trying to use Denoto.  These things are outlined below.
1.      A valid correctly installed NIC must be present in the transcriberís computer.
2.      TCP/IP must be installed and configured correctly for the NIC referenced in #1.
3.      The transcribers PC must be connected to a valid and working network.  This can be as small as a direct connection between two PCís or as large as a WAN.
4.      Winner v8 or v9 (optimal) must be installed and configured (will be discussed later) correctly on the transcriberís computer.
5.      Windows XP or Windows 2k must be the OS in use by both the transcriberís computer, and the destination computer.
 
Setup

1.      Start the Winner software
2.      Click on the RT/Translation button.

d.      Port No. must be set to 8001.  This number should never be altered for this kind of setup.
5.      Click Ok
6.      Start a RT session.  This step must be done before the Denoto userís try to Connect to the session.
