Coexistence with SpeechExec, DPM Connect and similar tools

SPS provides several download tools for the Digital Pocket Memo e.g.:

  • SpeechExec Dictate

  • SpeechExec Pro Dictate

  • SpeechExec Pro Transcribe

  • DPM transfer manager

  • DPM Connect for SpeechExec Enterprise

The SpeechLive upload client is the last in line if one of the other download applications or services is running, because they provide more options than the SpeechLive upload client.

If one of these other applications or services is running and a recorder is connected and recognized by the SpeechLive upload client an error message will appear and the upload to SpeechLive is not executed.
