Modifying Application Settings for All Users

If you checked off Modify the application's settings for all users during a custom installation, the Options dialog box opens immediately after the installation completes.

In the Options dialog box, you see several tabs you can use to set up various aspects of dictating with the product:

Correction Hot keys Data
Commands Text-to-speech  
View Miscellaneous  

For more information on each tab, see the online Help. If you have the Medical Edition, you also see tabs for PowerMic I, PowerMic II, and the Dictation Box.

Modifying Administrative Settings

If you checked Modify the administrative settings during a custom installation, the Administrative Settings dialog box opens immediately after the installation ends.

In the Administrative Settings dialog box, you see these tabs:

  • Roaming—To set up roaming users.
  • Miscellaneous—To create backup/distribution directories and control who can modify custom commands.
