This guide details how to add and associate document templates to dictations.

Document Templates

Adding a Document Template

Document templates can be used to speed up the dictation and document workflow. ODMS Real-time voice recognition supports RTF templates so that it is possible to dictate straight into a custom template and then export to another format e.g. .doc/docx once finished.

Configuring Document Templates

  • Open a word processor such as WordPad and create a new file.
  • Add your text to the template accordingly and save it as an RTF file.
    • Insert [VR_START_POSITION] to the part of your document where the cursor should be when recording begins.
      • NOTE: After inserting the [VR_START_POSITION] tag, insert one or two new lines, this will ensure that the font and style carries on through the document.
