At the TRAIN Stop…

November 29, 2012

As you may know, the new Windows 8 contains major changes in the user interface. A very helpful tutorial for anyone who is starting to use Windows 8 can be found here.

For more helpful YouTube videos, including realtime computer setup videos, please visit NCRA’s YouTube page.

Realtime Tech Tips from TRAIN:

  1. Always use a power strip that has an illuminated or lighted on/off switch.  That way you can be sure you are actually getting power from the plug.
  2. Create a “cheat sheet” of realtime troubleshooting tips, laminate it, and keep it in your computer case.  NCRA also publishes a great resource in the “Realtime Troubleshooting Pocket Guide.”  You can find this at the NCRA Store.
  3. Bring your sense of humor.  Don’t be so hard on yourself when things translate funny.  Remember, it’s called a “draft” transcript – counsel does not expect a perfect transcript.  Pack your lunch and edit during your lunch break and fix all those funny translates (or untranslates).
