How to update Voice Notebook

The extension is updated automatically.

When the scripts on the site are updated, you may need to refresh your pages (press F5), because the scripts may be cached on your side.

The integration module is not updated automatically, so you must download the zip archive from /blog/windows-integration/ and replace the old ru-speechpad-host.exe file by the new one.

    How do I access ‘extended features’? I want to transcribe recordings longer than 15 minutes. There is nothing in any of the documentation or posts I read that mentions a time limit.
    A pop-up window said I needed ‘extended features’ if I want to transcribe recordings longer than 15 minutes.

    I created a log-in, but I still get the same pop-up message.

    What else do I need to do?

      When you are signed, click on the link User account (orange link) and you will be go to user profile page. Here you can try these extented features for two days or make order for them.
