Setting change needs to be made on the Remote Desktop icon
If you are using Talkatoo over a remote connection, and are seeing letters not being capitalized, and it still works as expected on your local computer, that means you need to change the Windows Key Combinations setting for your remote connection. Below is an excerpt from the article on setting up your environment to use Talkatoo over Remote Desktop. See that article for more information.
- Right click on the Remote Desktop icon on your local computer that you use to connect.
- Click Edit.
- Click the Local Resources tab at the top.
- Under Keyboard - Apply Windows Key Combinations, click the dropdown and change it to On this computer
- Click General
- Click Save - This is so that it will save these settings for next time, as opposed to being one time only.
- Reconnect and now you're ready to dictate from this computer.
Unable to Save
In some cases you may not be able to save this here because it's trying to save in the 'Public' or shared Desktop folder, and you do not have permission to overwrite the file. If this happens:
- Click Save As instead
- Click Desktop on the left side.
- Change the name of the file by adding Talkatoo or some other word, as both icons will still show up, but it's important you use this new one.
If in the future, the buttons aren't working, or it types out '+' (plus sign) but it still works as expected locally, there are two things to check.
- Ensure that you are using the correct Remote Desktop icon, and if you are, repeat these steps. It's possible, especially with a company owned computer, they may have updated the connection and overwritten your changes.
- Ensure that the SpeechMike is in the correct mode
This is the only known reason that Talkatoo will not capitalize letters. If you experience this issue, but are not using Remote Desktop, or the steps above don't help, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
