INFO: InScribe Software Conflicts

[Archived] – Last Updated:

There are a few programs that may cause InScribe to behave improperly. The most commonly reported problems are a failure to respond to key entry or the entry of the wrong characters.

The programs known to cause problems include:

  • ActiveWords
  • ReflexVision
  • TopDesk

ActiveWords Work Around

  1. Open the Options dialog for ActiveWords, either from the MonitorBar menu or the tray icon menu.
  2. Go to the Operating Mode tab and push the Advanced button.
  3. Check the Disable ActiveWord Buffer box.
  4. Click OK to close the Advanced Operating Mode dialog and OK again to close the ActiveWords Options dialog.

Also, in the presence of the MonitorBar, the current application may lose focus when moving or resizing the InScribe window, or when activating InScribe. Hide the MonitorBar if possible to avoid this inconvenience.
