6 6 Overview of escription Dictation Workflow The workflow of a dictation in escription: IntelliScript voice capture AutoScript speech recognition EditScript Server dictation workflow management EditScript MT dictation transcription and editing NetScript/EditScript Online web access to dictations and reports Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
7 Overview of escription 7 What is IntelliScript? IntelliScript is the server located at your institution that records high-quality, digital audio dictations. Clinicians call IntelliScript and enter their ID and identifying information such as patient medical record number and work type. Using IntelliScript, clinicians dictate, review, edit or add to their dictations. What is AutoScript? AutoScript is the program that performs speech recognition. AutoScript learns how a physician speaks, develops a voice model and creates a voice recognized draft of each dictation. What is the EditScript Server? The EditScript Server manages the workflow of a dictation as it transitions from an audio recording, to a draft document, to a completed and distributed document. What is EditScript MT? EditScript MT is the software that MTs use to transcribe or edit reports. Connected to the internet, MTs download dictations, edit or transcribe them, and upload completed work. EditScript MT is integrated with Microsoft Word and uses many familiar word shortcuts.
8 8 Overview of escription The Voice Model Voice models process what the clinician says to produce a draft document. Here is how it works: The clinician dictates and the MT transcribes. AutoScript analyzes the dictation and compares it to the final written report. After approximately 1.5 hours of audio and 50 reports, AutoScript develops a voice model per clinician and work type. Based on each voice model, voice recognized drafts are produced. Voice recognized drafts are not perfect and always need some editing. Voice models recognize sounds and strings them into words and phrases. Using complex formulas, they put these words into context and format the report based on the requirements of your institution. This is done by work type since each work type has its own terminology and possibly its own report format. AutoScript does not produce a draft of a report if the quality is such that it would be faster to transcribe the entire report. The goal is to make the job of the MT easier. Examples of How the Voice Model Learns You may work with a cardiologist who uses the phrase 'no rhythm' for 'normal rhythm'. The MTs at your institution know this cardiologist and always change the phrase to 'normal rhythm'. AutoScript learns that 'no rhythm' should be recognized as 'normal rhythm' for that particular cardiologist. Soon the voice recognized drafts have the correct phrase, thereby eliminating the need to edit that phrase in the draft. Dr. Smith may use the word 'basically' repeatedly and inappropriately throughout his dictations. The MTs at your institution consistently omit 'basically' from Dr. Smith's reports. In time, AutoScript learns to eliminate the word 'basically' from Dr. Smith's reports even though he continues to use the word in his reports. Some clinicians may not be voice recognized. Clinicians who are not organized speakers or who speak inconsistently may never be recognized. As such, their reports will require standard transcription. If a clinician is an organized speaker and has a thick accent or does not speak clearly, he may be voice recognized. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
9 Overview of escription 9 Importance of the Style Guide Consistency in typing and editing is important to the development of voice models since AutoScript analyzes the dictation and compares it to the final written report. In order to ensure consistency, each institution creates a Style Guide that defines what the final reports will look like. Style Guide Requirements Style Guide requirements can include: how dates are formatted (e.g. 03/03/2008 or March 3, 2008) when Arabic or Roman numerals (e.g. Arabic numerals for 'types' of conditions and Roman numerals for 'grades' of conditions) how many dashes and spaces are used in specific situations (e.g. hyphens without a space between two numeric values, 3-4 months) These elements and many others are defined and communicated to you so that all MTs who work in your system type and edit reports consistently. Recognition improves when the clinician speaks consistently, and MTs type and edit the spoken word consistently.
10 10 Overview of escription Exercise 1 - Summary Questions Please circle T for True or F for False for each of the following summary questions. 1. There is no need to follow the Style Guide for consistency in formatting. T/F 2. Clinicians are voice recognized by work type. T/F 3. It takes at least 6 hours of dictation before a clinician is recognized e.g. an editable draft is created. T/F 4. The speed at which dictations are downloaded is related to the speed of the MTs internet connection. T/F 5. The MT 'trains' the Voice Model to recognize a clinician and work type which is why consistency while transcribing and editing is so important. T/F Confidential Information Nuance.

20 20 Getting Started in EditScript MT The Header Patient Demographics Your first responsibility when typing or editing a dictation is to verify the patient information. In EditScript MT this information resides at the top of the screen in the Header. Many of the field names in the Header have a letter that is underlined. Press the ALT key and the underlined letter to jump the cursor to that field. The Header pre-populates based on the information the clinician provides when she dictates the report. The actual fields in the Header vary depending on your institution. All Headers have patient name, medical record number (MRN), dictation information and a Visit Grid. The Visit Grid automatically shows recent visits associated with the patient's MRN. Patient Information Dictation Information Visit Grid Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
21 Getting Started in EditScript MT 21 Editing the Header ALT+E 1. To access the Header for editing, press ALT+E. This places the cursor in the Patient Last Name field (or places the cursor in the last header field that it was in.) The Status bar at the bottom of the screen identifies ALT+E as the toggle between the Header and the Work area where the dictation text is displayed. The system defaults a check mark next to the most recent visit for the patient named. If this is not the correct visit and the visit is shown in the Visit Grid, you must select the correct visit. 2. To select the correct visit, press ALT+V to jump the cursor to the Visit Grid. 3. Press the Up and Down Arrow keys to select the correct visit based on the information provided by the clinician. 4. Press the Spacebar to put a checkmark next to the highlighted visit. To check the T for a temporary visit in the visit grid, press CTRL+T. 5. Press ALT+O to Save (Confirm).
22 22 Getting Started in EditScript MT Searching for Patient Information In some instances, you must search for the correct patient and visit. In this example, the search for the correct patient is by Patient Last Name. If you change the patient name or MRN by simply typing in either field, the system will pend the dictation. 1. With the cursor in the Header, press ALT+P to jump the cursor to the Patient Last Name field. EditScript MT automatically copies the search value from the field in which you cursor is located when you press ALT+S. For example, if your cursor is in the MRN field in the Header, the MRN is copied to the search screen. 2. Press ALT+S to search. This opens the search screen. EditScript MT copies the last name from the header onto the search screen. If the Patient Name and MRN fields are yellow at your institution, typing in either field will automatically take you to the search screen. Start to enter either the Patient Name or MRN and the application automatically moves your cursor to that field on the search screen. 3. Type over the highlighted default value to enter a new Patient Last Name. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
23 Getting Started in EditScript MT Press ALT+S to perform the search based on the new Patient Last Name. The Search Results appear. The fields in the Search Results can be sorted by clicking CTRL+ the number at the top of the field. The Status bar also explains this. 5. Press the Up and Down Arrow keys to select the correct result.
24 24 Getting Started in EditScript MT 6. Press the Spacebar to put a checkmark next to the correct result. 7. Press ALT+O for OK and to return to the Header. 8. Press ALT+O again to Confirm changes.

Any fields in the Header that have a Drop-down menu can be changed in the same way (Steps 2-4). When you are finished making changes to the Header, type ALT+O to confirm or save changes. This moves your text cursor back to the body of the report
26 26 Getting Started in EditScript MT Changing Work Type At many institutions, the work type field represents the different document types. Different document types may require different information in the Header. When you change the work type field, you must next press ALT+O to confirm or save that change. The saved change in work type may prompt a change in the header, requiring you to enter additional information. Like other fields in the Header that have drop-down menus, you can change the work type by typing the first couple of letters of the new work type and selecting it from the menu. 1. Type rad to change the work type to radiology. 2. Press Enter when the required work type is highlighted. 3. Type ALT+O to Confirm changes. This may prompt the following message: 4. Press Enter or type ALT+Y for Yes. Make any necessary changes in the new Header and press ALT+O to save. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
27 Getting Started in EditScript MT 27 Modifying Date Fields The Header may include date fields such as Service Date and Procedure Date. The date fields are divided into 3 sections, month/day/year. Use your Arrow keys right (or left) to move from one section to the next in order to modify the date. Use your Up and Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease the number.

Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
39 Getting Started in EditScript MT 39 Taking a Break and Logging Out ALT+SHIFT+U At the end of the day or prior to taking a break, you want to upload the completed dictation without downloading another dictation onto your screen. As long as there is an open dictation on your screen, the lines per hour clock continues to track your time for that open dictation. ALT+SHIFT+U uploads the current dictation, but does not download another onto your screen. However, dictations remain in your queue until you exit from EditScript MT. Use ALT+SHIFT+U if you have completed a dictation and want to take a short break or end work for the day (prior to logging out of EditScript MT). ALT+SHIFT+U and EXIT ALT+SHIFT+U uploads your completed dictation without putting another dictation from your queue onto your screen. However, dictations remain in your queue and other MTs do not have direct access to those dictations. To release those dictations from the queue, you must log out of EditScript MT. To log out of EditScript MT, click the X in the upper right corner of your screen. This removes all dictations from your queue, puts them back in the general queue and makes them available to other MTs. Always complete the dictation that is downloaded on your screen prior to taking a break or logging out for the day.
40 Using Word Tools 40 Exercise 6 Taking a Break and Logging Out 1. Upload the dictation that is currently on your desktop but do not download another. 2. Log out of EditScript MT. 3. Give yourself a break!
41 Using Word Tools 41 3: Using Word Tools Objectives Upon completion of this module, you will be able to: Explain how Word Shortcuts Work Use Essential Word Shortcuts Set up AutoCorrect
42 42 Using Word Tools How Word Shortcuts Work Shortcuts are a set of keys which, when used in combination, perform common tasks that otherwise would require you to use the mouse or to use multiple key strokes. Since EditScript MT is integrated with Microsoft Word, shortcuts that you use in Word, can also be used in EditScript MT. Shortcuts allow you to navigate quickly through dictations. Shortcuts also allow you to keep your fingers on the home keys of the keyboard, thereby reducing physical stress. Best practice is to transcribe and edit mouse free by using keyboard shortcuts. The most common keys that Word uses as shortcuts are SHIFT and CTRL. These keys change or enhance the actions of other keys. When using SHIFT or CTRL, hold the key down and press the other key that is required to complete the shortcut. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
43 Using Word Tools 43 Exercise 7 Word Shortcut Key Tutorial There is a Word file named wskt.doc on your computer desktop. 1. Open the file and perform the actions described. 2. Close the file when finished and return to EditScript MT.
44 44 Using Word Tools Essential Word Shortcut Keys Word has numerous shortcuts to make your work easier. Focus on one at a time until it becomes routine, then learn another. Below are the Word shortcuts that are most helpful: CTRL + CTRL + Jumps word-by-word to the left Jumps word-by-word to the right CTRL + CTRL + Jumps by paragraph up Jumps by paragraph down CTRL + SHIFT + CTRL + SHIFT + Highlights text, word-by-word, to the left Highlights text, word-by-word, to the right CTRL + SHIFT + CTRL + SHIFT + Highlights and jumps by paragraph up Highlights and jumps by paragraph down CTRL + BACKSPACE Deletes word-by-word to the left CTRL + DELETE Deletes word-by-word to the right HOME END Jumps to the beginning of the line Jumps to the end of the line CTRL + C CTRL + X CTRL + V Copies the selected text to the clipboard Cuts the selected text and holds it on the clipboard Pastes the text from the clipboard to the current cursor position CTRL + Z SHIFT + F3 CTRL + F Undoes the last change made Changes case from Title, to UPPER, to lower Opens Find and Replace dialog Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
45 Using Word Tools 45 Using AutoCorrect AutoCorrect is Microsoft Word's built in utility that automatically recognizes misspellings or abbreviations and corrects them as you type. It allows you to type just a few characters instead of the full word. For example, you can type tp for the patient. This tool is a tremendous time-saver. In this example, htn is added for hypertension. 1. Click the Tools item in the menu bar (or press ALT+ T, then A and skip the next step) 2. Click AutoCorrect on the dropdown menu. 3. The AutoCorrect dialog box opens. Replace box With box 4. In the Replace box, type htn. 5. Tab to the With box, and type hypertension. 6. Press ENTER to accept this entry and to close AutoCorrect (or press ALT+A to select the Add button), and then press ALT+O to click OK. 7. Test your AutoCorrect entry. In an open Word document, type the abbreviation, htn. The first space bar, punctuation or return that you press after that last letter, "n", causes the abbreviation to expand to hypertension.

47 Editing in EditScript MT 47 4: Editing in EditScript MT Objectives Upon completion of this module, you will be able to: Explain and Use Multiple Cursors Explain and Use EditScript MT Punctuation Commands
48 48 Editing in EditScript MT Multiple Cursors As voice models are developed, the system generates voice recognized drafts of reports that require editing. To make editing easier, EditScript MT has a voice cursor that follows the dictation and highlights each word as the clinician speaks it. The voice cursor acts as a visual queue of what you are listening to in the report. EditScript MT has two cursors: Text cursor - MS Word's cursor that indicates where you are typing Voice cursor red box, in the editable draft, that moves with the dictation that you are listening to; aids in locating of errors The two cursors can work together to locate errors and to make editing easier and faster. Text Cursor Voice Cursor You do not have to follow the speech with the text cursor or arrow key. The voice cursor does that for you. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
49 Editing in EditScript MT 49 Using ALT+K When editing, the goal is to move the text cursor to the error as quickly as possible in order to make the correction. Having the voice cursor makes it easier to visually locate the error. ALT+K jumps your text cursor to the voice cursor for faster editing. ALT+K moves the text cursor to the word currently outlined by the red voice cursor and highlights that word. When you hear a mistake in the text, press ALT+K to jump the text cursor to the word that is marked by the voice cursor.. ALT+K If you react late and the voice cursor is past the incorrect word, you can CTRL+Left Arrow to get back to the incorrect word. ALT+K is one of many commands used to navigate quickly through a report. It is often used with CTRL+Arrow if you miss the targeted word using ALT+K.
50 50 Editing in EditScript MT Exercise 9 Jumping to a Word using ALT+K In this draft dictation the drugs, Ativan, Celexa and Zoloft, are incorrect. For this exercise, use ALT+K to jump the text cursor to the voice cursor when you locate one of the incorrect drug names. Do not correct the misspellings. The goal of this exercise is for you to practice jumping your text cursor to your voice cursor using ALT+K. 1. Listen to the dictation 2. Stop the dictation by removing your foot from the foot pedal when you hear the name of one of the drugs that is misspelled. 3. Press ALT+K to move the text cursor to the voice cursor since the voice cursor is 'marking' the location of the error. 4. Do not correct the error. 5. Restart the dictation and continue to stop at each misspelling and to press ALT+K. 6. Go through the entire dictation. 7. When finished, remove your headset and wait for further instructions. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
51 Editing in EditScript MT 51 Exercise 10 Fixing a Word using ALT+K Use the new dictation you just downloaded. It is similar to the previous one where Ativan, Celexa and Zoloft are misspelled. In this exercise, fix the errors. 1. Listen to the dictation. 2. Stop the dictation by removing your foot from the foot pedal when you hear the name of one of the drugs that is incorrect. 3. Press ALT+K to move the text cursor to the voice cursor. 4. Fix the error. 5. Restart the dictation and continue to stop at each error, press ALT+K and fix the error. 6. When finished, remove your headset and wait for further instructions.
52 52 Editing in EditScript MT Using ALT+SHIFT+K ALT+SHIFT+K is the opposite of ALT+K. It moves the red voice cursor to the position of the text cursor. This is useful to rewind or fast forward to a specific word. Perhaps a clinician speaks a word that you cannot understand, but later says something that clarifies that word. Instead of rewinding the dictation with your foot pedal, you can move your text cursor to the word and press ALT+SHIFT+K. This moves the voice cursor to the location of the text cursor. Since the voice cursor is tied to the dictation audio, the audio begins at the location of the voice cursor.

(period) When adding a period at the end of a sentence, you normally type the period, press the space bar twice and capitalize the first letter of the next word. The EditScript MT command, ALT+. (period), inserts a period, ensures two spaces and capitalizes the first letter of the first word in the next sentence. This saves you many key strokes. In order to use ALT+. (period) properly, the text cursor must be: in the space between the two sentences OR in the last word of the first sentence Using ALT+K with ALT+. (period) When you use ALT+K with ALT+. (period), try to stop the voice cursor at the beginning of the second sentence. Press ALT+K when the voice cursor is on the first word of the second sentence. This highlights that first word; the text cursor appears to land in the space between the two sentences. Press ALT+. (period) to place the period at the end of that last word of the first sentence.

59 EditScript Tools 59 5: EditScript Tools Objectives Upon completion of this module, you will be able to: Pend Dictations Insert and Use Templates Split Dictations
60 60 EditScript Tools Pending Dictations ALT+Y There are times when you have questions about a dictation that do not allow you to complete it prior to uploading it. In such cases you will pend that dictation with a note so that an administrator can review it and complete it. A pending note in EditScript MT tags the dictation as incomplete upon upload. There are many situations that will require you to add a note to pend a dictation. Reasons for pending will be communicated to you prior to Go-Live. In some situations EditScript MT automatically pends dictations. Automatic pends can occur because of a temporary MRN, no Date of Service or more than a specified number of blanks. The reasons for automatically pending dictations are defined by your institution. In most cases a blank in EditScript MT is defined as 5 underscores. 1. Press ALT+Y to open the Pending note dialog box. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
61 EditScript Tools Enter a note. Your institution may have a specific naming convention and instructions about how notes should be written. 3. Press ALT+O for OK to save the note. You can open and modify the pending note as often as needed until you upload the dictation.
62 62 EditScript Tools 4. To clear or remove the pending note prior to uploading the dictation, press ALT+Y to open the note. 5. Press ALT+R for Clear Pending Note. 6. Press ALT+O for OK. 7. Press ALT+N for No. The dictation is no longer pended. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.

Listen to and edit the dictation as best as you can. 2. Pend the dictation to indicate the 'problem'. 3. When finished, remove your headset and wait for further instructions..
64 64 EditScript Tools Inserting and Using Templates ALT+M Some clinicians use standard text for a particular procedure. Rather than dictating the same information in every report, the clinician may call for a 'normal'. These normals or templates are available to you in EditScript MT. When the clinician calls for a 'normal', position your text cursor at the point in the report where you want to insert the template. That is where the template will paste. 1. Press ALT+M to open the Choose Template for Insertion dialog box. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
65 EditScript Tools In the Find Tag in Current Table field, type the name of the required template. If your text cursor does not land in the Find Tag in Current Table field, press the Tab key, then type the template name. 3. Arrow down to highlight the correct Template. Depending on how your institution is configured, EditScript MT can preselect one or many templates based on Business Entity, Dictating Clinician and/or Work Type.
66 66 EditScript Tools To preview the highlighted template, press ALT+P To insert the highlighted template, press ALT+I To cancel and return to the dictation, press ALT+L To navigate mouse-free through the template chooser, use ALT+the underlined letter. The status line also shows these keyboard commands. 4. Press ALT+P to preview the template. 5. If this is the correct template, press ALT+I to insert this template into the dictation at the location of your cursor. If you want to choose another template, press ALT+T, to return to the list of templates. If you want to return to the dictation without inserting a template, press ALT+L to cancel. You can copy and paste part of the template into the report.

Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
67 EditScript Tools 67 ALT+R Some templates have double question marks to represent blanks. After you have inserted the template into the report, type ALT+R to jump from?? to??. This jump and replace code helps you navigate faster and ensures that you do not miss a value that must be added. The two question marks?? can also be used to mark a section of the dictation that you need to return to prior to uploading the dictation. It can be used with blanks (?? ).
68 68 EditScript Tools Exercise 16 Insert a Template In this dictation, the clinician asks that his 'normal' be inserted. The procedure started with the right ear; the required template contains??. 1. Transcribe the dictation. 2. Insert the 'normal'. 3. Press ALT+R to replace the question marks (??). 4. When finished, remove your headset and wait for further instructions. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
69 EditScript Tools 69 Splitting Dictations Some providers inadvertently record multiple dictations on one voice file. EditScript MT makes it easy to split that one file into multiple documents and to change the patient information accordingly. Each new document is assigned a unique dictation ID and the entire voice file is copied to each new dictation. As you listen to a dictation, split the dictation when you hear information for a new patient by clicking the Split Dictation button on the EditScript toolbar Your institution may have configured a keyboard command, ALT+SHIFT+6, for splitting dictations. For editable drafts, your cursor must be at end of the first report. EditScript MT highlights all of the text above the text cursor. This is the report that will be split and uploaded. For standard transcriptions, EditScript MT uploads the entire document that you have typed thusfar. 1. For a draft, place your text cursor at the end of the first report. 2. Click the Split Dictation button, 3. Press Enter (yes) to split the dictation and upload it. 4. All of the text below the split remains as part of the next dictation. The Header and CC information must be edited for each dictation. When you are on the last report in the file, you must listen to the entire voice file or the dictation will pend.
70 70 EditScript Tools Exercise 17 Split a Dictation This voice file contains three dictations. The three patients are: Bart Simpson Yogi Bear Betty Boop Edit and add pending notes as needed. 1. Edit the Headers and reports as needed. 2. Place your text cursor at the end of the first dictation. 3. Click the Split Dictation button 4. Edit the second dictation as needed. 5. Place your text cursor in the correct position and split the second dictation from the file. 6. Edit the third dictation, upload it and do not get a new dictation. 7. Remove your headset and wait for further instructions. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
71 Managing Your Workflow 71 6: Managing Your Workflow Objectives Upon completion of this module, you will be able to: Explain and Use Workflow Best Practices Handle Priority Dictations View Metrics Search for Dictations Answer Review Questions
72 72 Managing Your Workflow Workflow Best Practices How EditScript MT Manages Dictations When you download your first dictation, one dictation is sent to your screen and several others are sent to your work queue. As you complete one dictation and upload it, a dictation from your work queue is sent to your screen. At the same time, another dictation from the general queue is automatically sent to your work queue. These dictations are Downloaded and Checked Out to you until either you finish them or you release them back to the general queue by exiting EditScript MT. If a dictation is opened on your screen, then the lines per hour clock is running. Best practice is to always finish the current dictation prior to taking a break. Then upload that dictation without downloading another. Viewing Dictations in Your Work Queue In order to determine when to take a break or how to plan your time, you need information about the next dictation in your queue. You can view the dictations in your work queue by typing ALT+Q. Best practice is to view your work queue when you do not have a dictation on your screen. Confidential Information Nuance. All Rights Reserved.
73 Managing Your Workflow Press ALT+Q to open the Dictations in the Queue dialog. Speaker Duration Standard or Edited Transcription Priority The work queue shows the dictations that are Downloaded and Checked Out to you. The order in which you will receive those dictations is based on the priority number. In the work queue, you see: Speaker and dictation duration Status: Standard Transcription or Edited Transcription Priority This information helps you make an informed decision about whether to download the next dictation or not. 2. Press ALT+E to close the Dictations in the Queue dialog. Pausing a Dictation If you are in the middle of the dictation and need to take a quick break, you can use the Pause feature. This stops the lines per hour meter on the dictation that you are working on and holds your position until you resume editing. During the pause, the dictation is locked onto your screen and the dictations in your work queue are still Downloaded and Checked Out to you. Pause EditScript and Transcription Timer is located in the Utilities drop-down menu.
74 74 Managing Your Workflow 1. Click the Utilities drop-down menu. 2. Click Pause EditScript and Transcription Timer. This opens a dialog box that tracks how long the dictation is paused. 3. When you are ready to return to the dictation, press ALT+R to Resume Editing. Taking Longer Breaks or Ending Your Work Day When taking a longer break or ending your day, finish the dictation, upload it without downloading another and exit EditScript MT. The dictations in your work queue will be sent back to the general queue and made available to other MTs. Always exit EditScript MT at the end of your work day. Emergencies In an emergency, you may not have time to finish a dictation and follow work flow best practices. In an emergency, do not leave the dictation on your screen.

75 Managing Your Workflow 75 The quickest way to exit the application is by clicking the X on the upper right corner of your screen. You will lose the work on the current dictation and the dictations in your queue are sent back to the general queue of dictations. When you exit EditScript MT without completing and uploading the current dictation, the following dialog box appears: If it is an emergency, click Yes. If you upload an incomplete dictation prior to exiting EditScript MT, the dictation will automatically pend. High Priority Dictations If you receive a 'stat' or high priority dictation, you will see the following message: Yes immediately accepts the high priority dictation. EditScript MT saves the current dictation that you are working on, and returns it after you have completed and uploaded the priority dictation. No holds the priority dictation. After you complete and upload the current dictation that you are working on, EditScript MT opens the priority dictation.
