Why you should use Text Replacement commands?
You can use Text Replacement commands for content you re-use frequently in your documents to save time, effort and reduce errors.
A typical use case would be if you write a lot of recurring text paragraphs.
To create new text replacement commands:
- While logged into T-Pro, create a new task
- Click the '3 dots' beside Characters and select 'Text Replacement'
3. Click 'Add New' and you will see a new blank entry created
4. Under the 'Replace' heading, type " Brief-Male-Exam"
Note: You cannot use spaces here so you can use: " Brief-Male-Exam", " BriefMaleExam", " Brief_Male_Exam"
5. Under 'with' heading type:
- On examination, he appeared in good health and spirits. Vital signs as documented. Skin warm and dry and without overt rashes. Neck without JVD. Lungs clear. Heart exam notable for regular rhythm, normal sounds and absence of murmurs, rubs or gallops. Abdomen unremarkable and without evidence of organomegaly, masses, or abdominal aortic enlargement. Extremities non-edematous.
6. Within the T-Pro editror you can now activate your microphone and say 'Insert Male Brief Exam' and you will see the above text populate into the editor
Another use case for Text Replacement is for creating standardised reports
As an example you could create a command called "Template" and define its content as a list like the one shown below. Open your document and say, “insert Template” and T-Pro Speech will insert:
7. If you have a template like the above with various fields/ sections to fill out it is possible to use voice commands to navigate the document
8. Open the 'Text Replacement' editor and click your mouse beside your first heading and click the 'Anchor' symbol (top left) to create an anchor / insertion point
9. Repeat as necessary and click 'Save'
10. From the T-Pro editor, you can now say 'Insert Template' to insert the above template
11. You can then say 'Previous field' or 'Go to next field' to navigate the defined fields
12. It is important to note that the selected field will be marked 'Light Blue'
