I have a new iPad and i would like to install the best transcription software we can find on the market. I found and heard that Dragon Professional Transcriptions Software is one of the best.

i tried to google and find the number of the Nuance technical support to ask them if where i can find the app to install in my ipad but not luck, no phone number. can someone find a number for the nuance technical support please ?

if a phone doesn't exist, can someone send me a screen shot of the app i should download to have this software on my ipad.

Of do you recommend an equal good product that i can install  in my pad please.

I would like to dictate an email or a word document and have the software typing for me.

IPad (3) IOS 13.3.1

My Word Documents downloaded to my IPad from  OneDrive app are protected and cannot be edited. A message tells me they are of an older Word format which needs to be upgraded and there is an upgrade button which I press. A new version of the file appears but it too is protected. I thought of uninstalling and reinstalling Word but am afraid I will be asked for money. Is there any way around this

AUKEY Model CB-C-71 does not transfer data to iPad 11" (2018) OS 13.3.1

AUKEY Model CB-C-71 does not transfer data from AUKEY Model CB-C-71 SD Card slot to iPad Pro.
AUKEY activity light is green and unit is warm to touch.

Using Mac Mini late 2018 & inland SD Card Reader, photos read/display OK.

I am new to Office 365, I set up a one month trial of E3 and connected my private domain to it. Mailflow is fine on my two Windows 10 PCs and Samsung Galaxy 9 and iphone (v13.3.1).

However I cannot get email to work on my ipads, they immediately get quarantined. If I use EAC to select my mailbox and then view my mobile devices I see the ipads in quarantined state. If I select them and choose allow, they go briefly into a pending state and then go back to quarantine.

The ipads are quite old, being v2 and v3 and have been reset to factory defaults and updated to 9.3.5 which is the latest available for these devices. I tried to download Outlook for IOS but I get an error stating it is not available for this ipad.

Are these devices just too old to connect to Exchange? When I set up the built-in mail client I get all the checkboxes ticked.

Thanks in advance.

I use Windows for my computers, but have both an iPhone and iPad connected to my Yahoo email account.  All of a sudden (as of four days ago) my email stopped coming into my iPhone and iPad.  Everything else seems to be working.  At the bottom of the screen it gives me the following message:  "Updated Saturday.  Account Error:  Yahoo!  Details" ... but when I click on "Details" nothing happens.  They are connected to our WiFi network.  What could have caused this, and how do I fix it?


OneNote file changes lost after email migration?

Short story:
> Client was acquired by a larger company and they did an email migration (our tenant to their on prem Exchange, then back to tenant after we released it and they acquired it).
> All went well
> One User used OneNote a lot on her iPad and it was syncing fine with the Office365 cloud account before migration
> Post migration cutover OneNote stopped syncing on her iPad
> She continued to use Onenote on iPad (making changes on the iPad that were not synced to Cloud - but I assume HAD to be stored on the iPad SOMEWHERE)
> Found a Microsoft technet post that suggested you delete the iPad Oneote credentials and then start Onenote and sign back in - triggering a sync
> Did that
> Now all the Notebooks are blank? Non-existent? Trying to open some of them in Office365 gives you a '404 File Not Found' message?

Bottom line:
> Her Windows PC has all Onenote files as of the Migraton date (about December 2019).
> Her iPad must have been storing the changes it made post migration (since it could not sync) SOMEWHERE on her iPad

> Where are the Onenote files stored on the iPad?
> How do we get them to sync to OneDrive?

Hope I've explained this clearly :^)
I have a service client moving to cloud based dispatch.
What would you recommend for field techs - Chromebook, iPad, or WIndows tablet.
What service(s) to connect?  LTE for coverage or Wireless with access point?

My iPhone just recently go hit by a spam or virus, don't know which.  But started noticing the message "iphone virus protection expired" in my calendar and no way of deleting the event.  Eventually I did get to delete it.  And that's where my great experts come in.  In early morning I did noticed that my iPhone calendar popped up a "suscribe" message and I clicked it assuming it was part of the work I was doing, but now I know it wasn't.  Just some time back I I start seeing in my calendar "iphone virus protection expired" with no hope of deleting.

I googled the problem and found that by deleting the created account in "Password & Accounts", that would resolved (and it seem it did, no more event).  Prior deleting the account I noticed a long line starting with arisinglytos.pro then a long random numbers etc.

So a couple questions:
  • How is it that just by clicking on Subscribe, the the "virus or spam" had access to my Password & Accounts in iPhone 11 ios13.3?
  • By deleting the account, am I done? Is it solved? Anything else to do?
  • What is arisinglytos.pro?
Probably an obvious question, but considering the differences between phones and tablets for javascript games..

... Is the proper way to do browser + device games' object locations in fractions of device height and width? And size game objects as ratios also? What must I do concerning strategies for phone/tablet+browser? AND device rotation accommodations?
How does Javascript detect phone / tablet/ browser?

I don't have a tablet. Which is the best to get for game dev? many ... iPad, Surface . . . not necessary, any?
Let's consider a word game like Wordscapes. The main interface is the circular  object to select letters for a word-answer. Is that just 1/4 of width distance from border and x% width for the circle diameter?

I have two iPad devices that are running the IOS 12.X code and the users forgot the password for these two devices. I would like to reset these devices to factory defaults in order to get these two devices working again.

We are seeing a periodic problem with some iPad users. When they are on a slow link, some of the email has the message " Message downloaded as plain text. Click here to download full message". I have been asked to look into a way to force the entire message the the device. I have searched KB's and looked into a number of post about it, but I cannot find a specific setting. The Exchange server is 2016 on premise. Is anyone aware of a way to configure the ActiveSync policy to force a download of the entire email, even over a slow link? There have been a few things I have read that said the device may control this feature to save bandwidth or data. If so, is anyone away of a setting that can be changed on the iPad\iPhone for force it to download the entire email?

I have a Lexmark e460dn laser printer on my home network plugged into a network switch, which is plugged into my wireless router. It is visible wirelessly to my MacBook Air 11" over the wifi part of the network (the MacBook has no Ethernet connection) and I can print to it without problems. However, I want to be able to print to it from my other Apple mobile devices (iPads & iPhones of various ages and various iOS versions). How would I go about adding it to them?

We have a customer who has a one drive account within their office 365 portal.
The user would like to share files with an external party on a regular basis.
