New & Improved Internal Linking on Windows 10
Transcribing in a location without internet access? Can't connect to campus/public WiFi? Use Internal Linking!
Internal Linking works by turning the transcriber machine into a WiFi Access Point. Other devices in the area can then connect to that Virtual Access Point and see what the transcriber types using a regular Web browser.
Internal Linking is what many transcribers use as a "back-up" for Web Linking.
Key Features of Internal Linking
- The transcriber can use Internal Linking to link to any computer or mobile device that's physically near the transcriber's laptop.
- Internal Linking is similar to Web Linking in that it uses the built-in Web browser on the reader's device. The reader doesn't need to install any special software.
- Unlike Web Linking, Internal Linking works even without an Internet connection, because the server resides on the transcriber's machine.
This Support Center article provides step-by-step instructions to install the new & improved Internal Server on a transcriber laptop:
NOTE: The updated Internal Server software is currently called "beta" but it's been tried and tested for a couple of semesters already on laptops running Windows 10.
