Web Linking Server in Canada Now Available

See our July 2015 blog post about TypeWell's collaboration with Post-Secondary Communication Access Services (PCAS) to establish a new Web Linking server located in Vancouver, B.C. 

We're excited to announce that after a couple of months of beta testing, the new "Canada Server" is now available for regular use in classes or meetings. This enables transcribers in Canada to use TypeWell to stream data to Canadian clients so the data never resides on TypeWell’s U.S. servers.

Previously, users could only connect to one of two Web Linking servers located in the United States (left). Now, Canadian users can connect to the server located in Vancouver, B.C. (right).

To connect to this new server, transcribers need to install the latest software update for the V7 Premium Transcriber program. The steps for Web Linking are exactly the same, except that in the Web Linking setup window, transcribers will select "Canada server" from the drop-down menu and then click the "Add Channel" button.
