 Hello and welcome to the Dolphin EasyConverter tutorials. In this tutorial I am going to take a hard copy document and turn it into an electronic text file. I am then going to use the tools within the project view section to edit the document within Microsoft Word and then convert it into an MP3. Firstly I am going to choose ‘Quick Conversion’. Now I want to scan a hard copy document, so I am going to select ‘scan one or more papers’. I am then going to choose next to move onto the next stage. This is the stage where I can decide what format I want to convert my hard copy document into. As you can see I already have text selected. The output name is shown here. If I wish to edit this, this is the time to do so. This is where the output will be saved to. If I wish to save this I can select browse and then select a new location. Additional destinations. Here I can decide to save a copy of my output. I can also send it directly to a printer. I don’t want to do this, so I’m just going to leave it as ‘no copy to’. I’m now going to select finish to begin my conversion. If I want to add anymore pages to the conversion I can select add more pages. I’ve only got the one so I am going to select ‘stop loading pages’. When the status bar reaches 100% I can select ‘done’. My text file is now shown here under ‘Resulting alternative formats’. To view the text file I can select it and then click on ‘view output’. My text file is then opened in Microsoft Notepad. Now to look at the project view section. All the information I need about the document is shown here under ‘title’ ‘input’ and ‘project’. Now I am going to edit the document within Microsoft Word, so I simply select ‘edit document’. My document is now opened within Microsoft Word. I am going to perform some simple editing on this document. I am going to add some headings. Adding headings is a good idea, as it allows you to quickly add structure to your conversion. I am going to use ‘Heading 1’, ‘Heading 2’ and ‘Heading 3’. I can now choose ‘save and return’ to go back to the main interface. I can now select ‘new output’. From here I can choose a new resulting alternative format. I am going to choose MP3. As we can see here Dolphin EasyConverter is asking me about the headings. I added 3 headings to my document, so this mean it will be split up into 3 sections. Now I can choose ‘Next’ and move on to the next stage. Choose the output name for MP3. Here I can alter the name of my MP3. I am going to change it to ‘new MP3’. I can also choose to append some extra information on to the output name. I can choose MP3, date it was created, the voice that was used, and also the lexicon. If I don’t want to add this information I can simply uncheck this check box. The location that the output will be saved to is shown here. I can now choose ‘next’ and move on to the next section. Copy your alternative format. Here I can choose to save a copy of my alternative format. I can also burn it straight to DVD or CD or directly to a USB device. I am going to choose ‘no copy to’. I can now select next to move on the final stage. I can now click ‘Finish’ to begin the conversion. When the status bar has reached 100 % I can choose done. My new alternative format is now shown under ‘Resulting alternative format’. To view the MP3 I can select it and then choose ‘View output’. As you can see my MP3 is split up into 3 sections. This is due to the heading styles that I put in place.
