The manual that comes with the machine gives step-by-step instructions on how to set up your Diamante and load your dictionary.

I just bought a new Diamante.  I literally took it out of the box yesterday.  What do I need to do to get it ready to use at a job tomorrow?

I just bought a Diamante.  What do I need to know to use it?  How do I transfer my dictionary?

Thank you, Montrell!  Didn't think of that!

Have you checked the amount of memory available on your SD card? If there is not an adequate amount of memory available, the audio will not record.

My Diamante audio is not recording.  The settings are set for "on" but the little wave bar does not move.  Anybody have this happen to them?

Good point, Ana...

Theresa, I should mention that the BlueSoleil Ciargo bluetooth connection is only used for my Diamante to the laptop, it is not used for my realtime output to attorneys.  I use the StenoCast RED router (plugs into a USB port) and that sends the realtime output to attorneys on my StenoCast Realtime TV iPads, it's a completely different connection.  There is also a bluetooth Ciargo BlueSoleil device that is just like the one that plugs into the Diamante and you plug that into a USB port on your laptop and that's how it connects; it's the direct connection without the cable.  When you purchase it, the kit comes with two wireless bluetooth connectors, one for the Diamante and one for your laptop.  They are both very small, half an inch in size.  It's still all very reliable and one device connection does not affect the other, all connections are wireless. 

Good luck!

Hi Theresa,

I just converted my Diamante to wireless.  I connected through TP Link, available at Stenograph.  I personally began having problems with wireless.  But I also use the TP Link to connect to my iPads for realtime.  Maybe it's just too much.  I switched back to connecting my Diamante with the USB cable and continue to use TP Link with my iPads.  You always have the option to switch back to cable, which is nice.  I feel more secure knowing I have the wireless, if needed.

Good luck!

Hi Theresa,

Yes, I use the Diamante's Bluetooth Wireless Realtime and have been using it since 2010 when I bought the Diamante.  It is very reliable, I love it and have had no problems at all.  I leave the bluetooth adapter in the Diamante all the time and it connects via the Ciargo BlueSoleil software that you install on your laptop when you purchase the realtime kit from Stenograph.  You must install the Blue Soleil driver CD into your laptop in order for it to work.  

Here is the Stenograph website information and the bluetooth I use: approx $135

Diamante Bluetooth Wireless Realtime Kit, featuring you can move up to 300 feet and still be connected for realtime wirelessly with the Diamante Bluetooth Wireless Realtime Kit, featuring Bluetooth® technology by Cirago® and BlueSoleil®


Hope this helps, and if you have any other questions, I'm happy to help :)
