My LS is not connecting with CaseCAT.  I rebooted, uninstalled LS, re-installed LS, unplugged and replugged USB from computer.  The LS keyboard comes up and I can see my strokes but no translation.  All settings are correct according to the manual.  Does anybody have any suggestions as to how I can get my software to connect with my LS?  Thank you!  Janet

Well, the saga of the new LightSpeed.  I think Stenovations has had lots of complaints about vowel issues with this writer because they sent out a beta download to try to fix the problems.  The stacking and the vowel issues are terrible; when I want to write "I" instead I get "you" and when I want to write "you" I get "I."  You can't global that in a sentence because it could come up either way.  Not sure this is going to work for me.

Thanks, Lori.  I'll figure it out.  

I did take it on a all-day realtime job on Tuesday.  260 pages.  Long day.

Yay!  Keep at it, Kelli.  I know you are frustrated, but seriously, you are doing better on the Lightspeed than most people after such a short time!!!

I just got this beanbag desk in the mail today.  My wrists fit perfect on the beanbag ledge and it feels great.  Sort of large, though, but it will have to do.  This is the best fit I've found so far.

You're totally right on sleeping with a splint.  I do sometimes and other times I forget.  I'll start doing that again.  Thank you.

I also do put the LS on my lap with a computer desk underneath it and also slant my legs downward so it is at a slant.  

I'm totally scratching my head.  I don't get why I'm in so much pain, even worse than the Diamante at this point.  Very weird.  I have no idea why.

There is a facebook group called Stenovations Digitalcat Lightspeed Users Group started I believe by Greta Harris Duckett who is a trainer and reporter.  She is awesome with her knowledge and help re LS. There are some configs she shares on the site donated by other users.  I couldn't believe how my translation changed once I employed one of the configs.  This site contains a wealth of info.  

I also have some suggestions for wrist pain.  Try, if you don't already do it, sleeping in the wrist supports/splints.  Often when we sleep, our hands can be bent for long periods of time in positions not beneficial to reporting.   Another thing to try is to try a laptop stand on your lap with the highest angle toward your abdomen.  You can rest your wrists at a rather strange angle that might be beneficial.  Looks strange, sounds strange, but it can help.   I found a cheapo one for $7.00 at Ikea.  Best wishes!

Yeah, I'm struggling with that huge space to deal with that's clearly in the way.  Wish I could cut it off or something.

Oh no. I have the original version. That space on mine is much smaller. The heel of my hand sits on that part of my LS and then the beanbag thing in before the LS on my lap

There is that huge space in the middle below you can see, your wrists would have to be on that flat space, which leads me to think you have the pillow on that flat area here?
