If you have been running the Recording Studio in a working directory, you will need to copy the files into your active directory when you have completed the recordings. Since the default $type studio infoboxes now refer to the VOICE subdirectory for system messages and the IMAGE directory for menus and document descriptions, the steps described below are now not needed for most CopiaFacts installations.

For system messages, you will need to copy "*.VOX" or "*.WAV" from the working directory to the @FFBASE\VOICE standard directory. For image and menu messages, you will copy *.VOX from the working directory to the @FFBASE\IMAGE directory. If you have multiple system voice message directories (perhaps for different languages) or multiple image-location directories, it is suggested that you either use separate working directories for each target directory or create batch files to copy only the necessary files.

For multiple-segment files, the moving to the active directory will normally happen when you run FFAMOUNT to compile the algorithm. The individual files will remain in your working directory and the combined file will be placed in the directory specified in the algorithm file.

Note that the running of either FFAMOUNT or the batch file to copy voice files can be initiated from an IIF run box ($type query) so that you can update your voice messages remotely without access to the machine running CopiaFacts.
