I just got a new IMac computer and am trying to download the adium chat program so I can do files, but i am having problems with adding my account on it and it will not connect, I get a "socket" error. I just wanted to see if anyone has a Mac and what program they use to transcribe with.

I transcribe from a Mac too, and I too am getting the socket error even though I followed all the install instructions (for Mac) very carefully.

PC users seem to have something called Pidgin [sp?]. I am really confused about this whole issue - welcome screen says I have to log in to typistlink but I thought it did not work yet and we were still supposed to use Yahoo.

Can anyone clarify? thx

Thanks for the replies. I just found out that I can use the same thing I used on my PC, the typistlink I just logged on and hit transcribe and am able to get files like before! wish I tried that to begin with lol!
