If you encounter a defect with the software media, Speakeasy Solutions Inc. will gladly exchange product upon receipt of the defective item (plus shipping and handling costs).

Any complications resulting in Speakeasy Solutions Inc. providing additional products and services not covered by the original estimate will be borne by the client and added to the client’s invoice.
Product purchase (software and hardware) only does not include services such as technical support, installation, setup or training.
Services are available via the following methods: on site, telephone, email and remotely over the Internet.
Services will be invoiced at current rates for such with the first contact (regardless of contact method) after products have been purchased. Services sought are best conducted during a scheduled appointment (contact Speakeasy Solutions Inc. to book an appointment).
If Speakeasy Solutions Inc. is performing installation and training remotely, the first item that Speakeasy Solutions Inc. will install is a remote desktop viewing program. It is absolutely imperative that you have a high speed Internet connection, and we also suggest a speaker phone for additional comfort and convenience. Please contact Dean of our office at 604-264-9109 (toll free 1-888-964-9109) ext. 103 if you have any questions or concerns regarding remote setup.
Speech Recognition Training Time
Training time is an estimate only. Everyone learns at a different pace and every individual’s needs are unique. Initial training usually comprises of the number of hours specified on the estimate. Specific program training may work into the initial training, but may require additional training sessions if desired.
Training appointments are held in two hour sessions. All estimated training appointments must be given within 3 months of installation and cannot be “banked”. Training appointments cannot be transferred to another user.
Speech Recognition Training Only
If Speakeasy Solutions Inc. is being contracted to provide speech recognition training only services, all hardware and software associated with speech recognition must be installed, set up and configured on a PC that meets our minimum specifications, with a quality headset, prior to the training session.
Speakeasy Solutions Inc. is not accountable for hardware or software deficiencies for a solution they have not provided. If a training session cannot commence or is cut short as a result of deficiencies, the session will be charged nonetheless. Technical support services from Speakeasy Solutions Inc. can be arranged at current rates for such. Thank you for your understanding.
Any appointments cancelled or postponed less than 2 business days before the scheduled appointment will incur a charge at our current rates for such.
Training appointments are now booking between 2 and 4 weeks in advance — please do not postpone your appointments as it may be at least one month before the make-up appointment can take place.
Postponing appointments will potentially hamper speech recognition training.
Preparation Document (Implementing Your Solution)
Speakeasy Solutions Inc. provides its clients with a preparation document (entitled “Implementing Your Solution”) in advance of installing speech recognition and digital voice dictation solutions. This document is usually incorporated in the body of the email sent with an estimate.
If the document is not adhered to, resulting in Speakeasy Solutions Inc. needing to provide additional services or returning to the client’s site after an initial attempt at installation and set up has been made, the client may incur additional costs over and above the original estimate.
Contact Speakeasy Solutions Inc. if you have any questions regarding the contents of this document.
Installation for either speech recognition or digital dictation solutions is performed in one appointment.
If additional appointments are required to complete the installation due to an insufficiently prepared PC or other extenuating circumstances beyond Speakeasy Solutions Inc.’s control, the client will be invoiced for the additional service.
