Release Notes:

This is a full installation package for the iCap Captioner software used for monitoring audio, video, and captions from an EEG or other iCap-compatible encoder. The software connects locally on your PC to a steno-captioning software package for generation of live caption data.

Press "Request Update" for the install.

What's New in: 2.12.5

  • Fixes software sticking in "Network Loss" state after an SSL connection is temporarily interrupted 

Installation Instructions

To install iCap, double-click on the provided icap.msi file. iCap is compatible with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 and 10. Your computer must have a sound card and speakers (or headphones) to avoid errors when initializing the audio monitoring features.

For most upgrades, it is not necessary to uninstall previous versions of iCap. However, if you do have trouble installing a new version, particularly over a much older version, a full uninstall of the older version may resolve the issue.

You can check your version at any time by opening the iCap software and navigating in the toolbar to Help | About.
