|Getting Started with the Vocera Badge / Quick Starts for the Badge|
Changing the battery, calling the Genie, recording your name, and adjusting the volume is simple using your Vocera badge.
New batteries must be charged before use. If the badge has already been used by someone else, check the battery level indicator on the badge display to ensure the battery has sufficient power.
For more information on other ways to determine whether the battery needs to be charged and for instructions on how to charge the battery, refer to Maintaining Your Badge.
The badge begins a startup sequence. Wait until the badge display reads Logged Out or shows the name of a user.
You also can connect the lanyard or clip to the badge before installing the battery.
For optimal speech recognition, the top of the badge should be approximately 6 inches (15 centimeters) from your chin. Any sound coming from another direction or beyond that distance is reduced or eliminated by the noise canceling microphones.
If the Genie asks for your name, say your first and last names.
If the Genie answers by saying "Vocera" or by playing a tone, another user may already be logged in. If so, say "Log me out," wait for the chime, and then press the Call button again to log in.
The Genie will prompt you to record your name. If you do not record your name, the Vocera system uses speech synthesis to say your name.
