Daily use:

It contains a long charging cable with y cord with the right angle that fits into the slots on the ILA if you want to keep it plugged in during the day. Please ensure that both devices are charged properly so there will be no issues throughout the day. You can verify by looking at the battery icon on the device’s status bar on the upper right to see it is charging (it would appear with the battery icon along with the lightning icon inside). 

When you are using the ILA device, please make sure the stand’s stance is wide open to secure the upright position and prevent the risk from falling. If you are not using them, you may close the latch and properly secure it somewhere safe. 

Before you can start using the ILA for the day, make sure you place the ILA device where you can see the ILA device clearly without any obstruction such as desk stand, objects around the ILA device, and such. It should be the same as the Guest side. 

When you are in the room, be aware of the potential noise environment that may hinder the ability of the ILA to do the speech to text. However, the ILA has a unique ability to recognize the sound and filter out the noise but to maximize the ILA’s speech to text performance, it is best to ensure that the only noise is coming from a person’s voice. 

Also, if you are in the session room, press the button and speak slowly and clearly to ensure that the speech to text will function at its best. Please observe your own room to make sure that the text is coming out correctly. Keep in mind, if you pause, the sentence line will break into the next line. 

When you are done using the ILA device for the day, please ensure that the device’s power is off and store it somewhere secure. The charger cord should be with the ILA device. Also, it is best to have an additional accessory such as wireless keyboards, handsets, or even external speakers to be placed somewhere all together. 


Please ensure that the ILA device is connected to WiFi or hotspot all of the time. You can observe the WiFi icon on the upper right to ensure that the device is connected to WiFi. Always check the WiFi icon before you can use the ILA. Without any internet, the ILA will not work. If there is no WiFi, check to make sure the device settings enable the WiFi. If not, please contact your network administrator. 

If you have any additional devices such as a wireless keyboard or an external speaker that is connected to Bluetooth, be sure to check the Bluetooth icon on the status bar (upper right) to ensure that it is connected. If there is no icon, please double check to see if your settings allow the device to be connected with Bluetooth.
