WebShuttle is a web-based platform that is accessed through a web browser. However, web browsers do have limitations when dealing with features such as scheduled processes, accessing files from the user's hard drive and integrating with desktop apps such as Microsoft Word. For this reason, WebShuttle includes plug-ins which are desktop applications that can be used to perform certain features more efficiently. There are two plug-ins for WebShuttle. They are "DocShuttle Dictator Plug-in" and "DocShuttle Transcriptionist Plug-in". These programs are described below.
