Performing the required configuration enables:
- The use of pop-ups from the SpeechMiner Domain.
- Treating the SpeechMiner domain as part of the local intranet (or as a trusted site).
- Automatic updating of cached web pages.
Configure Internet Explorer to work with SpeechMiner
Perform the following steps to configure Internet Explorer to work with SpeechMiner:
- If Internet Explorer is running on a Windows Server 2008 machine or Windows Server 2012 machine, the Enhanced Security Configuration feature should be turned off. Refer to the Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2012 section below.
