Once you're logged in to GlobalVision Web, the Dashboard displays, with each of the applications available to you displayed up top. 

The inspection modes appear in the following order:
Text
(1), Graphics (2), Spelling (3), Braille (4), Barcode (5) and Notes (6). 


Clicking an inspection icon displays its file-loading page to begin the inspection process, regardless of where you are in the application. 

Clicking the GlobalVision Dashboard button (7) will return you back to the dashboard screen. 

Loading files and inspections

See the getting started section of each mode for more information and how to load files. 

Once an inspection is run, the file and report appears as a clickable item on the Dashboard under (8) Files or Reports, with the timestamp (9) of when it was first loaded or generated appearing beside it. 


The Status (10) indicates whether an inspection is "In Progress", has been successfully "Uploaded" or "Completed", or has "Failed". 

The maximum waiting time for a report to generate being 60 minutes. If your report could not be generated within 60 minutes, the system marks the report as “Failed”.

Managing Reports 

On the Dashboard, check a box on the far-right side and click Delete selected file(s) (11) to discard the reports you want to delete. 

A maximum of 100 reports can be stored at a time. When you try to perform the 101st inspection, the system notifies you that you must delete at least one report before continuing.
