Intro: Here is a recent comment from Rolf. I tried out the software and it seems to work just fine. Maybe we’ll get a telepathic metering video online soon. :). (I wrote the post title, not Rolf.)
Set-up to document remote metering:
One can record one’s screen with free software found here:
By setting up a session using computer meters, one can have it all on one’s monitor and ready to record. The PC’s meter can be shown on webcam, also if it’s a computer meter. That just requires the webcam isn’t a built-in one.
Auditor’s meter can be displayed on auditor’s monitor next to the Skype video. I have now a Mindwalker 3 that can do that.
Introduction: Rolf Dane is a CofS-trained Class VIII who has been auditing for 25 years. He lives in Copenhagen, Denmark. He has audited people over the Internet from Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Italy, UK, Scotland, Australia, Israel, South Korea, USA, Canada, Mexico, South Africa, Slovenia and the Nederlands. He has a website here. He posted this comment very recently and I am making a main post out of it because I want to give people a chance to ask him questions without it all being buried down in the comments somewhere.
He is very happy to answer questions about distance auditing and training. Simply add a comment to this post and he will add a comment providing an answer.
I use remote metering or telepathic metering. I usually don’t completely depend on the meter as I would in normal session set up. When I assess a list, for instance, I will with some pcs require them to answer each question with yes or no. If the meter responds well with that pc I will do it as in normal session.
Assessing an important list, such as Int Buttons, I would ask the pc to comment on each. If the pc comments verbally it is much easier to determine if the item is charged or not. It will show up on the meter or will be obvious from the pc’s statement and tone of voice.
I have also used a system I learned doing TIR*. You simply have pc grade each item for charge and interest on a scale from 0-10, 10 being the most charged. In doing prepchecking I will simply have the pc answer the question till he runs out of answers and then move onto the next button. That works very well too.
