The new DS-9500 dictation device brings greater flexibility and freedom to professional users with the introduction of WiFi-enabled file transfer to a smartphone for instant emailing. Files can also be transferred via the docking/recharging station.

The device’s two noise-reducing, omnidirectional microphones also improve productivity by optimising recording quality in noisy environments, which can reduce the time it takes to transcribe files.

Other useful features include an easy-to-use slide switch for intuitive operation; a 2.4in colour display; integrated memory (expandable via the SD card slot); and a choice of security options to protect files, including PIN code and 256-bit encryption.

The new version of Olympus’s bundled dictation management software, Olympus Dictation Management System ODMS R7, also boasts additional time-saving features, notably the ability quickly to turn speech into text. Key features include:

Automatic dictation import from DSseries devices;

File exchange via email, network folder or FTP;

Player control via footswitch;

Background and real-time speech recognition (in combination with Dragon speech recognition software by Nuance, which must be installed separately);

Support for multi speech recognition profiles; and

256-bit AES encryption.

There is also an optional System Configuration Programme (SCP) for ODMS that lets you manage dictation hardware and workflows centrally via a web browser. To speed up the manual transcription of voice files (rather than automatic transcription by Dragon), Olympus recommends an AS-9000 Transcription Kit, featuring a stereo headset and USB foot pedal with four configurable buttons.
