Dictate wherever you are
Turn your voice into text, even on the go.Learn more
With its vast array of functions and accessories like USB, a docking station and speech processing software, the DS-3500 can be customised to form an essential part of any professional dictation workflow in any IT environment – comfortably from the palm of your hand.
Creating texts by merely speaking is more than just recording. The digital speech standard (DSS) allows for quick file editing (insert, overwrite, append, erase/cut) and uses meta information (index, verbal comments, worktypes, etc.) to facilitate collaboration and automatic processing.
As well as being ergonomically designed to fit perfectly in your palm and ensure comfortable operation for up to several hours at a time, its housing is also built from tough metal to withstand even the toughest of working conditions in the long term.
The outstanding 10-mm microphone and the DSS Pro audio codec are excellent for speech recognition and transcription performance. This has been certified by Nuance with 6 Dragons for maximum accuracy.
Just plug in a stereo microphone** (e.g. ME-33) and make use of stereo recording to easily identify specific speakers during playback. Situations such as conference or interview recording do not require the support of perfect blind operation via slide switch. Therefore the DS-3500 is the perfect compromise, if the daily work is not mainly focused on professional dictation.
The docking station that is optionally available with the DS-3500 acts as a convenient base for charging your device, as well as for transferring data via the USB connection. You can even link it up to an optional footswitch, allowing for handsfree recording and playback of your dictations.
Every professional sector involves sensitive information in the workplace that needs to be safeguarded by the strictest data security. The Olympus DS-3500 protects dictations against unintended access by means of sophisticated 256 or 128-bit real-time file encryption*. Only authors and typists who know the particular password can open an encrypted dictation. The device can also be locked with a personal 4-digit PIN, making sure all data stays off limits to unauthorised individuals.
* Stereo recording must be supported by the selected audio codec and external stereo microphone necessary (3,5 mm jack).
