Does dictation take you back to your elementary school days when your teacher used to read aloud a passage you and you had to capture it? Or maybe the image that comes to mind is that of the psychiatrist speaking into his digital recorder for transcription later. Regardless of the image that comes to mind, you might be interested to learn more about dictation equipment and how it allows businesses to capture quick and accurate recording of information for many purposes.
Dictation equipment is a method to record ideas rather than writing them down. It is also used in business as it allows for quick and accurate recording of information. In addition, it is used when writing isn’t practical such as in medical services. There is a variety of dictation equipment on the market and it’s important to choose the correct one for your needs.
There are two main situations for dictation. The first is when note taking is too time consuming or difficult, such as when one is traveling. In these situations a recorder can easily record a necessary conversation.
The second situation is to shift the burden of typing from highly paid executives and professionals to lower salaried employees. Executives and professionals such as doctors dictate. Transcribers then transcribe the work to document form.
Features You Need:
One very important feature to have is indexing. This lets the user add a tone at the start and end of a dictated message, which makes it easier for the transcriber to find the beginning and end of a document.
Voice activation is another feature to consider. With voice activation, when you speak the recording starts automatically. However, the first couple of words are usually distorted.
Digital dictation equipment is the new kid on the block, and it’s a great deal more complex than analogue equipment. It offers many different capabilities depending on what is needed.
Transcription equipment is used to convert messages that have been dictated to written documents. iRecord’s digital audio and video equipment lets the transcriber modify both the speed and volume of the dictation, as well as rewinding and forwarding.
