Olympus AS-2400 Transcription Kit with Multiple Format PlaybackThe Olympus AS-2400 Transcription is an entry-level or "consumer-grade" transcriber from Olympus. If you are a light typist, this may be an affordable solution for you.
The Olympus AS-2400 transcription kit is an entry-level digital transcriber. The As-2400 has many of the features of its professional counterparts with some distinct differences:
- Less Robust foot pedal for lighter use
- No encryption / decryption of files
- Cannot automatically receive voice files via e-mail or FTP
- No free installation, training, or support
If you are a transcriptionist who types occasionally, such as for a town board or a corporate executive, this is a good quality option that will do the job. If you type more regularly or need to receive files from a remote location, then you should purchase the Olympus AS-9000 professional transcription kit.
