Olympus DS-7000 Digital Dictation Device
What is it?
The Olympus DS-7000 Digital Dictation Device is the top of the line dictation recorder made by Olympus. This is by far the most popular model we sell and support.
What makes it the best?
Quality and Simplicity. The DS-7000 is a state of the art , metal framed recorder to withstand years of use – yet it is as simple to use as your trusty old micro cassette dictation device.
How does it work?
Just like the Dictaphones of old. The slide switch is intuitive, the rest is automated. We like to call it “Talk and Dock”
Is it hard to set up?
Nope!- We do it for you via secure remote computer access. Every custom installation, configuration and training is 100% free of charge.
Is it hard to use?
Absolutely not!. Once installed and configured, your interface with the software should be minimal. Once dropped in the docking / charging cradle, the rest is automated. Recordings are downloaded, the recorder is cleaned, and the dictation are securely sent to your transcriptionist, or run through your existing Dragon Naturally Speaking speech recognition profile
What about ongoing technical support?
100% free as well. And provided by our expert, in house technical support representatives during regular business hours.
Is there a less expensive alternative?
Sure there is. The Olympus DS-3500 is the next step down. The differences are the DS-3500 lacks the slide switch, and does not have a docking cradle or AC adapter.
The differences are significant enough that 9 out of 10 users choose the Olympus DS-7000 Digital Dictation Device.
What does my typist / transcriptionist need?
The Olympus AS-7000 Transcription Kit. This integrates seamlessly with the DS-7000. Your transcriptionist will get a pop up when dictations arrive, and will type just like he or she always has.
The whole kit is available as the Olympus TS-7000 which is every single item needed for one dictation user and one typist.
Does it work on a Mac?
Yes see the specifications tab for the supported OS. The difference is that your dictations cannot be automatically sent via e-mail or FTP. A typical office network with shared folders is the best setup on a Mac.
What if I don’t like it?
We can confidently tell you that after installation and configuration that you will not, but if for any reason the DS-7000 does not fit your needs, call us to return it within 30 days for a full refund. Just keep the packaging and all accessories in like new condition. Here is our policy.
