Do you dictate “on the move” – if you do, then an iPhone or Android app may be a better fit for you. This will mean less items to carry around. We recommend the Olympus app with end-to-end 256 bit AES encryption.
If you prefer a dedicated digital dictation handset, then look no further than the Olympus DS9500. This handset has dual microphones to keep the focus on who is dictating as well as suppressing ambient noise in offices, cars and other typical environments that you may dictate in.
This model also has the slide switch that fee earners are used to. DTFL finds that fee earners dictating using a slide switch as opposed to a push button means that dictation does not get cut off at the start or at the end.
Like most of the Olympus digital handsets, there are five different folders. You can use these in different ways; dictate all letters into folder A, file notes into folder B, etc. You can also set different folders to route the dictation to different typists; your own secretary for folder A, DTFL for folder B, etc. When you place the handset into the docking station, it will automatically route the dictations to the correct typist.
DTFL uses Speak-IT Solutions and, in particular, Lee Ryan, for all our hardware needs. We always recommend our clients and typists to them. They are extremely helpful and will also assist in setting you up with your new equipment. Nothing is too much trouble for them.
