Olympus® Digital Voice Recorders Receive Highest Designation From Nuance Communications Inc.

Olympus, the market leader in portable digital voice recorders, professional dictation devices and Linear PCM music recorders, has earned the “Nuance Certified” designation and received the highest rating of six dragons for its DS-7000 and DS-3500 Professional Dictation Systems, as well as its DS-2500 digital voice recorder. All the devices passed rigorous tests conducted by Nuance using its Dragon NaturallySpeaking product and meet the highest criteria for performance and quality.

The DS-7000 Professional Dictation System from Olympus sets an industry standard in portable audio recording equipment and digital voice recorders. Proving a seamless workflow with Dragon Naturally Speaking, the DS-7000 has been specifically designed for accurate voice recognition and high voice quality.

The outstanding recording quality offered by the DS-7000 ensures that Voice Recognition is simple and accurate.

The DS-7000 provides an array of professionals who rely on dictation – from lawyers to doctors to law enforcement, among others – with a dependable tool that features real-time 256-bit file encryption, a redesigned, independently housed microphone, slide switch control, enhanced battery life, and a color LCD which ensures the information displayed on-screen is clear and easy to read.

The DS-3500 Professional Dictation System digital voice recorder is designed to dramatically increase efficiency and streamline operations in any professional environment. The push button controlled recorder is the perfect blend of premium features and ease of use.

Through Olympus’ ODMS software, both the DS-7000 and DS-3500 can be implemented seamlessly in a variety of business settings that require the ability to record and transcribe high volume, sensitive data without compromising security or efficiency.
