If your IT department has established strict security restrictions, it can be very difficult to install software - sometimes it’s not possible at all. However, there are some other options for typists who want to transcribe directly from a digital recorder - and we’ve collected a few of them here to help you find the solution that suits your needs:
The Philips DPM8100 Recorder & Transcription Kit is a straightforward, no-installation, no-integration system for dictation and transcription. When you purchase this kit, you’ll receive a docking station, foot control and headset. Simply plug the foot control into the docking station, and the headset into your recorder, and you’ll be ready to go. To transcribe the audio files, simply dock the DPM8100 recorder and you’ll be able to control the playback using the foot control. No software needed. The team here at DMCL will configure the DPM8100 to operate in transcription mode before we send it out to you.
The Grundig Digta 7 Standalone Kit requires very little setup in order for typists to start transcribing - so it’s perfect for a situation where a simple setup is all you need, or if IT have locked down the computers and you’re not allowed to install software. Simply place the Digta 7 recorder into the docking station provided, and plug the foot control and headset into the docking station. The typist controls the playback of the recorder with the foot control, so in less than a minute, you can start transcribing with no issues.
