L&H sold "Voice Xpress" as a package with an Olympus DS-150 DVR. The
package included the DVR, the software, and a reasonable quality dual-jack
headset/boom-microphone. In operation, you first train the PC installation
of the voice software, as is usual with dictation software. You then
separately create a training profile using the DVR as a pass-through
microphone. From then on, you have a 73-minute DVR, which can have the
dictation fed back into the computer and transcribed.

In use? Dictating to the PC, which I don't do very often, I guess I hit
somewhere around 75-80% accuracy. In using the DVR, which I don't use much
at the moment, but have done in the past - I was at around 90-95% accuracy,
with a high proportion of specialist (systems management) terminology taught
to the profile.

I don't know if the whole package is still available anymore, but I do
recall seeing a set on eBay a couple of days ago, as I still had them on my
saved search.

Hope that helps,

Has anyone heard or used a digital voice recorder that automatically
transcribes when connected to your computer? If so, what brand have you
used? Would you endorse it?
