The clearest advantage digital dictation has over a tape is that a user can rewind or fast forward to any point within the dictation file to review or edit. The random access ability of digital audio allows inserting audio at any point without overwriting the following text.
With digital dictation, sound may be CD quality and can improve transcription accuracy and speed. Digital dictation provides the ability to report on the volume or type of dictation and transcription outstanding or completed within an organization. Dictation audio can be recorded in various audio file formats. Most digital dictation systems use a lossy form of audio compression based on modelling of the vocal tract to minimize hard disk space and optimize network utilization as files are transferred between users.
Digital voice recorders can offer up to 22 hours of recording time. Digital text to speech software allows users to transfer voice recordings to computer files. As there are no moving parts in a digital device that records to solid state memory the device will last longer than a mechanical tape recorder / player and you will experience fewer problems during the life of the device.
The great advantage of this software is that professionals can dictate into the same devices they are used to. However, as compared to its analogue counterpart, digital dictation is far better than analogue transcription. A digital file can be quickly edited by a lawyer before it is sent to a transcriptionist.
This software is also available for mobile phones, allowing companies to deploy dictation software to employees who may be on the road, or work outside of the office. Mobile Dictation Software also features security elements that authenticate the Mobile users and retrieves information from the database to send back to the Mobile.
Digital Dictation software also features workflow management, a powerful and agile tool to create multistep process management workflows. Voice files and associated documents move through a series of actions and to multiple destinations, all within the same product without the need for additional business process management software.
