What are the main features of this model?
The DS-5000 is a digital voice recorder that records in the Digital Speech Standard Pro (DS2) audio format. It uses microSD/SDHC flash media for internal memory and also accepts optional SD/SDHC media via an external card slot. Because its memory media are removeable, the recorder need never be left with a transcriptionist. In addition, should the recorder ever need service, the media can be removed before shipping to provide additional security. The recorder ships with a 512MB microSD card but accepts cards up to 8GB. Using larger-capacity media dramatically increases potential recording time.
The DS-5000 offers the ability to edit files in the recorder. File-editing functions include appending files, overwriting a section within a file and inserting new recordings into an existing file. Since the DS-5000 is also a mass storage device, it can be used as a USB flash drive to transfer files from one computer to another.
The DS-5000 features a Device Lock security option new to Olympus digital voice recorders. Device Lock prevents unauthorized access to the device via password protection
The bundled DSS Player Pro R5 for Windows® and DSS Player 7 for Mac™ software is used to download dictation files to a computer, where they can be archived and where further file editing can be performed. Files can be encrypted in DSS Player Pro R5, and they can also be converted to other audio formats.
DSS Player Pro R5 is compatible with Dragon NaturallySpeaking 8, 9 and 10 Preferred and Pro. No voice-to-text support is available in DSS Player 7 for Mac.
The DS-5000 is an Olympus Professional Dictation Device. As such, technical support for the recorder and its associated software is provided solely by authorized Olympus Professional Dictation Products dealers.
How does DSS Player Pro R5 differ from DSS Player 7?
For the most part, DSS Player Pro R5 and DSS Player 7 are similar. DSS Player Pro R5 offer some enhancements designed to facilitate the transfer and archiving of files on a computer network. The primary enhancements found in DSS Player Pro R5 but not in DSS Player 7 are:
Automatic distribution of recordings by e-mail or FTP to transcriptionists or other users
Automatic retrieval of transcribed text documents, via e-mail or FTP, linking the document to the recording
More options for file audio format conversion
More options for demographic data inputs into the voice recorder.
What file-editing options are available in the DS-5000?
The DS-5000 has the ability to edit previously recorded files in the recorder. This enables a dictator to edit an audio file to a finished form before submitting it to a transcriptionist, thereby eliminating the need for correction notes. The editing options are:
Appending - Add new dictation to the end of a file.
Overwrite Recording - Sections of dictation in a previously recorded file can be overwritten from any point within the file. The overwritten sections will be erased.
Insert Recording - Insert additional dictation into a previously recorded file.
Verbal Comment - Comments such as instructions for a transcriptionist can be inserted into a dictation file during recording. The insertions are marked as verbal comments in the file header. It is possible to search for verbal comments in the same way Index Marks are located -- by pressing the Rewind or Fast-Forward button. When the file is downloaded and played in DSS Player Pro R5, the Verbal Comments are indicated by light blue sections in the Play Bar of the Playback Controller. Up to 32 Verbal Comments can be set in a file. Verbal Comments cannot be inserted if the recorder is set up in the Classic DSS audio format.
