Transcription is still a booming field that allows a professional transcriber to work from home rather than in a traditional office setting. To be successful, however, you need the proper transcription tools. The Desktop Analog Mini Cassette Transcriber Dictation unit allows you easily transcribe meeting notes.

What Size Tapes Does the Desktop Analog Mini Cassette Transcriber Dictation System Take?

The desktop transcriber requires mini cassettes. The dictation system is an analog cassette transcriber system and does not record files digitally. This system works best with the Philips brand mini cassettes, not the microcassettes created by other brands.

How Do You Use the Dictation System to Record?

This model is merely a transcription machine and does not feature a recording option. Instead, it comes with headphones and a foot pedal for you to be able to control the speed of playback to allow you to transcribe the notes easier. It comes with headphones so that you can hear the dictation on the cassette.

What Are the Functions Available on the Desktop Analog Mini Cassette Transcriber Dictation System?

With this dictation and transcription system, you have several active and review functions to make playback simpler. There is an audible scan feature which allows you to scan for vocal cues. Also, there is an auto shut off and an index search by cue tone. You also have the play, search for it, skip and erase functions available to you. The tapes have two playback speeds which are variable.

Does the Cassette Transcriber Come with a Foot Pedal?

The transcribe machine for dictation does come with a foot pedal. It allows you to control the speed of which playback occurs. You can also start and stop the tape with a press of your foot. It gives you greater control when transcribing meeting, medical and legal notes from a voice dictation system into your computer.
