Is Dictation Faster Than Typing?

Dictation is three times faster than typing and it’s also 99% accurate. These two things together make law enforcement dictation a viable option for police departments who spend a lot of time filling out reports.

This is especially significant since traffic, crime and arrest reports, for example, can be essential to ongoing investigations and police officers can spend large chunks of time managing these cases and gathering information.

Law enforcement dictation software solutions from Olympus gives professionals the option to create incident reports in a new way. This not only saves time, it allows law enforcement professionals to create a detailed incident report while details are still fresh in their minds.

Officers can begin dictating at the scene into the Records Management System (RMS), on the way to their next case, or wherever it’s convenient for them to do so. Law enforcement dictation software from Olympus is not only easier to use, it gives law enforcement professionals the type of convenience they’ve always wanted. Olympus dictation software also eliminates a step in an officers’ workflows by allowing law enforcement professionals to instantly send the audio file to their transcriptionist so they can start typing up the document as soon as possible.

The Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS) also provides an easy-to-use interface with Nuance® Dragon® speech recognition software to transcribe your dictation files automatically with back-end speech recognition.

How Much Faster Do You Talk Than Type?

The average individual can type about 35 to 40 words in a minute compared to the average person who can speak 100 to 130 words a minute.

Dictating a report from the scene allows you to include more detail in your reporting since it’s still fresh in your mind and you’re not waiting hours until you’re back at the station to do the report. You also won’t have to try to recall details from hours ago or decipher handwritten notes. Simply speak to create a detailed incident report. It’s safer, more efficient, and more convenient.

Doing it in real time means more comprehensive reporting. This not only helps your cases, but it can also help in a court of law if a report ever gets brought up for a trial. This is because the details captured from a voice-to-text-generated incident report tend to be more detailed and comprehensive.

Why Should a Police Officer Use Dictation?

Police officers and detectives know all too well how many reports they must create in a month or even a week. This number can add up quickly.

Dictating reports using Olympus professional dictation devices means creating incident reports 3 times faster, but it also creates even more detailed and accurate reports. If a case gets brought to trial, it’s always good to have more details.

By using voice to dictate a report, officers also won’t have to wait to get back to the station where they have access to a computer, or if they have one with them already, they won’t have to wait until they have time to type up the report. They also won’t have to remember to send the dictation file to their transcriptionist.

This means details are fresh in their minds and they can dictate with ease. For example, speak into your Olympus voice recorder in the patrol car on the way to the next call. Then you can use speech-to-text software to transcribe. This not only saves time and lets police officers and detectives focus on other things throughout the workday, but it also decreases the stress of creating reports and gives law enforcement professionals more peace of mind.

Can Police Use Voice Recognition?

Any profession can use voice recognition and it’s especially helpful for law enforcement professionals.

Police officers and detectives are often interviewing multiple witnesses and listening to their own unique perspectives. With so many cases throughout the day, this can quickly lead to information overload. Taking some notes can be helpful, but it’s impossible to remember everything. Law enforcement dictation software from Olympus offers solutions. There is nothing more productive and proficient than dictating the report in real time.

Voice recognition can be used to open a report template in the Records Management System (RMS). Officers can navigate between fields and dictate the report from there. Do all of this at the scene three times faster than you did before.

Dictating is also safer. Instead of sitting in the police car focused on typing something into a laptop, officers can talk into their recording device and still have eyes on what’s happening around them.
