Olympus DS-9500 with Dragon®

The Olympus DS-9500 works well with professionals on-the-go who need to record their thoughts, notes, documents, and forms. Voice-to-text is revolutionizing the way people work.

The Olympus DS-9500 comes with its own software, the Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS). This allows you to download your audio recordings from the device onto your computer.

While the DS-9500 is one of the best voice recorders on the market, it cannot turn text into word documents. You’ll either need an assistant or a transcriptionist. If you decide to go this route, the AS-9000 transcription kit is ideal.

The Olympus DS-9500 is Dragon® Medical Practice Edition compatible. This helps automate the dictation and greatly improves workflow and saves time.

To use Dragon® with your DS9500, you’ll need to have a trained Dragon® profile and enable the voice recognition feature to configure the ODMS software to use with your Dragon® profile.

After the Olympus DS-7000 was discontinued, the DS-9500 became the next logical choice for those looking for something like the DS-7000.

  • 256-bit file encryption
  • Impact-resistant body
  • Optional docking station
  • Device PIN lock

You’ll be able to instantly send your recordings by email or folder transfer—from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. This means you don’t have to be tied to the office and you can work from home, or anywhere you prefer. The DS-9500 does come with a docking station and AC charger.
