Greetings,

I am very sorry if this has been asked and answered many times.

With DS-9500 do you have to use ODMS software?  Can you record in mp3 and not use ODMS software?

Best practice?  DSS files preferable over mp3?

If you get ODMS software can you use mp3 and not have it automatically start transcribing the audio files? Alternatives to ODMS?

Asking for a dumb friend.

Any imput is highly appreciated.

SM

1. With DS-9500 do you have to use ODMS software? 

2. Can you record in mp3 and not use ODMS software?

1. No
2. Yes
3. Yes
4. Yes

Details: MP3 (.wav) were designed for music and not ideally suited to speech recognition because it is not lossless fidelity, like DSS Pro, better known as DS2. DSS stands for the original 5 kHz limited frequency response and should not be used; even though it is available. DS2 (wideband) lossless fidelity is more ideally suited to all editions of Dragon from Ver. 11 on up. DS2 capability is licensed between Olympus, Grundig and Phillips; no other manufacturer. The previous manufacturers only include DS2 on their professional recorders that are designed for speech recognition. This may be because they are licensing the DS2 algorithms. Hopefully 1 of the reasons why you're looking at the Olympus DS-9500 is because you are looking for the best speech transcription work tool. All other recorders are limited to MP3 because there is no licensing but also not as good but OK. That's why you don't see a DS2 option on lower-priced recorders. Of course DS2 algorithms would not work well with music because of the 10 kHz range. The DS-9500 was designed exclusively for transcription via transcriptionists, Dragon or SpeechExec Pro.

The ODMS utility is included but you don't have to make it automatically download your recordings or for that matter, even run. We don't use ODMS because we have a preference for a more direct approach, which is Dragon's AutoTranscribe Folder Agent. We like this better because it runs unattended; no prompts. Just drop your DS-5000 into the included cradle and your automatic transcription works in the background. You even have the option of embedding a recording of your voice to the document. This gives you Deferred Correction (after-the-fact) capability.

If you don't already own an Olympus DS-9500, for Dragon transcription use, ONLY purchase from Olympus/Dragon certified resellers and not from jack of all trades resellers who may offer both products but are master of none. Unlike most manufacturers (other than Phillips) resellers are your only source of support. This is why they are Olympus  licensed. Official Olympus value added resellers are not even allowed to advertise on places like Amazon so if you find one on Amazon, there is no support and the DS-9500 is MAP priced (same price everywhere). Olympus will send you right back to the reseller if you call for support. And if that's not enough shameless advertising, we include our exclusive user manual which guides you Dragon processes; including setting up the AutoTranscribe Folder Agent.

With the auto transcribe folder do you create a profile for the dictation that goes into it? What I'd you use the ds-9500 like an external hard drive and have dragon transcribe. Do you create a profile for that?

Thanks

You can create a dedicated recorder profile but it is not necessary. If you purchased your DS-9500 or Dragon from us, you already have details on setting up the AutoTranscribe Folder Agent. If not, you can download the KnowBrainer Dragon Installation/Training Guide, which is complementary to our Dragon customers. The process is a little too involved to attempt to explain here and there are also a number of pictures which would require a lot of work on our part.
