Transcribing notes is a pain for everyone, whether you’re a journalist, a student, a doctor or a lawyer. This Philips dictaphone promises to ease the burden of turning voice into data by bundling a copy of Dragon’s Naturally Speaking speech recognition software to automatically transcribe any recordings.I’ve been familiar with Naturally Speaking since its earliest days when accuracy was limited; recent versions generally work very well once the user has ‘trained’ the software to recognise their individual speech patterns and vocal eccentricities.So that part of the equation is pretty much covered (unless you speak with something... read full article

Oh I so need one of these, but it's a bit hard to believe that it would work brilliantly for my needs (I'm a student), given that so many of my lecturers have accents that are hard to understand on the best of days...

I still have a tape style dictaphone, which has been commandeered by my kids who at the age of 5 and 7 , love the sound of their own voices.... loudly and all the time, so we now get to hear everything twice.....aaaaaggghhhh....Win inception tickets.... yes please

I'm just glad that things have moved on from recording on tapes to digital....when I first started work I had to get used to fluffing around with tapes all the time...so anything digital is a bonus ;) But seriously, I think I can handle not having a "Mac-like" simple user interface, as long as once I have figured out how to use it there aren't too many unnecessary button clicks required. The main thing for me is bundling the voice recognition with the dictaphone itelf, which seem sliek it will save a whole extra step in the tranliteration phase. I'm very familar with Dragon, it has evolved into quite a decent product (once trained properly, as the article says)...so I might look into upgrading my dictaphone to an "all-in-one" device like this if it will save me time and hassle. I'm about to start a writing project (personal, not work;))...and I will need to constantly review my work as it gets transcribed, so yeah...an upgrade may well be in order ;)

I think everyone needs to poach an apple employee or two... or even if they are to stingy to flash the dollars required at least go buy an apple and rip it to pieces and find out how it does what it does... so well.

This would be just the thing for Uni lectures. Might save on serious writers cramp.

the Problem is that you train it to your voice so if your using it for lectures the voice to text program is not that accurate. but its good if you want to just record your voice still accuracy is 80% tops

Who needs a dictaphone, when you already have women? Women always remember important dates and events...... Always. ^_^

Gosh I so need something like this! I take minutes and don't do shorthand, takes me forever to read my own writing the next day, or should I say scribble - and then I miss half of it!

Not just for professionals, all of us have "upped" our busy lives in the last decade, I am constantly needing to remind myself of things to do and post its only work for so long :)
