Secure but shoddy

Are you paying attention to the feedback? This software needs improving, on review of a file I cannot easily read the information in the file name - it takes more names than it will re show.

Ok, it seems secure. So that’s a major selling point, but it’s a quite shoddy piece of software, either from a company that’s not considering how it’s used or ignoring how it’s used. File naming should accept cut and paste. If I dictate several files, with a name of each case/ dictation it’s impossible as structured to read what I’ve written. You might need a better, searchable way of naming files or putting info. The search box is dark, text is dark, it’s unreadable. There’s a lag on starting dictation. It would be useful to have a way to mark a recording, between topics/ cases/ pieces - for me it’s individuals details on dictation. I want to send one file for all the people on one day. It’s not freeware, you update it very infrequently, work for your money!

Good but far from perfect

Would like if you could import a DSS/DS2 file from another device to work on or play! Seems the app is very limited especially for a company like Olympus.

One disappointment

This a brilliantly straightforward dictation app and so much easier than all the others I looked at. My only (big) grievance is that it only uses the AAC format which isn’t compatible with the formats at work. Were it not for this it would be 5 stars.
