Mobile Dictation That Links With ODMS

This app does work - it requires the Olympus ODDS subscription service to enable the audio formats dss and ds2 and to encrypt you audio, essential for confidential dictation sent over the internet.

This isn't just another voice recorder or dictaphone app. Sure you can record your voice and email it in generic m4a format plus insert or overwrite audio. But this app comes into its own when used with an ODDS (Olympus Dictation Delivery Service) subscription.

ODDS opens up the "server" configuration on the app and allows you to record .ds2 or .dss audio, encrypted on the iPhone itself. You can then email or transfer the files via the ODDS cloud server to your ODMS transcription module used by your transcription typists. The audio will also include meta data like your Author ID and Worktype.

Also, if you have a new DS-7000 Air or DS-3500 Air digital dictaphone (or a standard DS-7000/DS-3500 with firmware v1.20 and a FlashAir card) you can wirelessly transfer audio from your pro recorder to your iPhone and send them via the app.

So there is a bit more to this app than you may realise. Search for "Dictate ODDS Australia" for more info on that feature.
