Lost many important recordings

GassmanPA Law Firm

I have used Olympus for dictation with good results for many years,
but recently my phone based Olympic app, which we paid for, lost
several very important and long dictations what are taking me many
hours to recreate, because I have to go back and review documents
and find mark ups. I would definitely recommend not using this
product without understanding this risk.

The company informs me that the phone no longer has the recording
when it is sent, and that if the e-mail sent does not make it to the e-mail
address the recording is gone. So your recordings are only as secure
as the internet system and internet, so good luck.

I recommend using a system where the phone retains the data until
you voluntarily delete it.

I am very disappointing in this apparent flaw, and wish anyone trying
this system the best.

Truly deceptive


Nice dictation app if you want something that WILL NOT work with Olympus ODMS software. After I downloaded the app, I tested and liked the way it worked and thought I could avoid buying the $499 Olympus recorder to go with the $349 Olympus transcription software - WRONG. It records in a format not usable by Olympus transcription software. However, I was able to download the Recorder Pro app, and it works perfectly with the $349 Olympus transcription software. With Recorder Pro I can email mp3 files to my secretary for her to type. The Olympus Dictation app is getting deleted after I write this review.

Excellent, works for me

Very good alternative to the recording device, easier to move files. Would be nice if not sent files (first attempt) did not go to the Sent folder, otherwise the user has to make a copy to resend. It takes space and confuses file management.
