The DS-9500 Digital Recorder

Mobile Dictation anytime anywhere with Wi-Fi

You decide when, where and how you dictate. Two microphones ensure flawless speech quality in every situation. Use the integrated Wi-Fi to share your dictation instantly with your secretary or speech recognition software. Just connect your DS‑9500 with your smartphones’ hotspot or WLAN router in your office and send your dictation right after you have finished it. The integrated microphones allow you to record in high quality stereo to record conference or interviews. Besides, the second microphone can be used to suppress background noises so that the main microphone can focus with a high directionality to the speaker’s voice. By this means your are enabled to create dictations as well for speech recognition anytime anywhere ‑ both in quite and noisy environments.


Speech Recognition with Accuracy, Clarity and Noise-Reduction

Intelligent dual microphone technology settings ensure optimization for many different recording environments. For example in a noisy environment such as an airport, use narrow directionality to ensure the voice is accurately captured. For conference rooms with multiple individuals speaking, use a wide directionality setting recording to accurately capture all presenters.

Professional Quality Studio Recording Built-in

The included studio quality pop filter reduces additional noise from wind and breath noise, encouraging more accurate transcription and professional quality recordings.

Motion Sensor and VCVA Technology

While the motion sensor allows the user to wake up the device by picking it up to immediately start recording, the Olympus VCVA technology automatically tracks pauses in a speaker’s dictation in order to save time, power and recording space. These features are easily customized and allow 15 different sensitivity levels, providing intuitive usage and power saving options for every user.

Shock Proof Body Improves Longevity

A reliable body design resistant up to a 1.5 meter (4.9-ft) fall significantly improves the lifespan of the device in heavy use environments. An optical slide switch reduces risk of mechanical failure.

Wi-Fi Compatibility and LAN Connector Included

Managing workflow and sending dictation via Wi-Fi accessibility provides increased flexibility and improved efficiency. Pairing with your personal hotspot or office network provides real-time file sharing with your transcriptionist. Status of transcriptions files can easily be checked on the DS-9500.
