Olympus DS-3500 Professional Dictation Recorder Kit

The DS-3500 has been discontinued as of 04-04-2018

See the new DS-9500 which has full stereo conference recording capabilities.

Windows 10 / 8 / 7 / Vista / XP, Mac OS and Dragon Compatible!

With the advent of digital technology the tape recorder is no more. Enter in the Olympus DS-3500 Professional Digital Dictation Voice Recorder provides superior sound quality through a speech-optimized, mechanically isolated microphone; flexibility in recording modes, including conference and dictation modes; and multiple file formats—DSS Classic, DSS Pro, WAV and MP3. Through the included Olympus DS-3500 Dictation Management System, once plugged in via USB, the DS-3500 will automatically transfer recordings across the network or through email. The Olympus DS-3500 Digital Dictation Voice Recorder kit features 128- and 256-bit encryption for security (HIPAA medical use) as well as a 6 out of 6-Star Dragon Accuracy Score (for use with optional Dragon Naturally Speaking or Dragon Medical Practice Edition). The latest generation of Olympus professional digital dictation recorder kit is the most flexible hand-held recording system available today and will dramatically enhance your productivity and daily workflow!

The Industry Leading Transcription System.

Whether you need to transcribe your recordings yourself or have an office assitant manage them, you will love the Start-Stop UNIVERSAL. Click to learn more about the Start-Stop Universal.

The little brother of the Olympus DS-7000 from Olympus Dictation, the DS-3500 includes Olympus Dictation Software (ODMS Current Version 6.4, as does the DS-7000), and features the same great audio and workflow capabilities and only sets aside certain creature comforts, specifically, the DS-3500 has push-button operation rather than a slide switch and does not include a docking station. The DS-3500 does feature WAV and MP3 file formats which are not available with the DS-7000.
