Files can be stored in the Pending tray to be sent at a later time. Ideal if you are working out of cell area (inflight or remotely) or just want to hold the dictation(s) before sending them.

Sent files are kept in the Sent Tray, so if needed they can be resent to a different location or recipient or replayed to review with the typed document.

Send recorded notes or dictations to other email addresses my manually inputting the address prior to sending.

Data Security comes first

Company’s data is often its greatest asset. Once Olympus Dictation for iPhone or for Android is connected with ODDS, an organisation can benefit from a vast range of security features. Dictations can be recorded in DSS Pro format and sent with 256-bit AES encryption. This means that dictation(s) are protected even before they are sent via HTTPS or FTPS and cannot be listened to by unauthorised person(s) at any point in the delivery chain.

In addition, the Author can set a 4-digit security lock on the file, opened only by recipient typings in the same pin number.

Olympus Dictation Portal (ODP) 

Located in Finland, the Olympus dictation portal is highly secure and accessed through login and password control.  Administrators can access users' license settings, order additional licenses or move licenses between smartphones and authors. 


Seamless integration into existing dictation workflows

The audio format DSS Pro, an established industry standard for professional speech processing solutions, enables seamless integration and subsequent processing to get speech transcribed from all over the world.  For those using ODMS software, files can be automatically imported from emails directly into the typist tray.

Meta information such as author ID and work types are also stored in the dictation file, these options can be set as part of the initial App installation and setup, or added at a further date.
