Roll With It

Talk To Me

Record dictation, meetings and middle-of-the-night flashes of brilliance with the Olympus D1000 Digital Voice Recorder. Unlike a minicassette recorder, the D1000 uses removable digital flash memory cards that record sound as PC-standard .WAV files that can be edited or compressed, allowing you to record up to 72 minutes on a 4MB card--perfect for long-winded presentations. The D1000's Write Protection feature prevents accidental erasure of files, which are automatically marked with the date and time. Olympus has teamed up with IBM to offer a package that bundles the D1000 with IBM's ViaVoice speech dictation software and a PC adapter card for almost instant transcription of .WAV sound files on a PC.
