The transcription module accompanies the AS-5000 professional transcription kit.

Why download and install the DSS Player Pro R5 trial version?

  • Maybe you have just upgraded to a new PC and can’t find your original licence key. With the trial you get 60 days to find it or purchase a replacement licence – no lost productivity.
  • Thinking about converting from analogue tapes to digital dictation and transcription? Have a look at the software and test it out on your computer and office setup prior to buying your digital dictaphones or transcription kits.
  • Desperately need to convert Olympus .ds2 audio files for playback in older Olympus R4 transcription modules or Express Scribe, dictation module will convert from DSS Pro .ds2 to .mp3 .wma .wav or .dss

Dictation Module (Olympus model number AS-5001)

This software is used by the person who dictates using either the Olympus DS-5000 or DS-3400 digital dictaphones. It is fully featured software and assists the person dictating by automatically downloading audio from their digital dictaphone to their PC. Not only that the software can automatically send your dictation audio files to your typist via either email, FTP or by dropping the files onto a shared network drive or third party file sharing software like Dropbox. Audio files can also be edited by the user prior to sending for transcription.

The Olympus DSS Player Dictation Module software is also very popular with transcription services as it will easily convert .ds2 audio files to .dss or .wma for load into older Olympus transcription kits or free transcription software like Express Scribe from NCH Software.

Transcription Module (Olympus model number AS-5002)

This software when used with a headset and USB transcription foot control (known as the Olympus RS-28) is used by professional transcription typists to start/stop/play/rewind audio as they type into their favourite word processing software.

Software Licence

Both the dictation and transcription module software are licenced meaning they require a purchased software licence key to function. If you would like to try either the dictation or transcription module in your business before you purchase a valid licence key then a free 60 day trial is available. Simply download the software and follow the special trial install instructions and you can see just how powerful the Olympus DSS Player Pro software is.

    I have followed the instructions for Olympus DSS player and now await an email for instructions.
    Thanks. I have previously bought the new Pro Express Scribe and cant get it to work on my computer at all. Its been a nightmare.

    Hello

    Thanks for dropping by. The instructions for installing DSS Player are now contained in the post, essentially just cancel the auto run and execute the msi file turning on the TRIALMODE switch:

    msiexec.exe /i D:\DSSProR5\DSSPlayer.msi TRIALMODE=ON

    DSS Player R5 has since been replaced by release 6. Olympus have changed the name also and it is now called ODMS (Olympus Dictation Management Software). A 60 trial version of release 6 is also available, you should use this version.

    Both R5 and R6 will convert .ds2 to .dss files for use in older transcription software packages like Express Scribe. The Pro version of Express Scribe does try to play .ds2 but I have heard of some issues. If you need to transcribe .ds2 audio files then it is worth the investment in Olympus ODMS to transcribe your audio.

    I hope that helps.

    I had Olympus DSS transciption module installed on my PC last year via a CD.

    I have bought a new computer SONY CONVERTIBLE ALL-IN-ONE which does not have a CD feature. How do I re-install the Olympus DSS transcription module again please? I have the licence number but cannot find anywhere online where I can downloand the module. Is there a way?

    Please advise.
    Regards

    Hello Vida

    You kept the licence key, perfect, this is

      the

    most important thing about DSS Player (R5) and ODMS (R6) as the CD can always be replaced but not the licence key.

    I have a copy of DSS Player Pro R5 that you can download, it is the contents of the CD. You can download it from here:

    Hope that helps !!

    @Dave Thanks so much for the link. I can’t seem to find the software for the Dictation AND the Transcription software. I have the licenses but that’s it. I know it’s Version 5 and I believe when the installer starts you choose either Dictation or transcription.

    Anyone know where I can find a copy?

  6. Dave says:

    Hello

    The dictation and transcription software is bundled together in the same software package. You do not choose one or the other it will be determined based on the licence key you enter.

    Licence keys starting with RD will install the dictation module. Licence keys starting with RT will install the transcription module.

    Hope that helps.

  7. Sandy says:

    My foot pedal is RS27. Is it compatible with the R5? What is the cost after the 60 day free trial? Thanks for your help.

  8. Dave says:

    Hello Sandy

    You would be better off going with Release 6 which is now called ODMS instead of DSS Player Pro. ODMS R6 is compatible with the RS-27, the RS-27 doesn’t get a mention as they are not available in Australia but I do know that they are compatible with release 6. ODMS replaces DSS Player Pro and is backward compatible with earlier Olympus recorders and the RS-27, RS-28 and new RS-31 pedals.

    Here is the link for the ODMS R6 download and 60 day trial install:
    http://idictate.com.au/2012/06/windows-olympus-odms-r6-try-it-for-free-dictation-transcription-module/

    At the end you will need to buy the Olympus part number AS-7002 which is the software CD and the licence key. In Australia they are RRP AU$199.

    I hope that helps.

    Could you advise on where we can obtain the latest software for the Olympus AS-4000 PC Transcription Software. We currently have a licence for Version 4 of DSS Player Pro Transcription Module.

    We are looking for compatibility with Win 7 x64 as we have upgraded from Win XP Pro.
    We understand from http://www.olympus.co.jp/en/support/imsg/vtrek/compati/win7.cfm#chk3 that:

    *3 The DSS Player needs to be upgraded to Pro R5.0.8.
    *4 DSS Player Pro R5.0.8 is required. Please note that the following operation may not work. The patch for the R5.0.8 will be provided at a later date.

    We appreciate any assistance you can provide.

  12. Dave says:

    Hello Brian

    You should get the latest Olympus software for dictation and transcription called ODMS (Olympus Dictation Management System), this replaced DSS Player that you referred you. ODMS is also referred to as R6 (released 6) and DSS Player Pro (release 5). You have R4 with your DS-4000. There is no upgrade path from R4 to R6, there is an upgrade path from R5. So you would need to buy the full software.

    The part numbers you need are:

    To replace your dictation module you need Olympus AS-7001
    To replace your transcription module you need Olympus AS-7002

    I hope that helps.
