Also supported are encrypted DSS audio files allowing complete security of confidential audio when sent by the person dictating across the internet to their transcription typist, simply enter the password the dictator created for the audio file and start transcribing.

And no more buying cheaper software that doesn’t quite do as it says and with no support. The Olympus software is only sold by authorised Olympu Audio resellers and they are contactable so can support you if you have any issues.

My Mac doesn’t have a DVD drive, how can I install the software that comes with the kit?
No worries, we can supply you with a download link to the latest version of the software. (Approximately 80Mb). All you need to do is download and install the software then pop in your licence key provided in the kit.
I have more than one Mac, can I install the software on all of them?
The Olympus software is sold as a single install licence. So officially no, if you want to use the software on an additional Mac you will need to purchase another licence key. You can still share the pedal and headset between computers so no need to buy another kit. Just ask us for the price for an additional licence.
How is this different from the Olympus AS-7000 transcription kit?
The only difference is the software. The Olympus AS-7000 transcription kit comes with the Olympus AS-7002 transcription module software. Transcription module is Windows software and is more expensive that the Mac transcription software.
