If you use DSS Player Pro, either the dictation module or transcription module software from Olympus, a update to version R5.0.13 has become available. The small update is an important one if you receive audio (transcriptionist) or share digital dictaphones in your office as this bring DSS Player Pro in line with the very latest digital dictaphones recently released by Olympus – the Olympus DS-7000 (replaced the DS-5000) and Olympus DS-3500 (replaced the DS-3400).
Although R5 software at the previous version R5.0.12 was compatible with audio recorded on these new digital voice recorders in their default setting (recording DSS Pro .ds2 audio files), ODMS (Olympus Dictation Management System R6) has the option to encrypt/decrypt audio at 256bit. Older recorders like the DS-5000 and earlier versions of DSS Player Pro R5 could only encrypt/decrypt 128bit audio. Don’t worry, if you don’t encrypt your audio then your R5 DSS Player Pro software will be able to play the audio files from the new DS-7000/DS-3500.
