Editing? Can dictation be paused, then go back part way and....

Hi,

Is it possible to pause dictation, "rewind" a short way, and then begin dictation again, thereby "erasing" an error, for example? I had hoped I could do some editing as I dictated, or by opening file in PC and doing so there.

Does anyone know if there is a recorder that allows this, w/o using program such as Dragon? Thanks so much

You can not do this with the Olympus ws-100, you need a dictation machine that has the editing function which allows you to easily insert, overwrite, partially erase files and continue on the same file, most of the digital dictation units have NEW FILE BUTTON , you will stay recording on the same file till you press new.
Look at Olympus DS-2300. Olympus DS-33300 or ds-4000.

How do you rewind while dictating with the Olympus DM 620?


To rewind, you simply push the rewind button. However, this does not rewind from the point you are at like a tape does, it goes to the beginning of the recording. Once you are in the play mode, pushing rewind will rewind from that point.

When pausing and playing the tape screeches. Already tried another unit (same model) and changing out tapes. Still screetches.


Hello not sure if you referring to the audio when you realize foot control the unit does auto backspace and the short rewind is audible if this is not your problem the unit has a bad motor probably you can send it to repair to this place
Send an email to service@tvps.com or call (800) 644-9525. Please indicate model, serial and detailed description of problem

As I am dictating it will pause on it's own and stop recording???


I think you have it set to VOX. Its a kind of space saving option. The device records only when there is sonic noise indicating there is something to record. It pauses recording automatically when no voice is detected (for 2 seconds). Is that what you mean?

Later it is a pain in the *** if you want to transcribe it onto hardcopy because there are no natural breaks in the conversation...just continuous dialogue. Switch off the VOX and it should record continuously. Me thinks????

Picking up dictation where we left off after playback DS 40 voice


Unfortunately with this recorder, if he hits the stop button and rewinds it will go back to the beginning of the file. He may want to look at our DS-2300 or DS-2400 recorders as they both have a feature on them of a NEW button which will allow him to stay in the same file until he presses NEW to create the next recording.

Telephone recording won't work


You need to have a telephone record adapter plugged into the back of the 3750. Then you press and hold the Tel Rec button until it begins recording.

Also check to see if the 'Vox' or 'VA' switch is on (voice activation). This will cause the machine to pause if the volume is too low.

Is it possible to rewind and overwrite dictation with Olympus VN-2100PC


Unfortunately with this device the VN-2100PC it is not possible to rewind and overwrite any dictations that were done. Each time the record button is pressed and then the stop button is pressed it will create a new file. They may want to look for a DS-2300 or a DS-2400 recorder as these devices have the ability to rewind and allow you to dictate over previously recorded information in the same file. There is a button on these devices called "New" that allows you to stay within the same file until you press New to start the next audio file.
