AS-7000 Transcription Kit


The AS-7000 Transcription Kit combines with the DS-7000 and DS-3500 professional dictation systems – or other Olympus professional digital voice recorders – to provide a complete, end-to-end business solution.

Featuring a redesigned, four-button foot control pedal, headset and next-generation Olympus Dictation Management System (ODMS) software, the AS-7000 is designed to be integrated into the workflow of any office system to significantly streamline data sharing and distribution of dictations between professionals, departments and office locations.


Special email and FTP functions allow dictation files to be automatically routed to predetermined locations or addresses upon downloading. Dictation files are automatically sorted by sender upon receipt, and document files are automatically entered into the workflow.


Created document files are automatically managed in association with dictation files (Windows only).


DSS, DSS Pro, WMA, MP3 and WAV/AIFF audio formats can be played in the background when another application – such as word processing software – is running.


A redesigned, ergonomic, four-button footswitch allows for hands-free control of the playback process.

Works With Dragon NaturallySpeaking
Legal Left_140x140ODMS Olympus has integrated features to link in with Dragon NaturallySpeaking (Professional version) from Nuance to further increase transcription productivity. For single speaker audio (only one person dictating in an audio file) let Dragon do all the hard work and transcribe the audio for you. All you will need to do is proof the transcript saving you hours of typing time.  Note: Dragon NaturallySpeaking Professional is sold separately.
Expanded FTP Support
The next-generation AS-7000 Transcription Kit supports passive mode and SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocols (Windows only).
Enhanced Compatibility
The AS-7000 Transcription Kit features support for Citrix and Terminal Service, improved compatibility with Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking software (Premium/Professional & Legal versions) and file sharing via ODMS and Olympus DSS Player Pro R5.
Improved Transcription
Specialized transcription tools include background dictation notification support.
