As an alternative to the digital dictaphone, most smartphones and tablets have voice memo apps pre-installed. Alternatively, Olympus has a free dictation app, available from iTunesTM (for iOS devices) and on Google PlayTM (for Android). You can also use the built-in mic on your PC or Mac.
NB:VA uses software such as Olympus Transcription Module and Express Scribe to transcribe most of the common digital audio and video formats. These include DSS, DSS Pro, WMA, MP3, WAV, CAF, DCT, DSP TrueSpeech, DVF, and DVS.
You can send your audio or video file to NB:VA via email or Dropbox.
The industry standard expects a recording of 15 minutes to take around 1 hour to transcribe, although this will depend on the quality of the dictation. Transcribing technical or poor quality recordings can take longer, as can those documents which require a lot of formatting.
