Essential of Professional Digital Dictation Recorders – How it works guide

Are you interested in what happens behind the scenes?

1.Each dictation device can be customized with the Lawyers ie (Author´s name, ID or similar. Now the system will know automatically who created a dictation and when (because the device has an internal watch, too).

2.The Martel digital dictation management software can be set up based on your organizational structure: An account can be set up for all authors, secretaries and transcriptionists. The workflow between these workers are defined. Because the software offers many options, the software mirrors your workflow, so the doctor or lawyer has no need to change your work style.

3.After a dictation is done and the dictation device is put into the docking station, the dictations will be downloaded automatically. Based on predefined workflow, the dictations can be sent automatically to a secretary or transcriptionist. The setting can be set to automatically erase the dictations from the device after downloading. Dragon voice recognition also is a added technology for lawyers today.

4.Secretary Transcription Kits: The secretary can listen to the dictations via special PC earphones and control the play back via a PC footswitch. Individual settings (tone, playback speed, automatic rewind etc.) are possible. The additional dictation information (i.e. author, worktype, dictation dates, dictation lengths etc.) allows the secretary to efficiently organize the work. Dictations have different process statuses (i.e. pending, finished). Finished dictations will automatically be placed in the finished tray and the dictation will be erased from the dictation recorders worklist. Secretaries/Transcriptionists are able to do transcriptions more comfortably and are more in control of their work. This will benefit the dictator (doctor, lawyer, business professional), too.

5.The finished document can be automatically sent to a predefined person (i.e. the original author). There are several possibilities to exchange dictations and documents between dictators and secretaries / transcriptionists: Network, FTP, email.

6.IT and Office Managers are also part of the concept: The whole software and single users can be easily setup, maintained and updated.
