Transcription kit is the companion 4 track transcribing solution for the DM246 Digital Court Room Recorder.
This transcription kit allows your court transcriptionist to listen to each track independently or all 4 tracks at one time. Because of the quality of the DM246's recordings, each person speaking is easily identified. Listen to the track with the judge, lawyers, or witness independently and without worry of inaudible portions.
Every other digital transcription kit on the market is only able to play 1 channel. This means it smooshes all 4 tracks from ANY recorder down into 1 channel that can't be separated. No isolating one person speaking at a time, and no selecting the specific microphone you need.
The exception to the rule is Martel's T147 four channel transcription kit. It works just like a normal digital audio transcription kit, adjustable backspace and with a foot pedal. But most importantly it can split the channels up. Finally there is a kit that can do what the old Sony BM-147 cassette transcriber did for the four track recorders.
You may be asking what the difference is between a 4-channel transcription software, and a regular transcription software. The main difference is 4-channel transcription software will play all four tracks at the same time and allow the court reporter to turn off three channels, listening to only one at a time. This is a key advantage, being able to isolate a judge, or a witness during a court trial, making the record more accurate.
Listening or transcribing the court record is very difficult at times. Often judges and lawyers are arguing, and not waiting for the other one to speak. This confusion, and simultaneous recording, makes transcribing the document very difficult for the court reporter. The 4-Channel transcription kit, allows you to listen to all four channels at the same time, or channel 2 by itself, three by itself, four by itself, or any combination of all four.
Four Channel Transcription software is an exclusive product of Martel.

When we recently bought a dm246 courtroom recording system we also got the 4 track transcription software. Since we have used it we have had no troubles. I like how simple the software functions I didn't have to read the manual. Its golden and the sound is clear to my ear. The flow of the recordings sound so clear to me. We have even added Martel wireless microphones system to the 4 channel recorder. Once again the sound from the courtroom microphones are golden to my ear.

I just received my new 4 channel transcription kit from Martel and they have redesigned the entire software. New syncing feature makes the files stay together permanently. The audio is perfect way to go. thanks Martel.

Our firm bought allot of the courtroom digital recorders DM246. To transcribe the 4 channel audio recordings we also bought the T147 4 channel transcription kit software with usb foot pedal. Very easy and straight forward. I am sure glad we don't have to lug around the only sony bm-246 tape recorders anymore.

This courtroom recorder transcription software was easy to install and simple to use. The research into courtroom recorder system and the price made the decision easy for our court. The DM246 is the replacement for the old sony 4 track conference recorder. The transition was smooth and the audio is perfect. I would recommend the T147 Transcription kit 4 channel software to any scopist or court reporter or courtroom clerk.
