Digital Dictation Test Drive

I am test driving new digital transcription software called Quickscribe.  They say about their own product ....

Quikscribe is the world's most advanced digital dictation / transcription system designed. It is capable of real-time non-destructive editing within a RICH audio file format called an 'Intelligent Audio File' (IAF) . What this means to you is, as an author, you can dictate, instantly 'Undo' and 'Redo' audio edits and seamlessly cut and paste text, spreadsheets, images, documents, templates, e-mail addresses, URL's etc into a single digital dictation file.

All other digital dictation / transcription systems focus on 'work-flow' and have ignored the actual 'work-process'. As a result they only use PLAIN digital audio (e.g. wav, dss, voc etc) which allows voice instructions only, limiting your productivity because it provides you with no new capabilities. We believe you should only change to digital dictation when you can improve both the 'work-flow' and the 'work-process' simultaneously in your organization.

In summary, the Quikscribe Transcription System makes document production faster and smarter. All other digital dictation systems simply automate the inefficient traditional tape based paradigm work-process.

I played with the recorder for an hour or so before I left work.  I dictated some notes to Jenny and sent them to her by email [there is a network feature I have not played with yet which will provide a software based transfer systems]. 

On Monday, Jenny will use the player to transcribe my dictation.  I also dictate to a .wav file which may even play through this web site.  I would like to send .wav files with my oral summary of medical records, depositions etc.  But I don't plan to write them up.  I want to store a lot of data as audio.  Each audio can be saved to a well named file for future reference.
