The Smart Solution: DSS Player Software
Digital Flexibility, Digital Quality
T he DSS Player software enhances efficiency and
facilitates the editing, archiving and emailing of files. Thanks to
the clear layout, file information can be read at a glance to
improve identification and speed up the transcription process.
R ecording digitally makes life easier. Files can be
found in an instant and new details inserted to a dictation
later on. By using the high-compression, high-quality
DSS (Digital Speech Standard) format and removable
SmartMedia cards, the recording times are effectively
unlimited. Since these media have no moving parts,
they are also extremely stable and reliable so
recordings never deteriorate over time. That means
the user is assured high sound quality consistently whether reviewing dictations or enjoying music!
