Compare Digital Dictation Systems



1 Some systems do not catch the beginning of dictation when voice activation is used, because of a delay in starting the recorder. This is known as “clipping”. Compare to other digital dictation systems Quikscribe avoids clipping by saving audio into a memory buffer as you dictate, and writing to disk as you go.

2 Some programs offer 40 bit or 128 bit encryption, the latter being industry standard. Quikscribe encrypts at 1024 byte which is 80 times stronger than industry standard, and perfect for secure client data transmission.

3 Some programs allow you to attach documents to the audio file, but these attachments are merely dumped in a bin that is attached to the audio file. The recipient has to detach the attachments before transcribing the file. Quikscribe allows you to insert text, graphics, and other files directly into the audio file and specifically at the point within the file that you would like the transcriptionist to reference it. There is no need to separate the attachments away from the audio file before beginning transcription.

4 While some programs allow you to send audio emails as WAV file attachments, Quikscribe does so seamlessly. Compare to other digital dictation systems Quikscribe compresses the audio file by a ratio of 10:1, making the file much smaller and saving tremendous amounts of disk space.

5 Load sharing allows two transcriptionists to work simultaneously on a longer dictation file when turnaround time is critical. Quikscribe automatically splits the audio file into manageable pieces so multiple transcriptionists can work with different parts of the file.
