Philips launches Pocket Memo 7800 series and iOS dictation app

Philips has launched two new devices and re-designed its iOS dictation recorder app with new features and interface.

The company unveiled its 7800 and 7280 digital voice recorders. Both devices have two high-end microphones which enable sound pick up.

The devices have lightweight stainless steel body and can be used single handed.


“The software helps users create a smooth work cycle between authors and transcriptionists and permits them to monitor the progress of their work at all times.” said Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions

The company also re-designed its app, now users can now download the new iOS Philips dictation recorder iPhone app 3.6, which enables them to record and securely send their memos, mails, reports and other documents.

The new app has a new user interface, and is more intuitive. The app now has the ‘set editing mode’ that allows users to predefine their overwrite, insert and append modes before using the dictation device.

Recordings can be processed by a transcriptionist, speech recognition software or Philips dictation workflow solutions such as SpeechLive and SpeechExec.

SpeechLive gives users full control over their dictation workflow. It also offers new transcription service, where professional typists can transcribe dictations faster.

The Philips dictation recorder app can be downloaded from the iTunes store. The company is also offering a free 30-day trial of the SpeechLive solution.
