Voice recorder

Focus on what’s important

with a professional dictation solution

Specifically tailored to professionals’ needs, the Pocket Memo 9500 dictation recorder’s advanced design and technology ensure crystal-clear sound quality and unparalleled ease of use – all packed into a robust full metal casing. With the included SpeechExec Pro Dictate software, a simple integration into your everyday document workflow is guaranteed.

SpeechExec workflow software for efficient data management

The SpeechExec Pro software organizes the workflow of dictation files and resulting documents between author and transcriptionist, and allows you to monitor the status of your work.

Ergonomic slide switch for efficient one-thumb operation

With the professional slide switch, you don’t have to change your working habits and can enhance your dictation workflow. It offers a fast response and is designed for single-handed operation.

Professional editing functions for easy file revision

Easy and quick file editing (insert, overwrite, append) via convenient slide-switch operation.

High-quality microphone for accurate speech-recognition results

The unique high-quality built-in microphone delivers increased recording sensitivity and enhanced sound quality.

DSS Pro file format for optimized voice recording

The .dss file format is the international standard for professional speech processing. Offering outstanding audio quality for recorded voice, .dss files allow a high compression rate and reduce file size, network traffic, and required storage capacity. The format also allows additional information, such as client/patient name or document type, to be stored in the file header, further facilitating file organization.

USB dock for fast battery charging and easy transfer

The Pocket Memo digital recorder can be fast charged through the USB connection to your PC. This gives you the assurance that your recorder will always be ready to work when you are. Furthermore, your files will be transferred to your PC automatically.

Intuitive menu control with "smart buttons"

Two “smart buttons” let you scroll through the menu options and quickly make selections. Navigating through the menu to assign work types and other commands is fast and intuitive.
