The software comes with a convenient integrated transcription player with pause, fast forward and rewind options. Together with the configurable Philips foot pedal it allows for comfortable and quick transcription.

Individual sort and filter options for organization and task prioritization

Both author and transcriptionist benefit from individual sort and filter options to find dictations and documents even quicker and always stay highly organized.

Notification popup alerts for transcriptionists make sure no important new tasks are overlooked
