DRAGON NATURALLYSPEAKING MOBILE LEGAL SUITE COMPONENTS
The new Dragon NaturallyMobile recorder was specially designed for optimal speech
recognition quality. It incorporates a high quality built-in microphone that can be used
in most settings. The recording is stored digitally in a special compressed format that,
unlike some other compression formats, contains all of the information needed for accurate
transcription. The recorder weighs under four ounces (excluding batteries), is slim and
compact enough to fit easily in a shirt pocket and can be held comfortably in the palm of
a hand. The Dragon NaturallyMobile recorder has the flexibility of a professional
dictation device, including a built-in speaker, multiple customizable folders, easy
scrolling between recordings, time/date stamping, and a back lit LCD display.
The recorder can hold up to 40 minutes of dictation with its built-in memory. An
additional 20, 40 or 80 minutes can be added with removable memory cards of 2MB, 4MB, or
8MB respectively. The memory cards, which are the same type used in many digital camera
devices, are conveniently and widely available at camera and consumer electronic stores
for as low as $39.95 US.
