The Olympus DS-2600 is the latest offering for entry level dictation from Olympus. This new device maintains the core principles of the previous the DS-2500 - offering users a basic software package alongside a high quality recording device. However, the new DS2600 now offers Slide Switch Control functionality. Slide Control operation allows users to dictate in a familiar analogue style using a single wear-free slide control. This feature has previously been exclusive to top-end dictation machines - now the all new Olympus DS2600 is the very first machine to offer users a top-end slide control functionality at an entry level cost.

Professional Slide Control

The DS-2600 is the ONLY entry-level dictation device that provides users an intuitive slide switch control. This allows for fast and intuitive file editing, so you can be sure to create rich, detailed and accurate recordings every time.

What Speak-IT Say

"Users of tape dictation and older Olympus models such as the DS-2400 / DS-2500 will find the DS-2600 a familiar, modern upgrade with the addition of a slide control for creating and editing recordings. We recommend the Olympus DS-2600 in cases where file encryption and mobile sending are not necessary requirements. The supplied DSS Player Standard Software allows users to upload their recordings to a PC, to then be sent via email or shared via various third-party cloud storage applications." - Dave

DS-2600 Dictation Machine

the machine is designed to record your dictation in the simplest way possible. It is durable and very light and comes with a leather case to protect the unit. You can rewind your recordings and insert audio. The slide switch works just like one of the old style tape recorders.

Advised that the product I was ordering was no longer available and was recommended an alternative/replacement. This was received very quickly and the recipient is very pleased with the item - thank you!

Amazing Entry Level Dictation with the Olympus DS-2600

We are extremely impressed with the DS-2600's professional and intuitive record/edit functions. This is the first entry-level digital voice recorder with slide switch controls - making it the perfect device for anyone looking to make the switch to digital dictation. Slide Control operation allows users to dictate in a familiar analogue style using a single wear-free slide control. This feature has previously been exclusive to top-end dictation machines. The included DSS Standard Software allows you to manage your dictations simply and effectively, also offering users a basic interface for Dragon Speech Recognition.
