Summary: I purchased this Analog Standard Cassette Transcriber with attachments in Sept.through Amazon and company that was selling the product. Started using it and it worked great. Next time I used it I could not get the foot pedal to work. Called the company that I bought it from through Amazon and they were absolutely wonderful.
Summary: The transcriber works well except I cannot get the speed as slow as I would like. I record on a slow speed so my tapes last longer and I'm not fooling around with lots of tapes per day. I transcribe with the slow-recorded tapes and have the speed level all the way to the left, and it plays faster than actually spoken, sometimes making it hard to understand what people said and there's no way to get the speed any slower.
Summary: I already knew this was a great transcriber having previously owned two others. I was worried buying a used product, so I was trusting that the product description said that it was in good condition with no need of refurbishment. I am very pleased with my purchase!
Summary: This is the first transcriber I have ever used. It was a bit un-nerving at first with all the features, buttons and ways to adjust sound speed and tone, not to mention the footpedal. Within MINUTES I was very comfortable using this product and knew I would be successful. I am VERY happy with this product and at such a great price, too!
