Sony saved my sanity in transcription

Joan Smith, Amazon
17 January 2015
  • Summary: I have been using this device for about a year now. I needed it because I do a lot of transcription for law enforcement. I had previously been using Media Player where you have to use the mouse to start and stop the player. That was so time consuming. I finally looked into a foot pedal.

Easy to Install

Joan Smith, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: I received this before the expected date stated. I read the instructions carefully, as I always do. It was so easy to hook this up. I tried it on my XP computer first and it worked perfectly. I then hooked it up to my Vista computer and again, it worked perfectly.

Excellent product!

David Fowler, Amazon
24 June 2013
  • Summary: First, let me say that I am not very savvy when it comes to technology. After using micro-cassettes for dictation for 25 years, I finally decided to go digital. You need this for Sony digital recorders and the sound quality is excellent.

Very happy!

Janice Proffitt, Amazon
31 October 2011
  • Summary: I am very happy with this purchase. I have been using this transcription kit for one week and have had no problems at all. Installation and setup were a breeze, and it does exactly what I want it to do: play .wav files through a USB connection, start/stop with foot pedals, can slow down or speed up...

Not a good one

Stevie Hofer, Amazon
13 May 2011
  • Summary: The headset is very uncomfortable and the footpedal will not work with the program I need it for. I've been transcribing for 31 years and I am not happy about this product at all.

Software doesn't work

Cathy Porter, Amazon
12 May 2011
  • Summary: The software was burned onto a blank disc and it seemed to install just fine, but when ever I try to load the program, it freezes up and says "Not Responding". Feels like a waste of money.

So Far Not So Good...

Laura, Amazon
11 May 2011
  • Summary: This product is great in theory, but so far I haven't been able to use it. It does not appear to be compatible with my Sony ICD-UX71 digital voice recorder. It might have been nice if someone had told me that before I bought the thing.

Excellent

Stephanie Dee, Amazon
15 April 2011
  • Summary: I purchased this after using one a faculty member owned. The software is a bit buggy, but considering its function, does an excellent job once you figure out how to tweak it to your specifications. Would buy again for transcription.
