Great product!
 
I am a doctoral student and I purchased this to help me transcribe hours and hours of interviews myself. I spent a lot of time researching recording/transcription equipment and liked the reviews on the olympus products. This kit is very easy to use and plugs right into my laptop. I also bought the Olympus digital voice recorder (WS-310M)which has incredible memory and quality recordings, and radio shack helped me out with a telephone adapter for phone use as well. I have not done transcribing be...

Olympus AS-2300 Transcription Kit
 
The installation went well, with connecting the pedal and installing the software quite easy. It is a good product. It does not get the highest of five stars for two reasons: 1) There could have been more documentation with the software, and how it related to my other Olympus software would have been helpful; 2)when using the software and pedal doing some transcription I got a blue screen. I hope this was just a one time glitch, but I am a bit anxious about it. Overall, though, a good p...

Excellent
 
This is a fine product -- BUT really unnecessary since the matching 2300 voice recorder comes with the same transcribing CD included in this package that allows you to listen, edit, repeat etc. simultaneously just with the mouse. Once the recording is loaded onto the computer, everything is available for transcribing. Earphones are also very good.

Does not work with Mac, even though specs say it does
 
This product, contrary to the specs, does NOT work with a Mac. The reference manual leaves out huge chunks of what you need to know to run the software, as does the embedded "help." I called the Olympus support line and this is an exact quote from the "technician": "Umm....... [long pause]." If you have a Windows machine, knock yourself out, but if you have a Mac, STAY AWAY.

Good Product, Great Price
 
My office purchased this after being quoted a similar product costing considerably more. Easy to install and use, this transcription kit has been a terrific value.

This product made my life as an Executive Assistant a lot easier
 
This is great for typing from audio transcriptions (which I do alot). The only thing is that I have to turn the pedal around so that the rewind side would be on the left side (I don't know why they put it on the right side).

Worst transcription pedal ever
 
While I love my Olympus digital recorder, and this is the only food pedal I could find that works with its software, this pedal is just horribly designed.First, the main center part of the pedal for "play" is not big enough--it is barely as wide as my (mens' size 6) shoe--so every time you lift your foot to hit rewind, if you don't put it back RIGHT on the center, you will hit rewind or FF again by mistake. BIG PROBLEM--this is the very core of what the pedal is for! I find I have ...

Easy to use
 
This was easy to set up and use. It has made transcribing the recordings much easier and faster.

Works fine but skimpy manual
 
Not bad at all. Nice solid construction, works like it should. Setup is simple, but a more detailed manual would not hurt. One snag in setup process was that you need to use the DSS Player serial number supplied in the box for the pedal to work - software itself is identical to what you probably already have installed, but you'll need to uninstall and then reinstall using new serial number. Very annoying, and documented nowhere.Also, just to keep you on our toes, th...

Works as advertised
 
Bought this unit to replace a failing transcription unit from Dictaphone. It was easy to install, and worked with the DSS recording program from Olympus with almost no switch over problems.
