Olympus RS32 - 3 Button Hand Controller For Digital Recorders/Transcription



Perfect for the new generation of transcription typist who have grown up not using a foot pedal. The hot-key transcriptionist will find the ergonomic design of the RS-32 more comfortable and the ease-of-use tapping dedicated audio controllers a better experience than the hot key when using Olympus ODMS.

Packed with advanced features, Olympus’ new RS-32 Hand Controller is a multi-function device that gives transcriptionists and Professional Dictation System users (Windows only) hands-on control over their files.

Add ergonomic transcription functionality to any standard keyboard. Improve efficiency for non-footswitch users. Increase the functionality of your DS-7000 or DS-3500 handheld voice recorder by using it as a tethered remote control (Windows only). However you deploy it, the RS-32 Hand Controller makes Olympus’ industry-leading dictation and transcription equipment and software even better.
