Dragon Naturally Speaking voice to text
This VN-541PC has been bundled with Dragon Naturally Speaking Recorder Edition voice recognition software. This handy piece of software has been optimised to work with your Olympus VN-541 voice recorder and will help you save time by simply converting your recorded audio to text. Don’t worry about punctuation or spelling, as the DNS software will automatically convert spoken words into the correct format. This is great for verbally dictating emails or converting minutes into text from important meetings, all directly from your voice recorder.

Recall your thoughts
The Olympus VN-541PC Digital Voice Recorder is a great tool for recalling thoughts and ideas, creating memos or using as a portable companion for listening to music on the go. The intuitive control system is ideal for a first time user and extremely simple to operate. Just slide the recording button forward to quickly activate the voice recorder. The VN-541PC offers you up to 1,570 hours of recording storage using 4GB of built-in memory, making this recorder great for meetings or simply to remind yourself of something important.

Record with clarity
The Olympus VN-541PC Digital Voice Recorder is equipped with a single mono microphone for recording or taking notes. The microphone features noise cancellation technology to assist in giving you the clearest possible recordings. This is done by reducing ambient background sounds and low frequency noise to ensure you record only what you want to hear. Chose a recording style that best suits your intended audio: ‘music’, ‘talk’, ‘memo’ or ‘long play’, and the voice recorder will automatically adjust itself for optimal recording.

Connect to your PC
The Olympus VN-541 PC features a microUSB port which lets you connect your voice recorder to a PC or Mac. You can then transfer the audio stored to your home computer system to help you view and organise files stored on the recorders internal memory.
