Functionality and performance is offered by the basic VN 731PC model. For beginners the new Simple Mode displays only the essential
information in large font and limits the menu options. Normal Mode offers full functionality for more advanced users.
The large, omni directional, low noise microphone records sounds from all directions with less noise and reduced breath sound. The
recorder is equipped with a built in stand on the back for convenient desktop use to reduce surface noise. Two modes have been
added to Scene Select for optimizing recordings of telephone conversations and duplicating cassette tapes.

Hi, I'm looking for a dictation machine that has the ability to convert to text. What document type is the text converted onto and can i play with it once typed? Will the VN-731 be able to do this? Is it easy to set up? What other machines are available ?

Is the voice recorder as good quality as a microphone level?..

Asked by: Jade
No, I am afraid not, this would not be as good as a dedicated Microphone, you would need a model like below for that sort of quality: http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/zoom-h2n-handy-voice-recorder-n31kr
