has dramatically improved our handling of dictation. No more
misplaced tapes, no more loss of information due to occasional
defective tapes and most importantly great audio quality. Before
we changed over to Quikscribe, I sometimes dictated long tapes
with multiple projects, leaving my secretary with no flexibility
to access priority work on the tape.
My secretary sometimes struggled to get work out on time when
I produced a high volume of dictation. Now, I dictate into a
mike easily plugged into a standard port on my computer, and
I promptly send each of my dictation projects directly to my
secretary's computer with one click of my mouse. She can work
on a file instantly while I move on to other dictation. Our
turnaround time has increased tremendously.
We both love the automatic file notification indicator which
pops a message onto her computer screen when I send her a new
dictation project. We wouldn't think of going back to a tape
system...and our startup with Quickscribe was absolutely seamless.
It's the easiest to learn new legal software I've ever encountered.

Secretaries are saying .....
I have had
the pleasure of using the Quikscribe transcription system for
the last 6 months and have had to use it concurrently with an
old tape based transcribing system.
Quikscribe outshines the old system in so many ways. It
has no need for a physical transcribing machine, no tapes to lose,
break or distort, no need to remember to wipe your tapes or fear
running out of tape, clearer voice recordings using the fitted
microphone, and no need for continuous pressure on foot control.
Of course there are many new features that my old transcription
systems could not provide, like instant receipt of audio files,
quick keyboard controls, labelling of sound files with priority
and comments fields, unlimited sound file length, ability to insert
position markers, ability to cut and paste text within the audio
file by the author, allowing the typist to paste this text into
their current document and the list just goes on.

Quikscribe to be very friendly, helpful and eager to assist at

Virtual Assistants are saying .....
As a virtual assistant, digital transcription capability means
I can get more work done for more clients - no matter where they
are located. After a lot of research on the Internet, I found
the Quikscribe system, and it was by far the best in terms of
size, price, and ability to transcribe a number of file formats
- an important consideration given that I have audio files coming
from diverse sources.
I have been
a VA since February 2000, initially working part time, but in
the nine months that I have had the Quikscribe system I have
been able to increase my business to such a level that not only
am I now working full time in my business, but am contemplating
hiring subcontractors to assist me
with the workload. None of this would have been possible without
makes it easy for clients to send their work to me, without
having to rely on overnight post or couriers - which are the
only options available with tape transcription. This not only
saves costs, but also increases their efficiency and hence productivity.
One of the
claims of the VA Industry is that having a VA is just like having
someone in the next office. The Quikscribe digital transcription
system not only makes this claim a reality, but enables users
to take advantage of the other benefits of outsourcing work
to a VA including overnight turn around of work, reduced overheads
and lower transcription rates offered by VAs across the country.

Educational Institutions are saying .....
"Following comprehensive trial during 1999, TAFE NSW purchased
the Quikscribe Digital Transcription Training Program in 2000
for 90 colleges. The Quikscribe System makes transcription training
easier for teachers as the learning resources are available to
each student from the server and there are ample lessons to cover
the module requirements. It is faster to access lesson materials
and the audio quality is excellent as well as providing a variety
of speakers. Students are trained on a system that is relevant
to today's technology. The Quikscribe Transcription Program also
provides cost benefits because there are no tapes to replace or
broken transcribing machines to repair."

last twenty years that I have been a legal secretary, I have not
yet come across such a revolutionary system for transcription
of dictation until I was introduced to Quikscribe. There are no
more lost or misplaced tapes and no need to erase tapes. Workflow
management is greatly increased and the audio quality is superior
to any system that I have ever worked with before.

most important thing I can say about Quikscribe is that I find
them to be very reliable. If they say they are going to ring me
or E-mail me, they do and if they say they are going to send me
something, they do. Also, if they say they are going to research
something or they say they are going to work on a hardware/software
change request, they do.
too, they keep me informed of what is going on. I don’t have
to chase him!If something is lost in the mail, or they can’t
find an instruction book for me, they let me know. I also find
them to be very progressive and they look at problems laterally,
which I really like. They are always looking for better ways
to do things.
One of our
partners and his secretary trial 1 Recorder and 1 Player. They
both loved the software, but they both had some very good suggestions
for change requests to the hardware and software. All of these
change requests were passed on to them by telephone and/or e-mail.
Once they had discussed them with me, and then spoken to their
programmers regarding the software and/or hardware changes,
our change requests were promptly implemented or seriously considered
for future versions of the Quikscribe software.
our main change requests have been implemented, we have bought
a Quikscribe Recorder for every Solicitor in the firm and a
Quikscribe Player for every Secretary in the firm. Basically,
the Recorders and Players will just replace, one-for-one, all
of our present “dictation equipment” (incidentally, this type
of equipment has never changed, in all the years I have been
I am now
going to work on a change request list for a server version
of Quikscribe involving “Administrator Rights” to the software
i.e. who is typing what files, how many files each user is typing
and how long it is taking, who is forwarding which files and
to whom, etc. Also, things like Administrator Rights to “lock
out certain people” from forwarding files, etc.
these change requests will be a list of “stats” which can be
shown to the partners. They will be special rights to the software, which only the System
Administrator will have access to (i.e. as a means to control
the workflow throughout the firm).By the way they are keen for
me to work on this list of change requests, which is most encouraging!
recommend Quikscribe as a very reliable company who is extremely
capable with both computer hardware and software. I would be
more than pleased to discuss our Quikscribe set-up, with any
firm considering the installation of Quikscribe software.

There are many things about
Quickscribe that I like. It is very easy to Set-up and configure.
The ease of use and the reliability of the units. The support
I received has been first class in response time and updates and
they keep me updated on the latest software improvements and any
questions I have are answered very quickly.
One of our partners and his secretary trialed 1 x Recorder and
1 x Player. They both loved the ease of use and the way it made
dictation so easy. The old system we use is very hard to learn
and the time it took to train one new user I could have trained
4 with Quickscribe. The software interface is user friendly and
easy to understand.
A lawyer from another law firm recently stopped by and used the
software for a short period. She said that is was great and she
fell in love with it and wanted to take it back to her own office
and use it.
What I found that if you spend a little extra on purchasing good
sound cards, you are able get the excellent audio quality from
the Quikscribe, whereas if you use cheap sound cards you get background
I have found that Quikscribe is not only great for dictation and

Medical Professionals are saying
I have been using the Quikscribe System on
a daily basis in my allied private health practice for more than
six months. It has been a major and key factor in enabling my
practice to increase its efficiency, volume and quality of record
keeping. I have never written a testimonial for any product or
service before and am motivated to do so in this case due to the
quality of the product plus the at least equally important cheerful,
quick and effective backup service.
an Ex Dictaphone users has to say .....
I used the Dictaphone Boomerang system for the last several years.
At first, the system appeared to be very innovative--as there
really was no other competition. Over time, however, the system
proved to have many problems. Though the hand microphone unit
(which connected to the computer) was very good, the portable
dictation devices (such as the Trec) created for use with the
system were substandard--in fact, I was told by Dictaphone that
they had many problems with the units.
Because the system was designed to utilize the Windows mail system,
I could not upgrade our office computers to anything beyond Windows
98. Even with new computers installed with Windows 98 Second Edition
(which was getting more difficult to have installed on new computers),
we had problems using the Boomerang software--either for use with
dictation or for use with transcription. When the software worked,
at times, we had problems with corrupt files as well as losing
dictated files because of some "glitch" in the system.
Consequently, we were required to periodically do manual maintenance
(to "compact" and delete files) because of memory issues.
I found innovation at Dictaphone to be extremely slow. Moreover,
in my opinion, I did not get the impression that they had the
ability to keep up with current technology changes. By comparison,
Quikscribe is a powerful product with innovative features. What's
more, it was very easy for me to set up myself. Unlike the upgrade
Dictaphone product, Quikscribe does not require any dedicated
workstation or dictation server. Moreover, the Dictaphone product
is far more expensive. The people at Quikscribe have been very
responsive to our needs--and it is apparent that they are constantly
striving to improve their product. I do not ,in any way, regret
having changed over to the Quikscribe dictation system.

As a Virtual Assistant I am always looking
to improve the range of services that I offer. I have heard about
the Quickscribe Transcription System for several months, but kept
on procrastinating! I finally purchased the system and was very
surprised how quick and easy the installation was. I was doing
the built-in tutorial within minutes of installing, and can't
believe how easy it is to operate.
The User Manual is one of the easiest manuals that I have ever
come across. It is concise and extremely user friendly. I will
have no hesitation in recommending their service to my fellow
Medical Typists are saying .....
Quikscribe has saved my sanity. No longer
do I have to listen to indistinct audio tapes. With Quikscribe
I can hear all the dictation as clear as a bell - this is especially
important with medical terminology.
Using the Quikscribe Audio Converter (which
was provided free) allows me to transcribe almost any audio format
including MP3 and MP2.
Lastly the service and assistance I have
received from Quikscribe personnel has been marvelous and I cannot
recommend them or their product too highly.

I have been using the Quikscribe transcription
system for the 4-6 weeks and have had to use it concurrently with
an old tape based transcribing system and also with an Olympus
voice recorder. I can import the Olympus files into the Quikscribe
system and now only need to one footpedal and headset to operate
both. Quikscribe takes away the need for a physical transcribing
machine, there are no tapes to lose, break or distort and no need
to remember to wipe your tapes.
Quikscribe's features of instant receipt
of audio files, quick keyboard controls, labelling of sound files
with priority and comments fields, unlimited sound file length,
ability to insert position markers, ability to cut and paste text
within the audio file by the author, allowing the typist to paste
this text into their current document, are just fantastic.
Quikscribe has been very, very helpful at
all times and any time I had a query it was always answered promptly
and with great enthusiasm. I really love the Quikscribe system
and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. It's
a great product and very easy to use.
