Thanks to technological advancements, legal dictation can now be done digitally. The biggest advantage to lawyers is that they can dictate onto small, portable devices. Although analogue devices are still useful, digital solutions are more superior in a variety of ways. Digital devices are helpful to people who transcribe and to individuals who dictate.
Before a digital file is sent to a transcriptionist, it can be thoroughly edited. In addition, the lawyer can include a priority rating. In the past, attaching a priority rating was difficult because the technology was not capable.
Always read the manual for the dictation equipment. The manual provides detailed information about how the device works and how to take care of it.
Before starting the dictation process, organize all reports and papers. Dictations should be done in a quiet location so that the transcriptionist can be clearly heard. Ensure that there are no possible distractions nearby. To minimize other possible sounds, close all doors and windows and shut off all devices that produce loud noises.
A digital dictation device simplifies the entire dictation process. To reduce dictation errors, organize all paperwork thoroughly. Then, use the digital dictation device in a quiet environment.
