Pacific’s Direct Dictation Methods – At Your Fingertips!
Direct dictation eliminates the need to manually upload audio files to an individual’s secure client transcription account, which can be time-consuming. Pacific Transcription offers medical and legal clients two direct dictation methods which make dictating safe, secure, easy-to-use and legally compliant.
What are these direct dictation methods?
The direct methods of dictation are:
- Dial-in dictation, and
- Direct dictation using the Dictate+ dictation app (iPhone only) and a secure online transcription account with Pacific Transcription
About the direct dictation methods
Method #1: Dial-in dictation
Dial the dedicated dictation phone number from any phone to record your dictations directly onto Pacific Transcription’s dedicated dictation server.
To access this service you need a four-digit pin (Author ID and Security Code). Just contact Pacific Transcription to secure your dedicated pin. Pacific staff will also supply you with Pacific’s secure dictation services brochure, which includes handy dictation hints and a step-by-step guide for dictating, including dictation keypad commands, and the phone number to use. Once you have this information, simply dial the dictation line and start dictating! It really is that simple.
When you end the phone call the dictation file is automatically and immediately queued to be typed. For information on transcription costs please ask our friendly staff for a copy of Pacific’s Professional Rate Sheet.
Method #2: Direct Dictation using the Dictate+ dictation app (iPhone only)
In 2012 Pacific Transcription teamed up with Jotomi, the creators of Dictate + Connect, to launch a direct dictation option for Pacific clients. In 2021 Jotomi released an updated dictation app, called Dictate+. This direct dictation option means every Pacific Transcription professional client who used their iPhone or iPad to dictate has access to a seamless direct dictation to transcription process.
Almost a decade later and with a growing number of Pacific’s medical and legal clients using this direct dictation method, the Dictate+ partnership with Pacific means we’re on the ball so our clients can keep ahead.
It’s easy to get started with Dictate+. First, download the paid version of the app from the Apple iStore. The paid version is a monthly subscription. Make sure you already have a secure account with Pacific. If you don’t, simply self-register as a New Client to obtain your Pacific username and password.
Contact us and request a copy of our Dictate+ Set Up Guide. Setting up Dictate+ and linking it to your Pacific client account takes about two minutes. Now, start dictating!
Once you’ve finished dictating click the send button, and your files will be automatically uploaded directly to your secure Pacific client account, and Pacific will transcribe the audio for you.
The Dictate+ professional dictation app has all the key features of a sophisticated dictaphone, including rewind, overwrite and insert.
