The Olympus WS-series digital voice recorders firmly target business customers who need an easy-to-use recorder for exceptional stereo recording of meetings. 

The WS-series (WS-831, WS-832 & WS-833) has all the features you’ve become familiar with, including direct USB connection, built-in microSD slot for added external memory, extended recording time, and easy to use interface, with the addition of a few handy functions to give the new WS-series the edge over competitors. 

The new WS-series recorders feature Transcription Mode, which automatically adjusts settings for easier transcribing, including auto-backspace, fast playback and optimal skipping in fast forward and rewind.  Another handy feature is Voice Playback (available on the WS-832 and WS-833), cutting out all sections in recordings without voice so you don’t have to manually find the parts where something is said.  The new WS-832 and WS-833 also feature Voice Changer, which allows the pitch of the voice to be altered for greater listening comfort. 

Olympus has further enhanced the user interface by introducing icons instead of text, significantly improving user satisfaction with more intuitive operation, and two freely assignable function buttons, making locating finished files easier than ever. 

For a low maintenance, easy-to-use recorder which provides high quality sound, look no further than the new Olympus WS-series digital voice recorders.
