Consumer Dictation

Consumer dictation devices can expand your market as a reseller outside the office environment and into the average consumer market that includes students, writers, field reporters, musicians, and more.

Your customers who are accustomed to using professional dictation devices in the workplace realize how dictation devices can save time and increase efficiency and, frequently, they like to take advantage of those benefits in their everyday lives as well but don't want to pay for the higher-priced professional dictation devices.

Consumer dictation devices, like those made by Olympus and Philips, are made to suit the needs of the average user, meaning they are user-friendly, ergonomic, and budget conscious. For resellers, that means becoming part of a billion-dollar a year market that is asking for these handheld speech-recognition products.


Olympus manufactures consumer dictation devices and accessories, such as cases, cords, adaptors, and microphones, with quality and price points in mind for the average consumer. Olympus makes consumer dictation devices for musicians that produce superior quality recordings of songs, sessions, and gigs. Their other consumer dictation devices give students the ability to record lectures, meetings, group project planning sessions, and to make voice notes so they can stay on top of their studies and excel.
