Recording Tips:


It makes it easier and more efficient for all if, when making your recording, you try where possible to follow a few simple guidelines most of which are obvious but in our daily rush to “get things done” we can easily forget:

  • Speak clearly and concisely.
  • Spell difficult names and place names.
  • Use a location where background noise and interference is reduced as much as possible.
  • Save your recording to the highest quality setting.
  • Try not to shuffle papers, write or work on your P.C. at the same time as recording.
  • Mobile phones can cause interference – better to switch them off when recording.

 

We use Olympus Digital Transcription kit and the DSS Player Pro V5 transcription software which can playback .ds2 (DSSPro) .dss .WAV .WMA and MP3 files.

    ...My requirements include organising meetings, preparing PowerPoint presentations and report writing. My deadlines are tight and the standard of submission must be high. I had not used a virtual secretary before and was not sure if this would work. However I have successfully worked with Janice Barnes and Virtual Secretary Services for over 12 months and would have no hesitation in recommending them to other clients. They are reliable, trust worthy, efficient and provide me with excellent value for money.
