The Basics of Any Digital Dictation System

Digital dictation systems are run by computers which have theability to digitally capture and preserve sound. The software on the computer maintains several types of records in its database.
First, for security purposes, there is a table listing those people who have permission (access) to use the digital dictation system. These include:

  • People who dictate into the system.

  • People who transcribe dictation from the system.

  • People who generate reports using the digital dictation system's database.

Each person in the security table will have a unique access (PIN) number which allows entry into the system. When someone logs on to the digital dictation system, this identification number tells the system who is dialing in and whether that person is a dictator, a medical transcriptionist, or a system administrator.
