Dictate + Connect (Dictamus) and Sterling Transcription

Research Transcription

Dictate + Connect is the iPhone dictation app of choice for Sterling Transcription clients who dictate daily.  

Sterling Transcription and Dictate + Connect have partnered to provide clients with a seamless dictation and transcription solution which combines the best of today's transcription technology, with the ease of dictating on the go.  

This solution is the simplest, most efficient, quality-driven dictation and transcription solution available to professionals for daily use.  

This dictation and transcription solution is available to EVERY Sterling Transcription client who uses their iPhone or iPad for dictation.  

The use of this app, an iPhone or iPad and links to a Sterling Transcription client account means there’s no need to download your files to your computer, and then upload them manually to your secure client login for transcription.  Also eliminated is the need to email your dictations to your secretary for transcription.  

You don’t even have to use a dictaphone; and you can shake off the shackles of the office, because you can dictate anywhere!  

All you need is an iPhone, the Dictate + Connect app (paid version) and a client account with Sterling Transcription.  

The app is available for less than £13 from the Apple iTunes store.  There is a free version of this app which has all the functions of the paid version, and is available to test out first; however the free version has a limit of 5 dictations, each max. 30 seconds long.  

How to get started:

  1. Download the app from the Apple iStore.  

  2. Self-register as a new client with Sterling Transcription (if you are not already an existing Sterling Transcription client).

  3. Go into the Dictate + Connect App on your Apple device.  Press the top left hand cog wheel (settings). Press "add sharing destination", scroll down to the bottom and press "UK", then select "Sterling Transcription" in the list as your shared destination.  Enter your Sterling Client username and password when prompted.  

  4. Start dictating!

  5. Once you've finished dictating, click the send button, and your files will be automatically uploaded DIRECTLY to your secure Sterling client account.
