I have been a very satisfied user of Legal Easyís digital dictation system for almost a year. I was tired of my old cassette-based system -- even though the equipment was high-quality, service calls were necessary every several months, and it was a constant hassle dealing with the tapes.
I am a solo practitioner with one secretary, and our computers are linked on a local area network. With Legal Easy's digital dictation system, dictation has never been easier. I start by clicking the "Dictate Report" button and give the dictation a meaningful name which matches the relevant client-matter file. I use my foot pedal to stop and start as I dictate hands-free to a microphone that sits on top of my computer monitor and is plugged into the sound card on my computer. When I'm done dictating on the file, I put it in my out-box for my secretary to pick up. A message pops up on her computer screen telling her that there is dictation ready to be transcribed, and she periodically retrieves the files from my out-box, transcribes the dictation on her own computer using a foot pedal and a headset hooked to the sound card, and returns the files with completed dictation to me. If any questions arise, the dictation sound file can be retrieved if necessary. I can't imagine handling dictation in any more efficient way.
I almost never have a need to dictate away from my desk, so I have not yet invested in a separate digital recorder. However, if the need should arise, I am aware that I could use a digital recorder and then transfer the sound files to my computer for transcription using the Legal Easy system. Ė

Since we implemented Legal Easyís digital dictation product, we have increased our productivity greatly. I donít have to leave my desk to deliver my dictation to my secretary and she doesnít have to mess with mini-cassettes cluttering up her desk. My secretary likes the CD quality sound as opposed to the scratchy cassettes. We are saving money by not having to purchase expensive transcription machines and saving my valuable time. I hope everyone who is tired of mini-cassettes tries Legal Easyís digital dictation. Their tech support is fantastic and their prices are ridiculously low. I canít say enough good things about this product, just try it.

Digital Dictation has been a great addition to our firm. The ability to quickly and seamlessly download digital files to our staff for transcription, as well as the ease of operation makes the system a great time-saver. Legal Easy's customer support was prompt and helpful in answering questions and solving software issues. Our old cassette dictation system has been relegated to the dustbin of the 20th century!

I cannot thank Legal Easy enough for your Digital Dictation system. Everything is working better than I ever expected and it could not be any more user friendly. I must admit that at first I did not think that I would use the equipment that much, but with the Olympus portable recorder and the ease of it's use, I find myself using it all the time. We are already seeing the results in that I am for the first time in a long time close to catching up on my work. Thanks also go to your team that installed the equipment and taught us about it's use, they could not have been more helpful. Thanks again for everything and good luck with all of your great products.

I have found Legal Easy to be user friendly. It allows me to know, with instant precision, the value of the marital estate and with the click of a button I can prepare a separation agreement in accordance with any proposed spreadsheet. I have also found the program to be especially valuable in contested cases given the ease by which exhibits can be produced and amended by keystroke.
