1 - DSS (Digital Speech Standard) Recording
High-quality recording format provides superior clarity and compatibility with voice recognition software.
2 - Programmable Buttons
Programmable buttons that speed up reaction time increase the DR-2000's and DR-1000's flexibility and reliability. Instead of having more buttons than necessary, the DR-2000 allows users to program the functions they use the most onto one rear button and front A or B buttons. The functions include: Index Mark, Insert/Overwrite, Priority, launching an external program and more. The DR-1000 offers one rear programmable button and a front A button.

In addition to the programmable buttons, further functionality can be supported by combining any button on the DR-1000 or DR-2000 with the Shift or Ctrl key on your computer's keyboard. This function is supported by the included DSS Player software.

3 - USB Audio Class Compatible
Olympus Directrec microphones are USB Audio Class Compatible, so they can be used as a USB microphone or USB speaker when connected to a PC without the need for installing a specialty driver. The powerful built-in speaker provides hi-fidelity acoustic playback.
4 - Trackball USB Mouse Pointing Device
The DR-2300 and DR-1000 include a 360-degree mouse-pointing sensor providing fast, simple operability. The device is highly durable and reliable to help prevent it from breaking, wearing out, or sticking.
5 - True Slide Switch Control
The DR-2300's and DR-2000's "true slide switch" is contoured to the thumb for smooth control of record, stop, play and review functions all with the same switch.
6 - High Performance Microphone
Olympus Directrec dictation devices deliver stunning performance -- The DR-2000's and Dr-1000's highly sensitive, built-in omni directional microphones ensure that every detail is recorded, whether the device is being used from a distance or at a conference. The Directrec DR-2300, DR-2200 and DR-1200 deliver stunning performance -- a low-noise, directional built-in microphone guarantees ultra-clear dictation recordings.
7 - Easy Editing
Olympus Directrec dictation devices allow for easy editing of existing recordings by appending, overwriting, inserting, and erasing or partial-erase of recording.
