One of the tools I use for dictation is this personal digital recorder. I chose this one because it is Dragon certified and they play nicely together. Since I wanted the digital recorder to help me with my hands-free writing, playing well with my Dragon is important and the most important feature I needed.
I really like using this recorder as it is lightweight and it is pretty straight-forward to use. Simplicity is wonderful. I also like that the batteries seem to last for forever. The size is nice as well. I am able to comfortably slip this into my pocket and I use a headset with it. It’s made recording hands-free and convenient.
Using my personal digital recorder has let me break away from my computer and still get my writing in for the day. I can dictate my story and unload and reload the dishwasher. I can go on a walk. I can cook dinner. I am by nature a multi-tasker and this fits in well with that ability. It is a tool I highly recommend for the writer that wants to break free from always being tied down to the computer. It helps you to be free.
