This recorder does not offer a security feature. The DS-5000id offers a biometric scanner and encryption, I suggest looking at this recorder if security is of the utmost importance.

Question

Does this recorder have the capability of rewinding to where you stopped recording and pick back up from there?

I work for physicians who are interrupted quite a bit during their dictation. When they stop recording in the middle of their dictation they need to be able to go back and hear what they just recorded so they can pick back up at that spot and go from there. Does this recorder have that capability?

This device does not included the ability to append files. Once the recording is stopped the file will be closed. This is a function primarily offered on a professional dictation recorder.

Question

Can you burn the recordings to CD, or transfer them to iTunes?

Can you transfer the audio recording to a PC and then burn it to a CD without having to convert the file type? Can the audio file be imported to iTunes so I can put it on my iPod?

VCVA or Voice Activation will start and stop a recording based of the sound that is present. If a person begins speaking, the recording will start, the recording will pause when the person stops speaking.

The microphones are located on the top of the recorder. If these are raised above the rim of the pocket, I expect the quality to be excellent.
