With features like the 4-Position Switch, Voice Activated Recording and Internal Recharge, the 488 allows hard working professionals to generate large quantities of dictation. Better still, the 488 makes it easy for everyone to work smarter. Its special End-of-Letter Index tone helps your administrator to transcribe your documents more efficiently. By adding a distinctive tone, it's easy to identify the start of each new piece of work, as well as the total number of documents, thus speeding up the transfer of speech-to-text.
