Dictation solution provider Grundig Business Systems is launching a new dictation microphone, the DigtaSonic xMic. Following a detailed ergonomic study, the microphone was designed to enable users to keep their hand low and supported rather than having to constantly lift the device up to speak, according to the Chicago-based firm.
The device is weighted to sit more comfortably in the palm, Grundig said, and it features a new black ‘Soft Touch Composite’ rubberized coating. Also incorporated into the microphone’s design is an extra-wide slide switch for one-handed operation, enabling longer dictation sessions without discomfort or strain, according to the firm.
Users can continue using the mouse while at a PC, as the microphone includes an integrated “Track Point” roller ball control with two mouse buttons on the rear. In addition, the microphone can be tailored to individual needs using Grundig’s AdapterServer tool. This enables users to assign up to 22 PC controls or dictation controls to the slide switch positions and function keys.
