The Philips 2GB Voice Tracer 1500 Digital Recorder with Dragon NaturallySpeaking DVR Software supports both stereo MP3 and stereo PCM (WAV) recording formats, which enables you to utilize a variety of bit-rates ranging from 8 kbps to 1411 kbps. The Voice Tracer has a built-in 2GB NAND Flash memory, a USB 2.0 port for high-speed data transfer, voice volume indicator, microSD card slot and ClearVoice sound enhancement feature. It features dual stereo microphones, a 1/8" (3.5mm) microphone input and a 1/8" (3.5mm) headphone output as well.

The Voice Tracer comes with the Dragon NaturallySpeaking DVR speech to text software. It allows you to plug your recorder into your Windows PC and then quickly transfer your files via the USB 2.0 interface. Once transferred, your recordings can be automatically transcribed, which turns your voice recordings into text. Plus, unlike previous software editions, this software delivers up to 99% accuracy, which makes for a more efficient workflow.

The compact Voice Tracer is equipped with a dynamic 23mm front speaker that facilitates immediate, crystal-clear playback of recent voice recordings. The ClearVoice feature enhances the quieter voices that are more difficult to hear. You can also initiate recordings by voice-activation. During voice-activated recording, the device will automatically begin recording as soon as it detects a voice. When the voice stops, the recording stops. If the voice begins again, the recording will begin again until the feature is switched off.

The recorder has instant one-touch recording as well. This allows you to start a recording, even when the whole device is shut down, by simply holding down the record button for a moment and then when the unit turns on - it will instantly start recording. The Voice Tracer even has an easy-to-read 1.5" LCD display, which improves menu navigation speed. There's also a voice volume indicator for ensuring clear volume feedback. When you're away from the Voice Tracer, the keypad lock protects your files. The recorder is powered by two AAA batteries (included), which support up to 30 hours of recording in the LP mode.
