Olympus declared ODMS R6 Dictation & Transcription Module end-of-life as at 31st March 2019.

What does this mean?

  1. The software is no longer supported by Olympus or their resellers. If you have an issue you will be advised to upgrade to the latest supported version of ODMS which is R7
  2. No more updates or patches will be developed or released. The last and final release of ODMS R6 was version R6.4
  3. To ensure that your business stays secure in terms of cybersecurity best practice is to ensure that all your software is supported and patched

What should you do?

Upgrade your Olympus software to the latest supported version ODMS R7 by purchasing upgrade licence keys:

  • Olympus Part AS-9003 - Dictation Module (DM) Upgrade from DSS Player R5 or ODMS R6 to ODMS R7
  • Olympus Part AS-9004Transcription Module (TM) Upgrade from DSS Player R5 or ODMS R6 to ODMS R7

How do I know if I need AS-9003 or AS-9004?

This is defined by the module that you have installed based on the licence you you received with your Olympus eqipment, either for dictation or transcription. Olympus Windows software has two modules, Dictation Module (DM) and Transcription Module (TM). 

  • DM is the software that is supplied with the professional digital dictaphones. A valid original licence key which can be upgraded to ODMS R7 would start with the letters RD5 or RD6
  • TM is the software that is supplied with the transcription typing kits. A valid original licence key which can be upgraded to ODMS R7 would start with the letters RT5 or RT6

Yes, I have my original licence key so can buy my upgrade licence. How is the licence delivered?

  • Your licence key starts with the letters RD5 or RD6 buy AS-9003
  • Your licence key starts with the letters RT5 or RT6 buy AS-9004

Your licence key will be emailed to you automatically after checkout. The latest ODMS R7 software can always be downloaded from this link - https://dictat.es/r7 - and all the latest Olympus documentation can be found here.

I have my upgrade licence key now, how do I upgrade?

To upgrade to ODMS R7 you must have your original module (DM or TM) installed, either DSS Player Pro R5 or ODMS R6, using your original licence key first.

Once you have that installed you can then download and run the ODMS R7 installer, please install as an Admin user, which will recognise the old version and prompt for your upgrade key.

I have a DSS Player Pro R5 licence key that i'm upgrading to ODMS R7 on Windows 10. DSS Player Pro is not compatible with Windows 10 what do I do?

Correct it is not compatible with Windows 10 but must be installed with your original RD5 or RT5 key before you can upgrade. Just use your RT5/RD5 licence when installing DSS Player Pro but do not run DSS Player Pro once it is installed.

I have my original DSS Player Pro R5 or ODMS R6 licence key but I can't find the original install disk, where can I get a copy of the old software?
