Dictations playing through the wrong speakers

If you are experiencing an issue with dictations playing through the wrong speakers then please follow the below.

In the Olympus software you have the option to change the speaker output which is independent of what the PC speaker output is selected. Please see below on how to change the audio output.

PC Speaker: Selects an audio device available on your PC, if you have multiple audio devices then this will select the next available audio device. If you are listening to the dictations through a headset then you would select this option.

Olympus Device Speaker: Selects the Olympus recorder as the speaker if its connected to the PC.
