Discretion remains the watchword. It is good to be discreet so as not to disturb your neighbor or cause any offence. But sometimes the material you are dealing with, whether it is sensitive or loaded with expletives or filled with objectionable statements, simply need to be heard if you will. You can get around that by way of wearing a pair of transcription headsets. None the wiser as they say. No-one near to you needs to hear a peep or a sound. And it is a blessing in disguise for you as well.
It is a blessing for you because all surrounding sounds and physical movements are blocked out completely. You are able to zone in entirely to your work. You are not disturbed and you are solely focused. Hardly an error can be made in this manner. Every last syllable under review by you can be accurately transcribed. Legal documents are to the latter. Accounting and financial reports or statements are one hundred percent accurate with not a single digit out of place. And furthermore, the use of your digital transcription set allows you to cover more ground.
You would need to consider the professions to appreciate the point being raised in this note. For instance, you could be enrolled in the academic professions or working on a heavy manuscript, fiction or non-fiction, it now makes no difference. You are able to continue with your walkabouts and the moment inspiration strikes, you simply switch on your device and dictate your thoughts into the microphone. There is no need to fumble about in your bag for pen or paper or even your tablet. And by the time you are back in your study, you will not have lost a single train of thought.
