Dictaphone Careers & Info

Current CEO: Paul Ricci

Status: Active, currently a division of Nuance Communications since 2006

Dictaphone Healthcare Solutions is a division of Nuance Healthcare. The company is based in Stratford, Connecticut, with offices throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Europe. The company develops hardware and software for dictation, voice processing and voice management systems. Dictaphone’s main market is hospitals, but it also serves other markets including education, public safety and the legal and insurance industries.

Dictaphone has a long history. It was formed during the early days of human voice recording in Alexander Graham Bell’s Volta Laboratory. Originally a division of Columbia Graphophone, it was sold in 1923. At that point, the Dictaphone Corporation was formed.

Dictaphone was an industry leader throughout the 20th century. Its involvement in wartime production led to inventions in voice logging products that were later developed for commercial and public use. It developed the first portable dictation machine, the Dictet, in 1957, and continued with the development of innovative products through the 1990s.

Dictaphone was acquired by Pitney Bowes in the late 1970s but operated as an independent subsidiary. It was sold to Stonington Partners in 1995, then to Lernout & Hauspie (L&H) in 2000. Shortly after, both Dictaphone and L&H filed for bankruptcy. Dictaphone was sold off and became an independent company in 2001.
Dictaphone sold off some of its own operating units in 2005 and 2006. In 2006, the company was purchased by Nuance Communications for over $300 million.

Dictaphone benefits are comparable to other large companies. As part of Nuance, employees receive benefits including stock options, 401K and full health benefits.
