Barristers put Telegos on trial

Barristers are being offered the chance to try out a new telephone dictation system at a subsidised rate.

The system was developed by Telegos, based in Barnard Castle, County Durham.

It allows barristers to dictate information down the telephone.

This information is then recorded at a central office and the completed opinion or conference note is either sent in written form to the barrister, returned on disk or transferred via e-mail.

Further information on the system is available from John Horne of the Bar Council's services and information technology committee.
