Dictation Records of Thin Plastic
Made by Ediphone, Soundscriber and Gray, these thin plastic more-or-less 7" discs were mainly intended for stenographic applications. Depending on the blank and recording machine, they play 10 to 15 minutes per side. Some need very specialized playback equipment, available here.
