The Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital is looking at saving money by having letters typed in India.
The hospital is to run a trial with the Oxford-based Alden Group where inhouse doctors' notes will be typed and compared to outsourced dictation.
The company employs science graduates in India.
The hospital said it will compare like for like in terms of cost and quality and is hoping for 98.5% accuracy in the four-week pilot beginning in July.
The James Paget Hospital in Gorleston said it is also considering contracting out its services.
