New speech-to-text solutions

Philips speeds up users’ daily workflow

Speech Processing Solutions, the world number 1 for professional dictation solutions, is proud to announce very positive feedback on its latest voice recorder, the Philips SpeechAir, and the SpeechLive cloud solution, which now also offers speech recognition.

Both SpeechAir and SpeechLive are ideally suited to professionals who are often on the move and do not always work from their usual office workplace. Ingo Bischof, MBA, Managing Director of IVAM Real Estate, is delighted with the advantages of these two solutions: "With Philips dictation solutions it is possible for us to log and record issues in the properties that we maintain significantly more quickly. The recordings are then sent to our back office, saving us a considerable amount of time, as transcription can begin before we return to the office."

Exceptional recording quality and intuitive slide switch recording control

The SpeechAir is equipped with three professional-quality microphones providing ultimate sound quality in any recording situation. Background noise is filtered and the voices are recorded in perfect quality. This ensures excellent playback and speech recognition results. At the start of the year, the SpeechAir was awarded Nuance Communications' rating for best recording accuracy. The slide switch provides an efficient and intuitive user interface operated with just one hand. Recordings can be started, paused, stopped, played back, rewound and fast-forwarded using the slide switch.

Stay connected with the Wi-Fi and Bluetooth functions

The Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections allow wireless transfer of finished recordings and access to the customer's data in the respective document management system, email or calendar. Dr Doris Ulreich-Laussermayer, a doctor in obstetrics and gynaecology, appreciates this function. "I can send additions to the PC in the medical practice via Wi-Fi on the move or from home and my assistant can edit them. Another thing that I especially like about SpeechAir is its portability, as I can move freely around the practice. The SpeechAir's antimicrobial surface is another positive aspect for hygiene in my medical practice," says the doctor.

SpeechLive speech recognition – speak, send, receive the finished document

The Philips SpeechLive cloud dictation solution now includes speech recognition available in 21 languages. Spoken words are converted into a written text in next to no time. SpeechLive can be used at any time and is easily accessible via any web browser with no software installation required. "Our company is split between two different locations. Last week I was working in the office in Melbourne; this week I am outside of the city in Mount Waverley. It's great to be able to work from anywhere, without having to think about taking something with me. I can sign in from any computer," raves Nicole Honan, Office Manager at the law firm Hicks Oakley Chessell Williams in Australia.
