Are you interested in or already using speech recognition?

Do you work in an office environment where authors and assistants work together? There is only one solution that
can do it all: The Philips SpeechExec Speech Recognition Workflow Extension.
SR works well, but it is nothing without workflow integration

Today’s speech recognition software may offer up to 99% recognition rate, but without automation of the
document flow between authors and assistants, all the benefits just vaporize. Just importing your dictations
into speech recognition software often takes more than 10 clicks and more importantly, a lot of your valuable
time. With SpeechExec, all you have to do is dock your dictation recorder and the dictations are automatically
downloaded and transcribed by speech recognition software.
Only Philips, as the no. 1 in professional dictation, can offer a completely future-proof solution – from businesses
that plan to use speech recognition over mixed environments using speech recognition at some workplaces to
speech recognition-only environments.
Outstanding benefits that ultimately make you simply work smarter

With the SpeechExec speech recognition workflow extension, speech recognition software can be fully integrated
in an office workflow and support critically required features such as automatic queuing of dictations from several
authors to predefined assistants, support of speech recognition in forms and templates, selective routing of dictation
files to speech recognition software or assistants and many more.

Selective auto-routing from Digital Pocket Memo

to speech recognition
Use case:

• The author wants to be able to define on the Pocket Memo
which dictation should be sent to speech recognition and
which should be typed by their assistant. (e.g. the author
dictates in noisy environments where SR software would not
transcribe properly).
Solution:
With SpeechExec it is now possible to directly select
on your Pocket Memo which dictation should be sent to speech
recognition and which should be sent straight to the typist.
Enhanced profile adaptation when using Dragon

Roaming Profiles
Use case:

• The author wants to be able to run the resource intensive
profile adaptation for Dragon Naturally Speaking roaming
profiles on the assistant’s PC and thereby constantly improve
the profile after correction.
• The profile adaption is very resource intensive, completely
blocking the author’s PC for longer periods.
Solution:
SpeechExec supports adaptation of multiple Dragon
roaming profiles on a “non-author” PC. In combination with
the “scheduled adaptation” function, this feature provides a
huge benefit for speech recognition users as it allows the
exact timing of the adaptation process.
Automatic upload of dictations to speech recognition
Use case:

• The author has sent a digital dictation over the network.
The typist has to feed the file to speech recognition manually
one by one.
• There is a plan to use a dedicated PC to run off-line speech
recognition and adaptation to save resources on author’s and
typist’s PCs and speed up the flow of documents.
Solution:
SpeechExec Pro Transcribe now provides the ability
to automatically feed dictations to the speech recognition queue,
even over the network and from different PCs.

THE MAIN BENEFITS OF SPEECHEXEC WITH SPEECH RECOGNITION

Ability to schedule profile adaptation
Use case:

• After correction, the author or transcriptionist wants to
update the speech recognition profile via profile adaptation.
• Profile adaptation is very important to improve speech
recognition accuracy – but usually takes up a lot of valuable

time and computer resources.
Solution:
SpeechExec allows starting the profile adaptation
process at specific times and dates. This option highly
increases productivity by pushing the resource intensive
adaptation process to off-peak office hours.
Further improved Dragon control outside SpeechExec

Use case:

• The user wants to make use of speech recognition in other
text editors like Microsoft Word or Microsoft Outlook with
SpeechExec running in the background (to e.g., to quickly
create an email between dictations; make final modifications
to a Microsoft Word document).
Solution:
With the newest version of SpeechExec, the support
for controlling Dragon speech recognition with a SpeechMike
outside of SpeechExec has been improved even further.

It allows you to work the same way as if you would directly
within SpeechExec (e.g. now, the record function can be
switched between push-to-dictate and record toggle mode).
Dictating with SpeechExec and Dragon while still being able to
use other software highly increases productivity and supports
the daily workflow.
