Royal Philips Electronics has announced the release of an enhancement to the professional document creation platform SpeechMagic enabling for the first time adequate speech recognition in Citrix environments.

SpeechMagic supports 23 recognition languages and provides more than 150 recognition vocabularies for the medical, legal, governmental and financial sectors. These capabilities will now be accessible to more than 50 million Citrix users worldwide. 

The deployment of speech recognition and digital dictation applications from Citrix servers will be a key factor in more efficient documentation workflow. It also will enable the centralization of IT administration, and bring critical speech recognition features such as automatic learning and acoustic adaptation -- significantly reducing the strain on financial and human resources, the companies said.

The new component to the SpeechMagic platform is currently available.
