Philips, Nuance integrate voice recognition into SpeechExec
Philips Speech Processing’s SpeechExec digital dictation system now fully supports Nuance’s Dragon Medical voice recognition.

Prior to the integration, the two companies had cooperated on optimizing the use of Philips dictation hardware, such as the Philips SpeechMike, with Nuance’s voice recognition software for healthcare.

Among the features of the integrated system is a correction editor which highlights text on screen in sync with audio playback. Dragon Medical is based on a medical recognition vocabulary; new words can be added and the system learns from each reviewed dictation document, according to Burlington, Mass.-based Nuance.
