ScanSoft Inc. will integrate its Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK (software developer's toolkit) with Voicebrook's VoiceOver enterprise medical transcription system, the companies said this week.
   
The integration adds speech recognition capabilities to VoiceOver Enterprise, which provides transcription processing capabilities for a wide variety of electronic medical record (EMR) systems. Dragon NaturallySpeaking Medical 8 enables the real-time conversion of speech into text, allowing documents and forms to be completed by voice. 
   
Medical professionals in specialties such as radiology, pathology, surgery and oncology, among others, use VoiceOver Enterprise to create medical documentation within an existing hospital information system by voice. The technology is built on Windows programming convention and is compatible with nearly all EMR, CPR, and RIS systems in use at healthcare providers today.
   
The ScanSoft Dragon NaturallySpeaking SDK is used by developers and integrators to add both front-end and back-end speech recognition capabilities, including speech-to-text and voice command capabilities directly into in-house and commercial applications.
