Philips Digital Dictation Solutions are built around the Philips SpeechExec Software suite. The solution allows an author to dictate anywhere using a Philips Voice Recorder, and then either download or email recordings to a typist for transcription. Alternatively, the author can dictate recordings in the office using a handheld Philips SpeechMike. The SpeechExec software manages the flow of dictation between the author and typist, automatically notifying the typist when jobs arrive, with the ability to add comments and set job priorities. The typist then transcribes the recording using foot controls to control playback.

New in v7.5 is full integration with Dragon NaturallySpeaking, offering both front-end and back-end speech recognition. This means an author can either correct their own speech recognition errors, or pass the transcribed document through to a typist for correction.

Suitable for small to medium sized dictation environments who don’t need to advanced workflow management that Winscribe provides.
