Speech Processing Solutions: Next-generation workflow solution with AI-powered speech recognition

Share

The new version of the Philips dictation workflow solution for enterprise businesses, SpeechExec Enterprise 7.0 (SEE 7.0), is now available in Europe and many international markets. The close collaboration between Nuance Communications and Speech Processing Solutions, the company behind Philips dictation solutions, SEE 7.0 now offers cloud-based Nuance Dragon speech recognition in addition to the workflow, allowing customers to edit or archive both audio and text files.

For speech recognition to meet the requirements of modern work environments and flexible processes in organizations, it must be combined with a workflow solution that tracks status updates and assigns priorities and tasks to dedicated personnel. "This is exactly why customers who use speech technology can benefit greatly from the close cooperation between SPS and Nuance," explains Dr. Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions. "As market leaders in our respective fields, we combined the best of both worlds for our customers: speech recognition and workflow solutions."

Ed McGuiggan, General Manager, Dragon Professional, Nuance Communications, adds: "We are pleased to expand our long-lasting partnership with SPS. With the integration of Nuance Dragon into Philips SpeechExec Enterprise 7.0, we created an easy to deploy product that fully meets the requirements of the modern workplace within large enterprise corporations. Together, we are accelerating the adoption and scalability of cloud-based speech recognition solutions to support collaborative work environments, regardless of where employees are located.”

SpeechExec Enterprise 7.0 integrates cloud-based speech recognition

The new version SEE 7.0 now supports state-of-the-art speech recognition technology by utilizing cloud-based Nuance Dragon speech recognition software. The product is available in English, German, French, Dutch, Swedish, and Spanish.

For front-end speech recognition, SpeechExec Enterprise connects to a dedicated Windows server – either on site or in the cloud. This allows authors to take advantage of Nuance's latest speech recognition engine with built-in deep learning technology for their digital dictation workflow. For the back-end speech recognition, files are sent from the Philips Voice Recorder App and mobile dictation devices (Philips SpeechAir, Philips PocketMemo) to a shared network folder. Philips Speech Recognition Server constantly monitors this folder, automatically retrieves new files, and converts them to text.

Companies can use the new solution for a variety of use cases: For e-mails, memos and other short copy, stand-alone speech recognition with Nuance Dragon Legal Anywhere or Nuance Dragon Professional Anywhere is sufficient. Longer copy and comprehensive briefs or contracts involving several people are handled by speech recognition in combination with a dictation workflow. From mobile dictation devices, all texts are processed through speech recognition and then finalized by in-house transcriptionists.

ABB: Q3 2020 Results23.10.2020 07:46:00 EESTPress release

“Third quarter revenues in all business areas were still dampened due to the impact of COVID-19, although a strong recovery in China and ongoing cost mitigation efforts supported a strong underlying performance. On the upside, the integration of GEIS and turnaround of Installation Products in Electrification is starting to bear fruit and Motion is performing robustly. Robotics and Industrial Automation, on the other hand, are taking more time to recover,” said Björn Rosengren, CEO of ABB. “We are pushing ahead with the decentralization of the group and the ongoing review of our portfolio, while carrying out our share buyback program as planned. We look forward to presenting further details on our strategic progress at our Capital Markets Day on November 19.” KEY FIGURES CHANGE CHANGE ($ millions, unless otherwise indicated) Q3 2020 Q3 2019 US$ Comparable 9M 2020 9M 2019 US$ Comparable Orders 6,109 6,688 -9% -8% 19,509 21,702 -10% -7% Revenues 6,582 6,892 -4% -4% 18,952 20,910 -9% -7% I
