SpeechWare has been hard working on its innovative award-winning VoiceMatic Version 10 audio chipset for its speech recognition microphones since 10 years now.
Human voice significantly deteriorates with distance and ambient noise. Noise reduction is therefore of paramount importance for dictation. This is why all speech recognition software works best with a good headset or handheld microphone. For instance, the expensive Philips Speechmike or Nuance Powermic or some headsets.
However, permanently wearing or holding a device at close-range distance while dictating; not having both hands free and frequently recharging wireless microphones is a rather uncomfortable proposition for many professionals. There must be another way to do it!
What about if you pick-up, process and extract human speech out of any sound signal with a proprietary audio chipset providing powerful Digital Sound Processing (DSP), Automatic Gain Control (AGC) and Speech Equalization (EQ) for maximum noise cancellation, high and low noise filtering?
You will get exceptional voice or speech clarity. Minimal dictation distance and background noise will not be the most limiting factors for good speech recognition anymore. Fast processing, no latency, cristal clear audio and maximum accuracy in all environments is now possible!
Moreover, the magic combination of DSP, EQ & AGC also provides SpeechWare USB microphones and USB audio adapters for any analog headset, with self adjusting input, whatever the dictation distance. It delivers instant, no latency transcription, perfect recognition accuracy from 10 cm to 50 cm (4″ to 20″) or more. Comparable to that of the best close-range headsets or handheld devices available in the market.
The proprietary VoiceMatic chipset also support the standard Dragon Naturally Speaking hotkeys for microphone control, like it is the case with the new Push to Lock (PTL) and Push to Talk (PTT) buttons of the new SpeechWare USB TableMikes.
In conclusion, thanks to the built-in VoiceMatic chipset of SpeechWare USB microphones and USB adapters, it is possible to dictate nearby the Niagara Falls with crystal-clear voice quality --while keeping both hands free, not having to recharge or even wear anything.
What an amazing change for crisp no-latency speech recognition whatever the circunstances!
