Speech Processing Solutions, a provider of dictation and voice solutions, has introduced its Philips Voice Tracer line of digital audio recorders, which will be available Feb. 1.

The consumer-focused Voice Tracer range features the following:

  • Increased storage space: Voice Tracers are equipped with 8 gigabytes of internal memory space dedicated to audio files, doubling the recording time of the line's previous models.
  • Speech recognition and cloud services: Some Voice Tracers come with the latest Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition software from Nuance Communications to convert audio files into written documents. Users can also use the Philips cloud-based subscription dictation management and transcription solution, SpeechLive, now available in more than 20 languages.
  • Sound quality improvements: The Voice Tracer includes two built-in stereo microphones to reduce background noise. It also features AutoAdjust+, which automatically adjusts sound parameters to ensure superior recording quality even in changing or loud environments, or with multiple speakers.
  • Specialized recording microphones: The Voice Tracer range employs specific technologies to adapt to various recording environments. The 3Mic AutoZoom+ suppresses surrounding noises and automatically zooms in on the speaker’s voice. The 360° meeting microphone captures all speakers from every angle and guarantees a crystal-clear sound – even for meetings with more than five participants.

"Major trends at [the Consumer Electronic Show] this year highlighted the growing consumer demand for high-quality, dedicated devices to make their lives easier and more connected," said Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions, in a statement. "The Voice Tracer digital audio recorder range builds on these key trends, providing high-quality, convenient solutions to consumers and professionals looking for a better way to record, store, and transcribe audio files. Now, North American consumers and professionals can have greater access to this superior technology to improve their dictation, recording, and transcription needs."
