Olympus Launches RecMic II for Speech Recognition

Olympus has launched the RecMic II, an advanced microphone for speech recognition.

The new RecMic II Series is characterized by a dual-microphone system with flexible alignment and noise cancelling technology that can differentiate between voice and noise.

The combination of two omnidirectional microphones and the innovative noise cancelling technology revolutionizes speech recognition accuracy when dictating.

Several additional features round off the new capabilities of the RecMic II series. This includes the triple-layered pop-filter, which suppresses the noise caused by exhaling when talking into the microphones and the silent buttons that dampen noises when touching and operating the device, also improve the recording quality. An included microphone stand with automatic stand detection allows for hands-free dictation.

OLYMPUS RecMic II Series can be switched into four button modes. First, the Standard Olympus Mode allows controlling software with sophisticated button events like macros, keyboard shortcuts, text input, and commands for Nuance Communications' Dragon software, if the RCT (RecMic Configuration Tool) is running in the background. The other three button modes operate in a standard HID keyboard mode. Olympus provides a predefined button setting both for users of Dragon Speech Recognition (Dragon Mode) and Microsoft’s Windows Speech Recognition (Windows Mode). The Custom Mode allows assigning the buttons with individual shortcuts to control software via keyboard shortcuts.

Developers who want to fully integrate the RecMic II to have full control of both obvious and hidden features can use the software development kit (SDK), which allows them to integrate Olympus Dictation hardware.
