Philips Launches Dictation and Transcription Software for Mac OS X

Philips Speech Processing today announced the launch of its professional dictation and transcription solution for Mac operating systems.

In combination with the DPMConnect4 Mac software, SpeechExec4Mac allows users of the Philips Digital Pocket Memo to download dictations to their company network and play them back on their Mac systems, providing a complete workflow from dictation to transcription.

SpeechExec4Mac is the only professional dictation application that supports the DSS Pro file format from all IVA (International Voice Association) vendors in a Mac environment. Automatic file locking and file routing post-transcription helps users avoid transcribing dictations twice inadvertently.

"Many companies today follow a Bring Your Own Device policy, where end users decide for themselves which device they use for their daily work," said Thomas Brauner, managing director, Philips Speech Processing, in a statement. "In many cases this will be a MacBook. SpeechExec4Mac will enable Mac users to benefit from professional dictation and transcription; to work quickly and efficiently; and to explore the full potential of modern, digital working tools."

SpeechExec4Mac is an open system, allowing users to choose their individual work flow settings. SpeechExec4Mac shares the licenses with its Windows-based equivalent so that it seamlessly integrates into mixed environments and with other Windows-based SpeechExec applications. SpeechExec4Mac has been successfully tested with the Mac operating systems Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. For all other listed operating systems, it is recommended that the latest update available is applied before installing SpeechExec4Mac.

The application will be available on all SpeechExec DVDs that ship with Digital Pocket Memo packages with SpeechExec software. Customers who already have a valid SpeechExec 7.x license key can download SpeechExec4Mac from the Philips Speech Processing Web site. SpeechExec4Mac is currently only available in English.
