Philips Launches New SpeechMike Air
Royal Philips Electronics today announced the launch of SpeechMike Air, a wireless version of its SpeechMike audio recording device. With the addition of SpeechMike Air, Philips further expands its line of modern, digital speech processing solutions.
SpeechMike Air features include wireless functionality, a dictation microphone, playback speaker, dictation control, and PC navigation. In addition, software included with the device is compatible with Nuance Communications’ Dragon NaturallySpeaking, enabling users to customize SpeechMike Air by controlling key functions of the speech recognition software.
Product design is based on a streamlined shape and enlarged function buttons that keep movement to an absolute minimum. The "push-to-dictate" function simplifies the dictation process and makes it more intuitive, enabling the start and stop functions to be controlled with a single button.
"We believe the SpeechMike Air sets the global standard in terms of innovation, ergonomics, and user-friendliness. The system clearly highlights our position as the world's leading one-stop shop for modern, digital speech processing solutions—now also boasting a wireless solution for the office, medical practice, or law firm," said Thomas Brauner, chief executive officer and category leader at Philips Speech Processing. "With innovative technology and sophisticated solutions that work, we are shaping the workflows of our customers even more productively."
