VIENNA, AUSTRIA and CINCINNATI, OH - Royal Philips Electronics (AEX: PHI, NYSE:PHG) and Dolbey has announced a partnership agreement regarding the integration of Philips' speech recognition technology SpeechMagic in Dolbey's Fusion Text. Fusion Text is Dolbey's most recent STAT Report transcription and document management solution for the medical market. With the integration of SpeechMagic, Dolbey signed on as a Philips Technology Partner. Already extensively tested on medical applications, Fusion Text is designed to integrate directly into an already developed transcription and dictation workflow so there is no need to re-train physicians. Based on the Philips SpeechMagic technology, the system will lead to an efficiency increase of up to 60 percent by saving time and cost in the creation process for medical documents. SpeechMagic automatically transforms spoken words into written text, thus freeing resources in the transcription department.
