Infor*Med Integrates the Acoustic Magic Voice Tracker
LOS ANGELES, CA - Infor*Med Medical Information Systems, the makers of the Praxis EMR, announced that it has entered a partnership agreement with Acoustic Magic to sell the Voice Tracker array microphone with its Praxis Medical Records Software. The Voice Tracker has been certified by both ScanSoft for use with Dragon NaturallySpeaking and IBM for use with ViaVoice. The Voice Tracker forms a listening beam (like a searchlight), which locates and electronically steers toward the talker. This spatial filtering reduces background noise, creating a high signal-to-noise ratio, which results in low recognition errors, long range and fast response. According to Richard Low, M.D., Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Infor*Med, "it is critically important for a physician to work 'hands-free' in his environment, so that his main concern is only his patient. Voice Tracker enables medical practitioners to use voice recognition software, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, to enter information into Praxis. Voice Tracker is the first array microphone I have used that works effectively in a physician's office."
