FBI chooses speech recognition software from Nuance

Nuance Communications : 13 November, 2007  (Application Story)
Speech recognition technology to be used for assisting FBI personnel in data capture and improved field report creation
Nuance Communications has announced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has selected Dragon NaturallySpeaking through Nuance's Site License Program (SLP) in order to offer speech recognition capabilities throughout the FBI. In an effort to boost efficiency and keep pace with an ever-increasing workload, the FBI will make Dragon NaturallySpeaking Legal available to agents and professional support staff across the entire organization, enabling them to quickly and accurately create comprehensive reports, interviews and other documents by voice, increasing productivity by three times over manual typing.

In recent years, the FBI has been tasked with a growing number of cases and has endeavored to find an affordable solution that could not only help to more efficiently manage workloads, but one that could also improve the process by which documents are created and edited. Nuance provided the FBI with a solution to both problems with Dragon NaturallySpeaking Legal, delivering an application that has the features and accuracy to achieve measurable levels of productivity gains, and a licensing program that enables affordable enterprise deployments.

Dragon NaturallySpeaking can deliver productivity increases of up to 300 percent for the FBI by automating the manual document creation and editing process that has traditionally bound the organization. With Dragon NaturallySpeaking, FBI agents and professional support staff can dictate and edit interview notes, reports, emails and other documents all by voice, at up to 160 WPM - more than three times faster than typing - and at accuracy levels up to 99 percent. In addition, users can create voice shortcuts to insert blocks of texts or bitmaps - such as name, title, and signature—with a single voice command, or macros to streamline repetitive workflows, saving even more time and increasing productivity. Using Dragon NaturallySpeaking will allow FBI agents and professional support staff to quickly create more detailed, comprehensive notes by voice instead of slowly typing abbreviated entries in an effort to save time.

The FBI joins other leading government organizations such as the US Attorneys Office and the US Social Security Administration who have also benefited from Nuance's products and volume license programs.

"The selection of Dragon NaturallySpeaking by the FBI for their entire organization is proof positive that speech recognition is an invaluable productivity tool for anyone creating documents and email," said Steve Chambers, president, Mobile and Consumer Services Division of Nuance. "It also demonstrates the benefits of the Nuance Site Licensing Program, which greatly simplifies the purchasing process and removes the headaches associated with compliance and monitoring."
