Speech recognition added to Linux desktops

IGEL Technology : 10 June, 2008  (New Product)
Improved productivity for IGEL workstation users with dictation and voice recognition capabilities
IGEL Technology has announced the addition of advanced digital dictation and speech recognition solutions as standard to its Universal Desktops based on IGEL Linux. These features are made available through the latest IGEL Linux firmware upgrade and will be available to all new IGEL customers and those existing customers using compatible IGEL hardware. This solution, the first of its kind on a Linux-based thin client, will offer substantial advantages to the healthcare and legal sectors because it allows digitally captured recordings and text to be attached directly to patient and client files, where additional information can be added and stored.

IGEL's latest Linux firmware upgrade includes dictation support for Kuhlmann MBS-easy with Phillips SpeechMike and Grundig DigtaSoft Pro with Grundig Dictation Mics. Both solutions can be used in combination with applications being delivered to the desktop using the Citrix ICA protocol.

'IGEL customers can now combine the benefits of Virtual PCs with industrial grade dictation and speech recognition technology," said Stephen Yeo, IGEL worldwide strategic marketing director. "This will enable doctors, for example, to dictate their reports as audio files and record them on the server via an IGEL thin client which reduces the time spent on administrative activities, leaving the doctors more time to focus on patient care. Immediately after their rounds, doctors can record their findings via the IGEL Universal Desktop and assign them to the appropriate patient files."

Industry experts estimate that digital dictation and speech recognition systems are capable of achieving time savings in medical reporting of up to 50 percent, particularly in large hospitals. The faster availability of medical information can improve treatment results and help reduce medical errors, as it provides better decision support to healthcare professionals.
