Seamless Speech Recognition with Philips SpeechLive on your Apple devices. Dictate, transcribe, and collaborate. Anywhere, anytime.

In an age of efficiency, remote working and competition, technologies such as dictation and speech recognition are becoming increasingly important. Philips SpeechLive offers an innovative solution to meet the demands of the modern workplace.

Speech recognition on your Apple device - why?

When it comes to the creation of documents, e-mails, correspondence, notes, lengthy legal proceedings or meeting minutes, using your own voice can save you a considerable amount of time. This is because we speak up to seven times faster than we type. Clients and partners will appreciate your quick, reliable answers.

Time is money, so any opportunity to simplify processes and facilitate collaboration is priceless. Philips SpeechLive is an innovative cloud solution that does exactly that, converting spoken words to text with ease, maximum flexibility and cross-platform compatibility.

How does SpeechLive work?

SpeechLive allows you to record content directly on your PC or Mac and through the smartphone app for Android or iOS. Furthermore, it works seamlessly with Apple devices like MacBook, iPhone and Apple Watch.

You, the "author", then decide whether to send the dictation to the transcriptionist as an audio file, for speech recognition or even to an external transcription service. Speech recognition can take place in real time, or the entire audio file can be sent to the speech recognition system in the background. You will get the transcribed text in a matter of seconds.

The result is a complete text document that can be archived in your digital file cabinet or sent out to your clients or customers.

Seamless Integration and Flexibility

SpeechLive provides multiple deployment options via web browser, desktop or mobile app. This flexibility allows you to customize the way you work and be productive from anywhere.

SpeechLive is a cloud-based dictation and transcription solution that gives you maximum flexibility. You simply log in via your browser, record a dictation and send it for speech recognition. Your transcriptionist can then immediately access the audio file and text file to finalize, correct and format the document.

New: Dictate your notes on your Apple Watch

From the web browser to the desktop app to the mobile app, the solution offers different components for different use cases. You can open SpeechLive in the web browser to record and manage dictations. The mobile app lets you record audio on the go and start speech recognition immediately. The desktop app allows you to dictate into any software or text box on your PC or Mac.

Speech recognition can either recognize your text in real time, so it appears as you speak, otherwise you have the option to send the entire audio file to background speech recognition and get the text back in seconds.

As many of us find ourselves stuck in traffic during our daily commute, the urge to tackle emails, jot down ideas, or kickstart new projects often strikes. Yet, the demands of driving prevent us from typing away. Luckily, technology comes to the rescue – now, you can safely accomplish all of this using just your voice. Whether you keep your phone at a safe distance or connect it to your car's entertainment system, dictation becomes a safe and efficient way to capture ideas on the fly.

And here's the kicker: the Philips SpeechLive mobile app is even available on your Apple Watch. It lets you effortlessly record and playback dictations right from your wrist. So, for SpeechLive subscribers, downloading the app on both your smartphone and Apple Watch means smoother document processing and quicker turnaround times.
