These recordings can then be listened to for transcription and the finished text file can be sent back to the author.

How it works:

01 Author dictates and sends recording to SpeechLive.
02 Assistant sees recording in the list and transcribes it using the in-browser player.
03 Once the assistant finishes the transcription, the text is sent directly back to the author.

Flexible working made easy

Philips SpeechLive lets you work from anywhere and anytime. If you cannot come into the office one day because your child is suddenly ill for example, you can still easily transcribe documents using your private computer from home. SpeechLive allows you to access the file list and playback the recordings in your browser, regardless of where you are.

Browser based transcription
with a foot control

Transcriptionists can work even quicker and more accurately using the brand new Philips foot control. The ergonomic foot control was developed by closely studying transcriptionists’ movements. Transcriptionists can stop and start playback with only a slight movement of the foot tip, and without lifting the foot unnecessarily, which both increases efficiency and makes it a lot more comfortable to work with.
