Philips’ speech solutions achieve highest Nuance “Dragon Score” ranking

Speech Processing Solutions GmbH has come out on top in Nuance Communications’ latest recording-accuracy test with its Philips dictation devices. With the release of the new version 12 of the “Dragon Naturally Speaking” speech recognition software, Nuance conducted hardware tests on products from Philips, Dictaphone, Olympus, InSync and Andrea Electronics and published these results recently on their website.

The entire range of Philips devices, from the Pocket Memo 9600 to the SpeechMike Premium and SpeechMike 3rd generation, were awarded the highest ratings in the Nuance survey in regard to microphone quality and clarity of recordings. For medical practitioners, lawyers and other professionals who work with speech recognition, the higher the recording quality, the better the speech recognition rating and the faster the document turnaround times.

Nuance test recognizes first-class microphones

“This result shows that we are the global leader in audio competence, and that our products live up to our promise and are number one in terms of speech recognition capabilities,” says Thomas Brauner, Managing Director, Speech Processing Solutions. “It underlines that our recording devices are state-of-the-art and feature first-class microphones.”

On the Accuracy Scale of the Dragon Score, the SpeechMike Premium LFH 3500/3600/3610 and SpeechMike 3rd generation Pro LFH3200/LFH3300 models achieved six out of six possible Dragons in the category “Handheld".

Highest ranking in “Recorders” category

Also, the Philips Pocket Memo dictation recorders, which are used by professionals such as lawyers and sales representatives, were rated best-in-class in the Nuance survey.

In the field of mobile devices, the whole Philips digital Voice Tracer Range from DVT1000 to DVT5000, as tested and reviewed in the category "Recorders", also achieved the maximum score with the three top positions in the category. Voice Tracers are handheld audio recorders optimized for users’ preferred recording activities such as meetings and distance recording.

The Philips Voice Tracers offer best-in-class audio quality in any situation.
