T-Pro Speech Direct allows clinicians of any medical specialty to dictate directly into text fields within any clinical or non-clinical 3rd party application, using front-end speech recognition.

Using a small, non-intrusive window, clinicians can access their single, unified voice profile anytime across a wide variety of devices and use their voice to, for example:

  • Update patient records, dictate notes, and fill out reports in any clinical system (e.g. PAS or EPR).

  • Produce documentation in Windows-based applications (e.g. MS Word), create emails (e.g. MS Outlook) etc.

In addition, they can execute voice-based navigation commands, insert standardised boiler-plate text and (if needs be) correct the speech recognised text - all by voice.

Best practices for best performance

Dictation

  • Before dictating, make sure the cursor is placed and blinking where you want to place text.

  • Think about what you want to say before you start to speak.

  • After you turn on the microphone, pause slightly before beginning dictation.

  • T-Pro speech recognition is designed to recognise conversational speech. Speak at your natural volume and pace and use natural phrases.

  • Turn off your microphone when you finish dictating.

Commands

  • Pause briefly before and after saying a command.

  • Do not pause in the middle of saying a command.

Using Speech Direct

When the microphone icon is red, the microphone is on. When the microphone icon is grey, the microphone is off.
