With the launch of SpeechMike Premium, dictation has been taken to a new level. May it be the free-floating studio quality Precision Microphone, built-in noise-reduction pop filter, antimicrobial surface or the world’s first motion sensor in a digital desktop dictation device – the SpeechMike Premium sets the new benchmark.
Combining these features, it is no surprise that the SpeechMike Premium came out at the top, with six out of six possible dragons from Nuance.
Excellent media reviews
Michael Spehr of the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung describes the Philips SpeechMike Premium as a ‘convincing product’, and “the best dictation microphone for speech recognition currently on the market“. He specifically emphasizes the device’s high-quality recording capabilities, resulting in excellent acoustics and maximum reduction of distortion and background noise. Lunis Orcutt, CEO of KnowBrainer, a pioneer and a leader in speech recognition services, points out that with the significantly improved noise filtering, SpeechMike Premium “is the first handheld microphone that can effectively be used in a crowded emergency room”. The dictation experts at DictaTeam rated the SpeechMike Premium as highly efficient, and the technological leader, describing the device as Philip’s masterpiece. They stated that Philips may call itself the trendsetter in dictation.
