VIENNA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Speech Processing Solutions, the international leader in professional dictation, just launched a new dictation microphone. The improved SpeechMike Premium Touch comes with an innovative touch sensor for optimized and ergonomic navigation, including reduced thumb movement, and an enhanced barcode scanner for quick and easy file association. In addition to these user-friendly updates, the device can scan even more types of bar- and QR codes than its predecessor. The SpeechMike Premium Touch dictation microphone lets healthcare, legal and business professionals dictate their documents, saving them time and resources by allowing them to accomplish their core tasks – benefits that can be directly passed on to their clients.
Renowned for its superior microphone quality
The Philips SpeechMike Premium has long been known for its crystal-clear recording quality, and sets the standard for dictation devices worldwide. The free-floating microphone guarantees that almost no background, touch, click, air or structure-borne noise is recorded. “The SpeechMike Premium has established itself as THE benchmark for professional dictation microphones in the industry,” said Dr. Thomas Brauner, CEO of Speech Processing Solutions. “Unrivaled recording quality and noise canceling capabilities, as well as its perfect ergonomics and the antimicrobial surface make it a perfect tool for professional dictation users. These functions are especially helpful for attorneys and medical personnel.”
Focus on content
The new device is equipped with a durable touch sensor. Users can accurately control their mouse cursor using the new SpeechMike Premium Touch. This allows them to easily use and navigate within applications while recording, without having to switch between the mouse and microphone.
Less frequently used functions are placed above or below the sensor, and clearly delineated. Clearly marked distances and different shapes are perfect for operating the device without constantly looking down. Even the Premium Touch’s flip side is optimized for ergonomic and easy use: “Trigger” and “Command” buttons are placed just right to prevent unwanted activation. The key is to focus on content rather than complicated usage instructions. Configurable functions permit a personalized workflow, and an integrated movement sensor that mutes the microphone when not in use adds a finishing touch. “The new features guarantee smooth and convenient operation, even when recording over longer periods of time every day. The Premium Touch can also read more barcodes than its predecessor, allowing end users to quickly categorize and associate client and patient data. The results are enhanced security and potential cost savings,” said Brauner.
Speech to text made easy
Philips SpeechMike Premium Touch makes going from recording your voice to a written document a simple process. The dictation microphone is easy to integrate into users’ IT infrastructures, and works in harmony with existing software, both in large hospitals or small businesses. Thanks to the excellent recording quality, Philips SpeechMike Premium Touch is perfectly suited for transcription, whether by an assistant, speech recognition software, or Philips dictation workflow solutions such as SpeechLive and SpeechExec.

Philips workflow software creates a smooth and safe work cycle between authors and transcriptionists. “Philips SpeechLive is a perfect solution for people like myself, who are on the go a lot. It guarantees a reliable and safe transmission of dictations, regardless of what time it is” explained Dr. Peter Klein, partner at the international law firm PFKA, in Austria adding that: “The offered transcription service is another advantage, particularly in foreign languages such as French, as it virtually increases our office’s capacity.”
