Digital dictation equipment
The use of speech recognition as an alternative method of inputting data to a computer is becoming more prevalent as speech recognition algorithms become ever more sophisticated and the processing capabilities of modern computers increases. Speech recognition is the process by which acoustic signals, received via a microphone, are recognized and converted into words by a computer. Speech dictation methods implemented through software typically search for matches to spoken words in a "general library" database associated with the software. Conventional dictation systems use magnetic tape to store analog audio information. Retrieval is through the control of playback of recorded analog information by using an analog record/playback device specifically designed to provide features required for ease of use. Digital dictation systems are normally in the form of specific dedicated hardware act/or software which act independently of computer systems related to document processing. These systems typically have eliminated the use of magnetic tape, and have provided users with centralized access to storage and retrieval of voice information. Central dictation systems are known wherein a number of dictation recorders are provided, each recorder being connectable to one or more dictate stations such that the users at such dictate stations can dictate messages onto the recorder. Central dictation systems evolved in response to two basic needs of users of dictation and transcription equipment. With central dictation systems, a user dictates data into an input station, whereby the voice message is transmitted to a central server, which assigns a job number and other identifying characteristics to the dictated information.
