Speech Recognition

Dragon Speech Recognition

Turn Talk into Type

With over 18 years experience working with speech recognition software, AbleTech can implement and customize a speech solution tailored to your needs.

Most people speak over 120 words per minute but type less than 40 words per minute. What if you could create email, documents and spreadsheets simply by speaking? What if you could control your PC just by talking to it? This includes launching applications, opening files, managing e-mail and working on the Web — all by voice.

With speech recognition software from Nuance Communications, you can turn your voice into text three times faster than most people type. Just start talking, and the software will recognize your voice instantly, delivering up to 99% accuracy as soon as you get started. Accuracy will continually improve the more you use the software.
