Nuance enhances Dragon voice recognition

Nuance Communications has announced customisation and productivity enhancements for Dragon Professional Group and Dragon Legal Australian.  Both solutions provide powerful, enterprise-ready capabilities to easily deploy speech recognition across multiple users to improve documentation productivity within enterprises and law firms of any size.

Dragon Professional Group and Dragon Legal Australian have been updated to include a next-generation speech engine leveraging Nuance’s Deep Learning technology to deliver high-recognition accuracy with the ability to learn and adapt to a variety of accents and environments, making both solutions ideal for large workgroups and a variety of settings.

With advanced speech recognition and robust voice command capabilities, professionals can create detailed and accurate documentation – all in real-time by voice. And with optimisation for popular Microsoft Windows touchscreen PCs, mobile professionals and field workers can complete detailed documentation or reports, or fill out form-based templates, such as client intake forms, almost anywhere work takes them.

Suitable for enterprises across a wide range of industries including social and financial services, Dragon Professional Group, version 15 enables employees to create high-quality documents, spreadsheets, and presentations or fill form-based reports – which often include drop-down menus and the need to point and click – faster and more accurately, all by voice. With its powerful voice command and transcription capabilities, Dragon Professional Group makes it easy to automate repetitive tasks and manual processes, improving turnaround times while eliminating the need for costly third-party transcription services.

Dragon Legal Group Australian, version 15 is designed specifically for the Australian legal industry with a specialised legal vocabulary developed using a corpus of Australian legal documents. Dragon Legal Group Australian enables the quick creation and formatting of case files, contracts, or briefs, and empowers solicitors and other legal professionals to streamline legal documentation turnaround times and reduce transcription costs, while freeing up support staff to concentrate on high-value, billable tasks.

Scalable for any size of organisation, Dragon Professional Group and Dragon Legal Group Australian can be easily deployed and centrally managed by an organisation’s IT group or other department using the Nuance Management Center.

In addition to enhancing Dragon Legal Group Australian, Nuance is releasing a Dragon Legal Individual Australian solution. “Dragon Legal Individual Australian will allow sole practitioners and smaller firms that don’t need the enterprise features of Dragon Legal Group Australian to realise the productivity boost from the local legal vocabulary,” said Derek Austin, Nuance’s Dragon Business Manager, Asia Pacific.
