New dictation app ships

MacSpeech has launched MacSpeech Dictate Medical, providing speech recognition and dictation software for medical professionals on the Mac platform. The software is designed specifically for medical and dental professionals and support staff, allowing dictation of text directly into applications and practice management systems. The software can issue numerous commands by voice, on the Macintosh, using an included, digitally enhanced USB headset/microphone. MacSpeech Dictate understands and supports vocabularies for more than 54 medical and dental disciplines and specialties, including general medicine, cardiology, dentistry, OB/GYN, pediatrics and others.

MacSpeech is quoting a 99-percent accuracy rating even when using highly complex medial terminology. They are also claiming low speech training times for the software, in the neighborhood of five minutes. MacSpeech Dictate Medical will be demonstrated Friday, June 19, 2009, in the MacPractice Booth (#303), at the Florida National Dental Convention (FNDC) at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center, in Orlando, Florida.

The software requires Mac OS X 10.5.6 or higher and an Intel-based machine. It retails for $600.
