Will voice recognition software help me?

I’ve just seen a very interesting article which may help you to decide the answer to the question, “will voice recognition software help me?” You may have tried it in the past and found that it wasn’t very good, but I am so confident that this is no longer the case, that I will guarantee it at no cost to you if you don’t think it will help, following a short training session! I have quoted from the article here and included the link to the full text at the bottom of the page.

I’ve just helped a lawyer who charges £250 an hour and using voice recognition software he is saving at least one hour a day of his time. Let’s say that he works 45 weeks a year – this means a saving of  over £56,000! Time he can use for work that he is able to charge for directly!

Most people are now used to voice recognition on their phones, and now more are using it for work related tasks by speaking emails, court orders, reports, proposals, business letters, etc., capturing their thoughts, findings, and analyses either directly or on a digital recorder so that speech recognition software transcribes it later.

Paperwork is important. Police officers need to accurately document their incident and arrest reports, lawyers need to take detailed notes and prepare documents for court as part of defending their clients. Social service workers need to keep track of the details of their cases – sometimes it can make a significant difference in the life of a child or a family in need.

Despite it mattering so much, paperwork can be incredibly time-consuming and tedious, ultimately limiting our efforts in other vital areas of our jobs. Consider this recent American study, which revealed that administrative tasks like paperwork account for 35 percent of social service workers’ work weeks. I think it’s safe to say that these workers would like to have more than two-thirds of their time to dedicate to more meaningful case work, like interacting with actual people.

There are many benefits to simplifying and improving documentation processes: Saving time and money, better serving clients and customers, mitigating risks associated with industry compliance requirements, and generating new business, just to name a few. Voice recognition is now a genuine solution!

Not coincidentally, there are many benefits to using voice recognition for documentation: It’s faster and more accurate (speaking is up to three times faster than typing); it improves the overall quality of reporting; it allows you to capture thoughts and ideas while they are fresh in your mind; it increases productivity in the office and in the field; and it alleviates the pain and discomfort associated with using a mouse and keyboard for long hours – something that shouldn’t be underestimated, considering the annual collective cost of repetitive stress injury.

Speech as an enterprise solution is already being proven. The 2014 International Legal Technology Association (ILTA) revealed that 52 percent of law firms surveyed are now using voice recognition

I hope that this has helped to answer the question, “will voice recognition software help me?”. Please do get in touch to arrange a demonstration or if you have further questions. One last thing, I provide a free copy of the software with my training!
