When Your Speech Recognition Solution Won't Recognize A Certain Word

Speech recognition seems to be everywhere these days. Just say, "Hey Siri" or "Ok Google," and dictate a command without even picking up your smart phone. While this technology continues to improve, it's not perfect. Think about how many times you have to correct a word Siri or Google doesn't recognize. Thankfully, speech recognition for medicine is miles ahead of your smart phone. For Pathologists, it gets even better. VoiceOver is the ONLY speech recognition solution specifically tailored to Pathology. Still, there may be a word that just won't be recognized properly. This is a short blog about one such case.

Word Correction Saves Time and Improves Recognition Accuracy

Dragon Medical 360 software is the most accurate speech recognition software for medical professionals and is the engine that drives our VoiceOver Pathology platform.  The software is capable of 99% recognition accuracy, but in most cases users have to do their part to help the software reach this level.

Occasionally, we hear from users that ‘VoiceOver or Dragon are not learning when I correct words’. While the user perception is technically true because he/she found a mistake in the report and went back and fixed the text, their correction technique is often not (for lack of a better term) correct.  If their goal was to improve accuracy and save time in the future, then the user needs to employ a different technique in order to achieve this.
