Three Questions to Ask When Selecting a Pathology Dictation Microphone

Selecting the right microphone for your Pathology speech recognition environment can be an intimidating process, but it doesn’t need to be.   Not all microphones that work for other applications or environments can be counted upon to work well for speech recognition applications.   Our team has tested a wide variety of microphone hardware directly with our application, so it takes the guesswork out.  We have also integrated many microphone controls directly into our VoiceOver application.  Only the best options become our recommendations.  There are a few basic questions you need to ask yourself before choosing the right microphone for your environment.
