Customize Your Speech Recognition Vocabulary to Ensure Success

One of my roles as a Project Manager with Voicebrook is to communicate the important elements of a successful Pathology vocabulary and to gather information from each site to maximize initial accuracy.

Speech recognition software, especially those tailored to medicine, include a comprehensive vocabulary right out of the box. VoiceOver is built on the Dragon Medical 360 Platform, which includes a pathology-specific vocabulary designed for the creation of pathology reports. Still, staff names, facilities, special stains, etc. may be misunderstood during dictation if you don't plan properly before implementation. If you have already implemented a speech recognition solution or are in the process, you may have been asked about custom vocabulary items that are specific to your lab. The aim of this customization is to save time and hassle during dictation by removing the need for multiple corrections down the road.

Dictating Old Cases in the New Year

The holidays are over, and everyone is back to the grind.   It's time to start diagnosing casework and you issue your first command to begin dictating a new accession number.  You say, "Surgical, one zero,"and accession number S-16-00010 opens up and it's business as usual.  But wait, you think.  How did VoiceOver know to open up a case from this year without specifying the year in the command nomenclature, and what do I say if I want to dictate a case from 2015?

This brief blog explains how these commands work and what you need to say in order to open up the correct accession number for the correct year.
