Speech-Driven Reporting delivers 7x Faster!

Updated: Mar 29



It’s easier to speak to produce words with your voice as opposed to tapping away on your keyboard. The whole process is significantly faster and studies validate this fact.


Independent research confirms that dictating your documentation can be up to seven times faster than typing. Researchers based their findings on experiments with professional typists. How many of us can type as quickly as a professional typist?


Great Lakes Informatics offers the value of relying on our skilled transcriptionists or our industrial strength speech recognition applications. Both options save time and money.


Time is priceless, we can’t buy it back!


Based on the seven-times-faster research results, here are a few numbers that will shock you:


One page of text takes about 2 minutes to speak, but 14 minutes to type. Speech-to-text software can result in an 86-percent time savings. That translates to a massive cost savings for firms that charge an hourly rate.

  • An attorney or physician that bills at $250.00 per hour would lose about $215.00 typing their own document, as opposed to using a professional transcriptionist for about $3.50 per page. Or, they could use speech recognition software for even a lower cost. Time saved could then be leveraged to finish other projects or generate new clients, all of which result in additional revenue!


Law Firms


Thanks to major advances in speech recognition technology, legal professionals can experience these time and cost savings from anywhere. Using a smart phone, digital recorder or speech microphone, you will be able to create dictations and have a document processed quickly by speech recognition. Speech-to-text software is a popular and effective way to speed up your legal documentation workflow.


Administrative professionals anywhere can access the new version of Philips SpeechExec Pro along with Dragon Professional Individual in only one step. Attorneys who wish to expand support for legal vocabularies can use Philips SpeechExec Pro with Dragon Legal speech recognition. The two solutions together provide advanced functionalities for increased flexibility.
