5.5.2 PRO Setting up speech recognition
SpeechExec Pro installs only the necessary files
and components to access the recognition application functionalities. The Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition application must be
purchased and installed separately. For information on the installation, configuration, training,
and adaptation of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, see
the Dragon NaturallySpeaking user manual.
To use Dragon NaturallySpeaking for speech
recognition, a Dragon user profile with a valid
user name and and dictation source is required.
User profiles can be installed on the local hard
drive (C:), or can live on a server and can be
accessed through a network connection (roaming profiles). When using a Philips SpeechMike
microphone, use the USB microphone setting in
Dragon NaturallySpeaking. It is recommended
to perform training when creating a Dragon
user profile to enhance your initial recognition
accuracy.
Before using the speech recognition feature, the
following settings must be made:
• Enable the speech recognition functions in
the SpeechExec seetings menu under Settings
> General settings > Speech recognition >
User manual
The following settings are optional:
• Enable the use of roaming user profiles
under Settings > General settings > Speech
recognition > Speech recognition settings.
• Enable the use of templates under Settings
> General settings > Speech recognition >
Templates if you want the text to be inserted
into a predefined text document.
• Enable the automatic start of the recognition
queue under Settings > General settings
> Speech recognition > Recognition &
adaptation to process dictation files newly
added to the recognition queue automatically.
• Enable the automatic collection of corrected
dictation files for adaptation under Settings
> General settings > Speech recognition >
Recognition & adaptation to make adaptations
on Dragon user profiles based on the
corrected speech-recognized documents.
• Activate the option Send files for speech
recognition after DPM download under Settings
> General Settings > DPM/DT Configuration
> Speech recognition to have dictation
files automatically processed with speech
recognition when they are downloaded from
the Pocket Memo recorder.
D Note
If this option is activated, the conversion,
encryption and delivery after download
options are disabled.
5.5.3 PRO Using speech recognition
SpeechExec supports two types of speech
recognition. Your words are transcribed onto
your screen as you dictate (online speech
recognition) or files that where previously
recorded (e.g. on a handheld recorder) are
transcribed when they are downloaded to your
computer (offline speech recognition).

window opens.
2 Start recording. See 4.2 PRO Create a recording
on page 12 for more information about
recording.
As you talk, your words are transcribed onto
your screen. Corrections to the transcribed text
can be made during recording or when recording
is complete.

Frequently asked questions
The operating system stops responding
after restart
Using the Philips SpeechMike together
with certain USB hubs may cause the
operating system to stop responding
when the computer is started.
Unplug the SpeechMike before starting the PC
and reconnect it afterwards. We recommend
replacing the USB hub or connecting your
SpeechMike directly to the USB port of the
computer.
The SpeechMike is completely without
function
Some computer providers limit the
output power of USB ports to 100mA.
These ports may not provide enough
power for the SpeechMike to function
properly.
Use the AC charger.
Connect the SpeechMike via the self-powered
hub.

Drive letter conflict with the Digital
Pocket Memo
When installing the Digital Pocket Memo
on a PC with Windows, the operating
system automatically assigns a drive
for the Digital Pocket Memo. This
drive appears as a “removable disk” in
Windows Explorer. Sometimes the drive
letter assignment for the Digital Pocket
Memo conflicts with an existing drive
letter mapping; this is why the Digital
Pocket Memo cannot be seen in Windows
Explorer and SpeechExec displays the
status as “DPM (disconnected).”
Map all network drives starting with drive
letters Z, Y, X (in reverse alphabetical order).
The SpeechMike is connected to the
computer but sound will play on the
computer’s speaker only
Windows XP can support only one
playback device at a time and may require
setting the playback device back to
“SpeechMike” if another playback device
was enabled after the SpeechMike was
installed.
• Set via Start > Control Panel > Sound and
Audio Devices > Audio (tab)
• Or, right-click the speaker icon if it’s in the
toolbar and select Adjust Audio Properties
Windows Vista can support more than
one playback device at a time, but if you
disable the device for playback it is also
disabled for recording. You may need
to right-click and select “Show disabled
devices” to change the setting.
