Highlights of SpeechExec
Enterprise 4.1

software solution, features improved administration tools, an enhanced statistics module
and advanced workflow features that help professionals get their ideas onto paper faster,
more conveniently, and inexpensively.

SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 is a modern, flexible solution for a fast-moving world – and is
crucial to ensuring that digital speech processing remains a cornerstone of your company’s
strategy for greater efficiency.
Putting IT administrators at the helm
“SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 brings a wealth of
benefits to IT administrators and was developed
in close collaboration with IT specialists from
large legal and medical entities. It reduces the
strain on human resources when implementing
and managing enterprise-wide, high-volume
dictation workflows,” says Thomas Brauner,
category leader of Philips Speech Processing.
Fast, convenient and inexpensive
Profitability-conscious businesses use digital
dictation to create documents. It is fast,
convenient and inexpensive. Today, large groups
of doctors and lawyers work with SpeechExec
Enterprise in their hospitals or at their law firms.
They are even able to connect from home or
on the road via iPhone or Blackberry to their
SpeechExec Enterprise digital dictation solution.
Facilitated user management
SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 facilitates
user management with Active Directory
synchronization. Administrators can set up and
maintain groups or manage user rights at the
click of a button. They can also allocate group
management rights to heads of department,
making it easier to distribute workloads more
equally and flexibly.
Better statistics
The enhanced statistics module in SpeechExec
Enterprise 4.1 generates data on the dictation
and transcription workflow, including work item
throughput, turnaround times and used workflow
types. This supports decision making and allows
for the continual optimization of workflows
despite changing user patterns or preferences.
More flexibility
SpeechExec Enterprise also possesses
heightened flexibility, including system settings
tailor-made to meet customer requirements
– providing both options for full installation,
Terminal Server and Citrix environments, and
scheduled workflow options.
Seamless speech recognition integration
SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 is aligned with Philips’
philosophy of giving users the freedom of choice
regarding their working preferences: dictation
authors can decide whether to have their
dictations transcribed by a secretary or a speech
recognition system; selective automatic routing
even allows them to make that choice directly
on their Pocket Memo portable voice recorder.
At the other end of the chain, transcriptionists
have the option to highlight every word of text
drafts generated via speech recognition while
playing back the original recording. This makes it
easier to find and correct errors.
Philips recently announced an expansion of
its partnership with Nuance Communications
in order to better integrate speech
recognition with SpeechExec. SpeechExec
Enterprise connects seamlessly with Dragon
NaturallySpeaking Professional, Legal and
Medical to control the entire document creation
workflow within one single application.

Basic modules and optional
companion modules
SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1
foundation
Enterprise Dictate for authors
This powerful dictation module processes
voice files from digital portables (Digital
Pocket Memo) as well as from desktop

Advancements
in version 4.1
With SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 Philips has pulled out all the stops in terms of IT
administration: developed in close collaboration with IT specialists from large legal firms
and medical organizations, Version 4.1 reduces the strain on human resources when
implementing and managing enterprise-wide, high-volume dictation workflows. An
enhanced statistics module together with advanced workflow features add to the unique
experience in enterprise-wide digital dictation.
16
17
User-driven;
administration-friendly
SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 enables more people to use digital dictation more often. Easier
and more convenient administration is at the heart of the enhancements found in the new
version. Improvements are firmly geared towards the daily workflows and requirements
of administrators and build on previous advancements such speech recognition capabilities
or support for Citrix networks; which all makes for a much improved digital dictation
experience.
Advanced Active Directory support
Synchronize organizational changes to the Active
Directory with the user and group management
functions in SpeechExec Enterprise. Use the
lead system to add, move and remove users and
groups; managing two different systems is a thing
of the past.
Enhanced management of groups and users
Create and manage groups or users in Enterprise
Manager more easily: copy users or groups from
templates or lock group-wide settings with a single
click.
Concurrent and multi-tier administration
Define individual access rights for administrators
and department supervisors so they can manage
specific groups – even simultaneously from different PCs. Distribute the workload more evenly
and flexibly.
Relationship Manager
The relationship between authors and transcriptionists is defined with a single mouse click; relationship set-ups can be exported to a CSV file for
future reference.
18
Statistics module
Design your reports based on your individual
information needs. Simply load your own
template and run the query. Time values​​, such
as dictation length, dictation and transcription
are displayed in a well-structured, easy-to-read
format; now including the download date and
time of dictations from a digital Pocket Memo.
License server
To make sure you always have sufficient active
licenses and avoid interrupting the work of your
end-users, e-mail notification can be set up:
should the number of active licenses falls below a
predefined limit, an automatic notification is sent
to the administrator.
Workflow Manager
In the Workflow Manager a number of small
improvements have been implemented. When
defining tasks, multiple query criteria can now
be linked with both the AND and the OR
parameter. In the task overview view, multiple
tasks can be enabled or disabled simultaneously.
Improved cache management adds to the speed
of the entire application.
19
Seamless communication
SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 works seamlessly with third-party applications, allowing for
outstanding performance even in inhomogenous IT infrastructures and with legacy
systems. The integration of speech recognition has been optimized even further.
The interface of SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1
exchanges the meta data of a dictation and the
dictation status with relevant applications in the
network. The interface is now also available for
the transcription component, thus delivering a
closed-loop dictation workflow.
This key advancement makes the entire reporting
process smoother and ensures that critical
information is available more quickly; completed
dictation jobs and documents can be transferred
straight to the parent system, such as a hospital
information system.
The power of speech
SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 is compatible with
Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11.5.
It allows for advanced speech recognition features,
including automatic offline speech recognition or
scheduled adaptation. Users can route dictations
on their mobile recorder to speech recognition
either manually or automatically.
In the correction window an option for
asynchronous audio playback has been added. By
default, every word of is highlighted while playing
back the original recording. This makes it easier
to find and correct errors. However, this has the
disadvantage that no corrections can be made
while the recording is played back. With the new
option for asynchronous playback, transcriptionists
can edit the text during playback and accelerate
the correction process.

From small improvements
do mighty results grow
The developers of SpeechExec Enterprise 4.1 have focused on multiple improvements
which all add up to help users work more efficiently and improve the overall digital
dictation experience.
Enhancements for mobile recorders
User of a mobile recorders of the Philips
Pocket Memo series can now configure their
device even easier. Keywords can be copied via
the Windows clipboard into the configuration
window or imported from text files, resulting in
the easier configuration, harmonized workflow
and fewer errors.
Users can also select the target folder for each
dictation at download time and can opt to
route a dictation to speech recognition.
New document templates for digital dictation
Automatically attach templates to digital dictations
– including Microsoft Word, Excel and Power
Point templates. If such documents are attached to
encrypted dictations, they will also be encrypted
in the corresponding folder as long as they remain
within the SpeechExec environment.
Improved dictation file handling
A new start-up method combined with improved
cache management speeds up application start-up
for high-volume work lists and ensures speedy
refreshment of the work list view. It also
requires less storage capacity on the
user’s PC.
Better support for third-party devices
Subfolder structures from third-party
devices can be downloaded and “Priority”
DSS files are displayed in the SpeechExec
Enterprise work list with the appropriate
color. SpeechExec Enterprise can be used
in mixed environments with third-party
applications without XML file conflicts.
Thin client support: Citrix Ready
Like previous versions, SpeechExec
Enterprise 4.1 is certified “Citrix Ready”.
Because Philips is a Citrix partner, you
can rest assured that your SpeechExec
solution is a match for the evolving
terminal server environment, now and in
future.

23
IT requirements
SpeechExec Enterprise follows a simple philosophy. It supports every dictation scenario.
This concept is the key to letting you work the way you want. It provides individual
solutions for diverse requirements that are typical in an enterprise-wide workflow.
Centrally installed, deployed, and managed, the result is simple and efficient administration.

possible. In case customers need to run SpeechExec
Enterprise with speech recognition support in Citrix
environments, we recommend to contact the local Philips
Speech Processing support who will provide a technical
analysis and project-based rollout support (in case of a
positive technical evaluation) as we cannot guarantee the
functionality. Provide load balancing for Citrix servers
Due to server capacity limitations, Nuance suggests that
only four to six users should simultaneously run speech
recognition on one physical Citrix server. This number may
even have to be reduced to two to four, if several users are
running adaptation programs at the same time.
Dragon licenses required
A Dragon license is required for every author. Nuance
strictly states that one license may not be used by several
users.
Use Citrix extensions from Philips for SpeechExec
Enterprise only
Using Dragon speech recognition within the SpeecExec
Enterprise workflow requires the installment of Citrix
extensions from Philips. To use speech recognition with
other programs, other Dragon Citrix extensions need to be
installed.
