Document management
the advantages of speech recognition remain unappreciated

Companies of all sizes need to create and manage text documents. Speech recognition could make many procedures easier and faster.

Many companies nevertheless continue to use time-consuming and outdated methods. SMEs in particular could significantly increase their productivity by using powerful speech recognition in document creation, according to study conducted by Nuance Communications. So far, only a few companies in Germany (14%), the UK (4%) and France (6%) leverage such resources. The paradoxical reason for this: by their own account, 41% of companies surveyed do not have time to deal with increasing their efficiency. A third indicates that in their company the software is checked only once a year, or every year and a half, or even less often. (Source: Nuance Communications/bs)
