Posted by at 2:53 pm on October 21, 2008

MacSpeech today released MacSpeech Dictate v1.2, the first major update to their speech recognition solution for the Macintosh. Now for the first time, MacSpeech Dictate customers can dictate any specific word, no matter how obscure, by spelling it letter-by-letter with the new Spelling mode.

“MacSpeech Dictate 1.2 makes amazing accuracy get even better as you use it,” explained Andrew Taylor, founder and CEO of MacSpeech, Inc. “We’re thrilled with the huge leap forward this update provides our customers, who can now dictate precise spellings, move their cursor using their voice and improve their recognition accuracy toward the holy grail of 99%.”

The new Spelling mode in version 1.2 makes it possible to spell-out acronyms, names and unusual words. The new Move command, introduced in version 1.2, was created to allow people to use their voice to relocate the cursor within a document for easier vocal editing.

Version 1.2 also includes new Phrase Training, what speech recognition applications on other platforms refer to as “Correction,” to improve speech recognition accuracy over time. The new Phrase Training capabilities enable people to act immediately when they notice text has been recognized differently than intended, and promptly train the application to recognize the word or phrase. The applicable profile stores the Phrase Training data for future reference.   MacSpeech Dictate is designed to continually increase accuracy over time from what was established during the initial voice training, or from specific execution of vocabulary training.

MacSpeech Dictate requires Intel-based Macintosh hardware and requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or Mac OS X 10.5.2 and higher. MacSpeech Dictate is currently available in English at http://www.macspeech.com  in the U.S., athttp://www.macspeech.co.uk in the U.K., and in other English-speaking countries through International resellers and distributors listed at http://www.macspeech.com/resellers/.
