The recent switch to home working due to lockdown has made legal firms turn to remote and cloud technology to carry on providing important services to their clients. Key to maintaining the efficiency of those services is making sure document creation is fast and accurate, so client cases move down the line towards resolution with high levels of customer service.

To help legal firms with productivity and better staff collaboration during lockdown, Philips is offering SpeechLive free of charge for 30 days. SpeechLive is a dictation and transcription web-application that allows solicitors and secretaries to create and share any client correspondence or internal memoranda from anywhere, ideal when working from home.

How does it work?

If you do the dictations:

  • Use the Philips voice recorder app, or a digital voice recorder, or a desktop microphone to do your dictations and send the files to the SpeechLive web-portal for typing
  • Optional use of Speech Recognition – your dictation file is transcribed almost instantly by a speech recognition engine
  • External Transcription Service is available on-demand and particular useful to cover staff absence, holiday or illness

If you do the typing:

  • Easy access to all dictation and transcription files in the SpeechLive portal
  • Email notification of new dictations that have been sent to you, including their priority
  • Playback the dictations using the SpeechLive user interface or connect a foot pedal and headset to you PC to do the transcriptions
