What is Speak Recognition Software?

Speech Recognition Software enable users to turn spoken words into text or commands on their computers. It helps make everyday tasks easier and faster and is used in a wide variety of personal and professional environments.

Speech recognition has many uses from making and receiving calls, conducting web searches, rapid transcribing and more. Speech recognition headsets are especially popular with working professionals that spend extended periods of time using a mouse and keyboard, as well as less abled individuals who can benefit from hands free features.

5 Benefits of Using Speech Recognition Software with Headsets

Fast and Accurate

Speech recognition software can be up to 3x faster than typing, with some versions having an accuracy rate of over 99% when turning the spoken word into editable text. You can even set up spoken shortcuts to complete complex actions such as opening, creating and sending emails.

Ease of Access

Headsets with speech recognition software are excellent for users with physical disabilities that prevent the use of a keyboard and mouse. Being able to issue voice commands and dictate the text of a document without having to rely on manually typing can be a huge benefit.


Speech recognition offers huge amounts of flexibility for users. With the correct equipment you can seamlessly transition between devices, going from tablet to desktop to mobile at the click of a button. This is a particularly useful feature for people who are often on the move at work, such as healthcare workers, legal and sales professionals.

Access on the move

Speech recognition software can also be used remotely when out of the office. Cloud based software and storage enables you to save text for later use, or access and complete documents that were started earlier on.

Enhancing Workplace Health

An often-overlooked benefit of speech recognition is how it can impact your health.

Using voice recognition technology instead of a mouse and keyboard can help to reduce the likelihood of suffering office-based health issues. In business environments people often spend as much as 8 hours a day seated, with limited activity and extended periods of time using a mouse and keyboard.

Headsets grant the freedom to stand up and move around whilst still working efficiently, they reduce the likelihood of suffering from repetitive strain injuries as well as helping prevent poor posture. Headsets with voice recognition software can even be used to dictate text without looking directly at the screen, providing your eyes with a much-needed break.

Get the Right Equipment

Speech recognition software is already a popular choice in a number of industries and as technology continues to advance it will go from strength to strength. Researchers are creating more and more intelligent systems that can make our everyday lives easier and the sky really is the limit.

As speech recognition technology improves so will our day-to-day usage, so it’s important to be prepared with the right equipment. A cheap, uncomfortable and inefficient headset just won’t cut it for most users, so try to aim for a good quality option that offers the range, features and functionality necessary for your daily use.
