Mark Robinson SC is a practising Senior Counsel based in Sydney focusing primarily on administrative and general law. He was a founding Judicial Member of the Administrative Decisions Tribunal of New South Wales in the General Division, hearing matters on privacy and freedom of information.

Robinson SC published six legal text books and services concerning administrative law, which he has taught at the University of Sydney. He is now housed at the renowned Maurice Byers Chambers in Sydney, where he provides legal advice and appears  in courts and tribunals  for  his clients on a wide range of matters including commercial, corporate and criminal law.

Speech recognition for saving time

Robinson SC has relied on using speech recognition to save him time and boost his efficiency since the beginning of his career in the early 1990s. About ten years ago he started using the Philips SpeechMike Dictation Microphone. “I use it to create court documents such as a summons and to draw legal advices, memorandums of advice for my instructing solicitors and for emails generally,” explains Robinson SC. Although he was impressed by the sound quality of the device, he missed having his hands free to navigate his mouse and perform other tasks during recording such as handling documents.

I’ve used speech recognition for over 25 years, and finally I achieved a 100% accuracy rate thanks to the Philips SpeechOne!

Robinson SC explains he would definitely recommend the Philips SpeechOne to his colleagues. “Although it is in the upper price range, but you get much higher speech recognition results in return which is definitely worth it as it saves you the hassle of having to correct unnecessary mistakes. Ultimately it saves you a lot of time,” says Robinson SC.

Mark Robinson SC is now looking forward to the launch of the new Philips AirBridge Wireless Adapter so he can use his dictation headset on the go as well. The USB dongle will give him the same lossless audio transmission benefits of the SpeechOne Docking Station, all packed into a compact device which looks like a small USB stick. With the AirBridge Wireless Adapter, legal professionals can be fully mobile and can benefit the excellent audio recordings with accurate speech recognition results anywhere, whether they are in the train or waiting at the airport.
