SpeechExec Enterprise Dictate

Get started

Start SpeechExec dictation software

If the option to start SpeechExec automatically was selected in Settings > General settings > Worklist > Startup, the program opens as soon as your system starts.

To manually start the program, open the Windows start menu in Windows and select Philips SpeechExec Enterprise.

Create a SpeechExec user profile

When using SpeechExec for the first time, a wizard guides you through the step-by-step configuration process to create a new user profile and configure your initial key settings.

Follow the on-screen instructions to:

  • Specify an author name that will be used to identify your dictations

  • Define the name and the (network) path where your finished dictations will be stored

  • Set the default Work type (Note, Letter, Report, Protocol, or Abstract) assigned to new dictations

  • Start another wizard to configure a PocketMemo or a SpeechAir.

Restart the user wizard

If you want to reuse the user wizard, you can restart it anytime.

  1. Go to Settings > General settings > Worklist > Startup.

  2. Activate the checkbox next to Start New User Wizard.

  3. Click Apply and then click OK.

    X The next time you start SpeechExec, the user wizard will automatically be opened.

Note

  • If you wish to use the speech recognition features of SpeechExec and have already created a user profile in Dragon NaturallySpeaking, use the same name for your SpeechExec author name. For more information, see Speech recognition functions.

  • It is possible to change the settings later using the Settings menu. For more information, see Settings menu.

Tip

If working in a network, select a folder on a mapped network drive to store finished dictations. Transcriptionists will then be able to access the folder and map their pending folders to your Finished dictations folder

  2. To add a user profile, click Add..., and set your desired settings. To change an existing user profile, click a profile from the list and then click Modify....
