SpeechExec Enterprise Transcribe

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 a user name. The user name identifies the user who last worked on the dictation file.

  • Set the destination folder on the PC for Pending dictations. Pending dictations will be listed in the To Do folder in the work list. The To Do folder organizes all your input folders into one simulated ‘overview’ folder.

  • Start another wizard to configure a Philips foot control. For more information, see Foot Control Configuration Wizard.

  • Configure settings for the ‘new dictation’ notification in your To Do folder.


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


If working in a network, select the folder on a mapped network drive where the author’s finished dictations are stored. These will be your pending dictations.
