SpeechOne

Get started

Caution

Before you connect your SpeechOne, first read the safety instructions (see Safety instructions).

Charging the battery

  • Charge the built-in battery before you use the device for the first time or if you haven’t used it for an extended time period.

  • If the battery is completely discharged and your device turns off, allow the battery to charge for a while before you turn on the device.

  • A complete recharge cycle takes about two hours.

  • The device should be charged every 6 months even when not used, to prevent the battery from completely draining (deep discharge).

Charge via docking station

Note

If you charge your device via docking station, make sure that the micro USB connector is connected to the USB port for charging marked with 5V DC.

X During charging, the battery LEDs on the docking station subsequently light up in a loop until the headset is either removed or fully charged.

X When charging is complete, all three battery LEDs on the docking station glow white.

Caution

Make sure that there are no metallic parts on the docking station, otherwise the charging process is not possible.

Charge via computer

Before you charge the battery via computer, make sure that your computer is turned on.

Note

Recording is not possible if only your SpeechOne is connected to the computer. To make a recording, you also need to connect the docking station to the computer.

X During charging, the status LED on the headset is flashing.

X When charging is complete, the status LED on the headset stops flashing and starts glowing constantly.

Charge via USB power supply unit ( optional)

Note

  • For fast charging, you need a USB power supply unit with at least one ampere. The power supply unit is not included and needs to be purchased separately.

  • A complete fast recharge cycle takes about one hour.

X When charging is complete, all three battery LEDs on the docking station glow white.

Learn about the battery status

When the SpeechOne is removed from the docking station, the battery LEDs on the docking station indicate the battery status.

Pairing

Once you have connected your SpeechOne to a docking station, you can dictate wirelessly and use the dictation headset on different workstations without any further pairing effort.

Note

  • If you use several docking stations, make sure to keep a minimum distance of 50 cm (18 inches) between each docking station. If the distance is less than 50 cm (18 inches), there might be interferences between the docking stations.

  • Make sure that the distance between the SpeechOne and the docking station is not more than 5 meters (16 feet). For more information, see Learn about wireless technology.

Pair the SpeechOne and the docking station

Put the SpeechOne onto the docking station for about 4 seconds.

X The pairing process starts.

X When pairing is finished, the battery LEDs on the docking station light up for one second and display the battery status afterwards.

Change paired devices

If your desired docking station is already connected to a different SpeechOne, the battery LEDs on this docking station display the battery status of the connected headset.

To disconnect this existing connection and pair your own SpeechOne with the desired docking station, proceed as described in Pair the SpeechOne and the docking station.

Note

Please differentiate between the following two situations:

  • If the wireless connection between the SpeechOne and the docking station is lost, all three button LEDs on the docking station glow orange and the status LED on the headset glows red.

  • If there is a problem with the USB connection of the docking station (e.g. the USB cable is connected to the wrong USB port on the docking station), all three button LEDs on the docking station glow orange and the status LED on the headset glows orange.

Learn about wireless technology

The SpeechOne uses wireless technology to establish a connection between the dictation headset and the docking station.

A wireless connection doesn't require that the SpeechOne and the docking station be in line of sight. However, the maximum distance between the SpeechOne and the docking station should not be more than 5 meters (16 feet). The closer the devices are to each other, the better is the performance. The connection is subject to interference from distance and obstructions or other electronic devices.

Note

Make sure to keep a minimum distance of 50 cm (18 inches) between the docking station and other wireless devices, such as smartphones or laptops. If the distance is less than 50 cm (18 inches), there might be interferences between the docking station and other wireless devices.

Going out of range

When the wireless connection is lost, a voice prompt will notify you about this. If you have a SpeechExec application running on your computer, the software will be stopped.

In this case, move closer to the docking station to reenter the reception area.

X The connection is reestablished.

X A voice prompt will notify you that the connection is established again.

Idle mode and Power down mode

Idle mode

After 4 minutes of inactivity, the SpeechOne automatically enters Idle mode.

X The status LED on the headset starts flashing green quickly.

To reactivate the device:

Simply lift the headset up until the status LED on the headset glows green.

Power down mode

If the SpeechOne is not used for more than 6 hours, it automatically turns off to save battery life. The battery LEDs on the docking station are turned off then.

To turn the device on again:

Place the device onto the docking station for about 4 seconds.

X If the connection with the docking station succeeds, the battery LEDs on the docking station light up for one second and display the battery status afterwards.

or

Press the Headset button until the status LED on the headset glows green.

Resetting the wireless connection

If you should encounter problems with your device, for example, the SpeechOne doesn't respond or doesn't connect to the docking station, you can reset the wireless connection.

  1. Press the Headset button on the headset until the status LED on the headset turns off.

  2. Release the Headset button on the headset and wait until the status LED on the headset turns on again.

  3. Disconnect the docking station from your computer (and optionally from the power outlet).

  4. Connect the docking station to your computer (or optionally to the power outlet) via the supplied USB cable. Make sure you use the USB port for PC connection marked with usb-connection-icon.png on the docking station.

  5. Place the SpeechOne on the docking station and wait for about 4 seconds.

    X The SpeechOne should be detected and be automatically paired with the docking station.
