Juhász Emöke law office employs eleven lawyers as well as one office assistant and is, among others, specialized in family law, tax law, company law and particularly civil proceedings. Composing submissions and formulating letters are daily tasks that need to be done in an efficient way.
For the major part of their thirty years in the legal business, the lawyers of Pivarnyikné dr. Juhász Emöke law office have been using dictation for their daily document creation tasks. But the way they made use of dictation changed massively over the years.
Transformation to mobile dictation
“More than twenty years ago we used to dictate with analog dictation microphones, but dealing with cassettes was neither convenient nor cost effective. We somehow felt restricted in our flexibility”, Dr. Emöke Juhász, head-lawyer of the law firm, describes. The process of creating text included secretaries who did the manual transcription of audio files – a time-consuming task.
With the help of Belux, the leading Hungarian speech recognition provider, the law firm succeeded in updating their document creation processes: “Belux consulted us really well. With their expertise and proper consultation we made the switch to digital dictation and speech recognition, which we have been using for twelve years now”, Dr. Emöke Juhász outlines. Now, five lawyers benefit from using the Hungarian speech recognition software ‘Globalspeech’ in combination with digital dictation devices by Philips. The Philips SpeechAir may look like a smartphone at first sight, but in fact it is a high-end voice recorder. It enables the lawyers of Pivarnyikné dr. Juhász Emöke law office to dictate also while they have consultations with clients. This raises their flexibility dramatically. The SpeechAir Voice Recorder makes it possible to access client data and audio files everywhere, at any time. Dictation files can easily be sent through Wi-Fi.
