Integrate Philips dictation hardware into your application easily. The Philips software development kit (SDK) acts as an interface to Philips dictation hardware for quick and reliable integration.

Roll out current and future dictation hardware from Philips, such as SpeechMike dictation microphones, Pocket Memo dictation recorders and foot pedals without changes to your software. Simply copy the hardware drivers to the client computer. Administrator privileges or changes to the Windows registry are not necessary, thus ensuring a fast and easy rollout of dictation hardware.

Support for Citrix and Windows Terminal Server. Philips Speech Drivers allow the usage of Philips hardware along with virtualized third-party applications.

C# examples with both source code and compiled executables for easy start of integration.

With native support for 64-bit operating systems, SpeechExec SDK allows the development of native 64-bit applications.

To minimize the effort of integration, Philips software development kit for dictation hardware is implemented as COM control, allowing programming language independent software development.
