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

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

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