Smart Voice Recorder

Smart recording on the go

with Wi-Fi and three professional microphones

The SpeechAir Smart Voice Recorder saves you time and resources by allowing you to work more flexibly than ever before. Integrated Wi-Fi functionality facilitates quick file download from any network. Recordings are encrypted in real time for maximum data security. The device also features three microphones dedicated to outstanding voice recording quality.

Dragon dictation accuracy certification Philips SpeechLive certified Philips green product Digital Speech Standard SDHC
Three dedicated microphones for optimized voice recording

Three professional microphones deliver ultimate sound quality in any recording situation. The 360° microphone is ideal for recording dictations and meetings. The direction microphone is best suited for noisy environments. For VoIP telephony the SpeechAir uses a dedicated microphone.

Large speaker for crystal clear audio playback

The large speaker allows you to playback your recordings in crystal-clear audio quality.

Gorilla glass touch screen and shockproof, hygienic housing for durability

Gorilla glass makes the device scratch and shock resistant. The device is shockproof according to US military standard 516.6. The hygienic surface of the housing physically hinders the colonization of germs and thus improves the efficiency of the usual measures for disinfecting the device.

Wear-free slide switch and function key for ultimate usability

The ergonomic and wear-free slide switch is designed for efficient single-handed operation without having to look down at the device. It allows for quick and easy dictation handling (play, pause, stop, fast forward, fast rewind). A customizable function key above the slider gives quick access to the dictation app.

Wi-Fi, LAN, Bluetooth, USB and VoIP to stay connected anywhere you go

Save time by transferring your finished recordings wirelessly to your transcription staff and directly access patient or client data. Use Wi-Fi for VoIP calls and access your emails and calendar. Use Bluetooth to send and receive data or to connect external speakers.

Barcode scanner and camera for quick file association

The camera allows you to conveniently attach photos supporting your dictations. It can also be used as an integrated barcode scanner linking patient and client data to a recording.

Docking station for fast battery charging

The docking station with an anti-theft system (Kensington lock) automatically transfers all your recordings to your computer and quickly re-charges your device. The LAN connection allows you to transfer your files directly from the docking station without a computer.

Philips dictation recorder app with professional dictation features

The integrated recorder app comes with professional dictation features such as editing modes, priority, EOL flag, enhanced data and dictation list as well as sending options (to network folder, Philips SpeechLive services or email recipients).

Optional remote administration for hassle-free central administration

Optional remote administration using Philips Remote Device Management software allows IT administrators to manage, configure and update dictation hardware centrally, saving valuable time and resources

File encryption for maximum data security

Recordings are encrypted in real time using the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) 256bit, which has been approved in the USA for the most highly classified government information. A PIN code protects the device against unauthorized use. Settings can be locked, for instance connection to Wi-Fi networks can be restricted.

Dictation software for an efficient workflow

SpeechAir also comes with Philips SpeechExec Pro Dictate software for an efficient and streamlined offline office workflow (PSP1200). The Philips SpeechLive service transfers your dictation workflow to the cloud and features online speech recognition and a transcription service. (

Software development kit (SDK) for SpeechAir customized app creation

The software development kit (SDK) allows you to customize your existing app to use the different microphones, speakers, slide switch, function key, microphone sensitivity and LED.

Hardware SDK for seamless integration into your own workflow solution

The Hardware SDK allows the integration of SpeechAir into other workflow solutions, such as hospital information systems (HIS) or law practice management software. This allows for example access to patient and client data directly on your SpeechAir to achieve a smother workflow.

Android OS for intuitive use and app installation

Android is a secure and intuitive operating system which allows you to install apps on your SpeechAir and have all important applications on one single device.
