SpeechMike Air

Wireless dictation microphone

Boost your productivity

with a professional dictation solution

The Philips SpeechMike Air is specifically designed to meet the tough challenges of document-intensive professions. It represents the perfection of desktop dictation, no longer restraining it by a cord. The pure, timeless design, its outstanding ergonomics, and the sophisticated functionality in conjunction with superb recording quality make it a milestone in professional dictation.

Dragon dictation accuracy certification Philips SpeechLive certified Philips green product
Noise-canceling microphone for accurate speech recognition results

The superior microphone reduces background noise and is optimized for speech recognition. The built-in headset socket allows you to attach the noise-canceling headset for hands-free recording and even more accuracy in a noisy environment.

Wireless dictation microphone for unparalleled cordless user-experience

On top of the unparalleled wireless user experience, the SpeechMike Air features high connection reliability, low power consumption, and an expedient data transfer rate. The AirBridge and AirPort form the interface between SpeechMike Air and the PC. The AirPort docking station provides convenient charging of the dictation microphone, while the AirBridge serves as the PC connection. Voice data is encrypted and securely transferred from up to 33 feet away. While traveling or at home, simply attach the AirBridge to your laptop and continue working.

Comfortable ergonomic design for one-thumb operation

Designed with three ergonomic zones, it has been tested and proven by users to have the most comfortable fit in the human hand. The dictation zone is optimized to keep thumb movement to a minimum and allows for blind operation. The buttons needed for the actual dictation functions take up the greatest amount of space in the central area of the device. Less frequently needed function buttons are clearly arranged above and below. The trackball uses a laser sensor that allows precise cursor movements. It contains an integrated confirmation button for simple control of PC functions and can also be used to control playback volume.

Integrated trackball for navigation through documents

The Philips SpeechMike Air offers an integrated trackball that allows the user to easily navigate through documents and files without using a mouse.

Integrated sound card and speaker ensuring crystal clear playback

The advanced built-in front speaker and the integrated sound card guarantee crystal clear playback of your dictation files.

Geared for Dragon NaturallySpeaking speech recognition software

The SpeechMike Air features preconfigured buttons for direct control of Dragon NaturallySpeaking, the voice recognition solution from Nuance.

Can be fully integrated into existing workflow systems

Philips provides a software development kit (SDK) for speech, office, and business application developers that allows for convenient programming of interfaces when integrating the SpeechMike into professional information and dictation solutions.
