How To Manage Specialties

Specialties can be used to classify the subject matter of a dictation

E.g. GP Practices may use different areas of medicine, Legal firms may use different areas of practised law.

Specialties can be customised to reflect your organisations processes within Lexacom Admin > Settings > Defaults > Specialties
