Lexacom 3 – Version Updates

Our Development Team are always working to keep Lexacom up-to-date. If a version update contains any information you need to be aware of it will be included in the notes below.

Your system will normally be updated automatically when new updates are made available, visit our guide How To Check The Latest Lexacom Version for further information.


SystmOne New API

SystmOne have released a new API which needs to be updated in your Lexacom system to continue integration. To enable integration, it is important to follow the steps in this short guide but contact the Lexacom Helpdesk if you encounter any technical problems.

Brand new Echo functionality

Our all new Echo speech recognition platform can now function seamlessly with Lexacom, to generate referrals with additional notes or fully transcribed dictations, using your voice rather than typing.

TLS 1.2 update

TLS has been updated in line with NHS Digital requirements.


.NET Framework Upgrade

To securely support updated TLS versions Lexacom 3 has been upgraded to use .NET Framework v4.7. Workstations running an up-to-date version of Windows 10 should include .NET 4.7. but where this is not present, PCs must be updated to support 3.14 usage.

Use Lexacom For Longer!

Lexacom now supports even longer audio recordings. If you use Lexacom to make lengthy dictations and want to optimise the length of your recordings contact the Lexacom Helpdesk to enhance your audio engine.


Working in partnership with Olympus Technical Support we have updated hardware drivers to v1.3.4 to ensure continued microphone and footpedal stability in Remote Desktop Service environments

Minor bug fixes have been included in this update – thanks for your feedback! If there’s anything else you would like to see in future versions of Lexacom email wishlist@lexacom.co.uk


Enhancements have been made to our audio engines to support the millions of dictations you are making in Lexacom and Lexacom Echo!

If you’re undergoing a Windows 10 update it’s now more secure than ever to configure PCs to the Cloud using Lexacom Connect. Contact Helpdesk@Lexacom.co.uk if your IT Team require any support with the Lexacom configuration on your site PCs.

Communications with the Lexacom Cloud and our app have been improved to optimise Lexacom Mobile operational speeds.
