How To Save Time With Speech Recognition Software

Humans have long wanted to speak to machines – or at least make them talk to us. As technology progressed, this dream became a reality in the form of speech recognition.

Speech recognition software provides a convenient user interface for professionals based on the simple interaction between the user’s voice and technology.

So, what is speech recognition?

Speech recognition is a technology system that enables the recognition of spoken language into text by computers.

This technology is a crucial element of streamlining admin processes across key industries, such as healthcare, legal, accountancy, and other professional sectors. 

The main advantage of using speech recognition is that it saves you time. Speech recognition software can capture speech in real-time much faster than you can type. 

Ultimately, this results in increased productivity for both the user and your organisation as a whole.

The exact amount of time you can save with speech recognition software will depend on how much you type and how fast you do it.

The table below shows how much time you can save with speech recognition software based on how much time you spend typing.

Time Spent Typing Time Saved with a Speech Recognition Software
1 Hour 20 minutes
3 Hours 1 hour
5 Hours 1 hour and 40 minutes

These results show that you can save 20 minutes per every hour you would normally spend typing. If you spend an average of 3 hours typing each day, then you’ll save one hour every day with speech recognition software.

Saving one hour each day translates into hundreds of hours at the end of the year. The hundreds of hours saved with speech recognition software can be used on more demanding tasks.

Additionally, speech recognition saves you money, which can be reinvested in staff training, quality assurance, and other key business areas of your organisation.
