Speech Recognition on Citrix

Speech Recognition on Citrix The benefits of deploying a document creation and management platform through a thin-client infrastructure is probably no news to you: no more cost-intensive, powerful workstations, substantial cost savings, increased data security, on-the-move data access for users, just to name a few.

With a growing demand from large healthcare providers for thin-client infrastructures, Citrix is forming new, strategic relationships with key players in the field of the EMR and medical records management technologies. The company has therefore launched the Citrix Ready initiative to help its customers identify recommended third party solutions that are trusted to sensibly enhance the Citrix application delivery infrastructure. The Citrix Ready status was recently awarded to the Philips speech recognition technology, SpeechMagic, after successfully completing verification testing that proved joint system compatibility.

Robert Thornton, commercial director for Philips Speech Recognition Systems, said: “The adoption of SpeechMagic in the healthcare sector has reached a new dimension, with break-through implementations on a city- and region-wide scale’. Many of these projects require the deployment of industrial grade speech recognition within a Citrix based IT infrastructure. Philips is the first to advance its speech recognition technology to fully support Citrix infrastructure as part of the Citrix Ready initiative, thus enabling our integration partners to quickly deliver on changing market needs.”

David Jones, corporate vice president, business development, for Citrix commented: “Philips has invested significant resources in adapting SpeechMagic to Citrix requirements and we are looking forward to furthering the penetration of speech recognition, digital dictation and transcription with the Citrix community.”

The Citrix Ready initiative currently supports Citrix Presentation ServerT 4 (32 and 64-bit versions), Citrix Password ManagerT 4.5 and Citrix NetScaler. Support for additional Citrix products will be added throughout 2007, says the company.
