The Initial Training Myth

The Initial Training Myth How many times have I heard physicians voice concern over the initial time required to “train” a speech recognition system in those words: “too long” and “not worth the effort”. Well, that might have been true 10 years ago. And that might still be true for consumer products, which are not tailored for a specific profile of users, like professional speech recognition is for healthcare. Sit back and relax, as here come the good news:

With professional speech recognition, the voice model training (initial training) typically takes two minutes and is often not necessary for native speakers. For non-native speakers or speakers with a strong accent up to ten minutes of initial training are recommended. Typically, voice model training is carried out using a wizard requiring the physician to read out a given text according to which the voice model is adjusted.
