Philips SpeechLive in Virtual Environments with the Device Connector Software

Philips SpeechLive in Virtual Environments with the Device Connector Software

Philips SpeechLive is the ideal tool for both remote and office working; allowing users to securely send files via cloud-based servers to be transcribed online using a transcription foot control. No software required - just a web-based login. 

Now, users can even utilise the SpeechLive dictation system from within a virtual/remote desktop environment with the new release of the Philips Device Connector Software. This software enables Philips hardware such as a Philips SpeechMike or Philips ACC2000 Series Foot Control to be used with SpeechLive when being accessed across a remote desktop. 

How does it work?

Simply put, your Philips dictation device sends events (e.g. when you push a button or use the slide switch) to the Philips Device Connector Software, which communicates with a Google Chrome extension also called Philips Device Connector in the Extension shop. The Chrome extension is a plugin for the Chrome browser that acts as the communication channel to SpeechLive.

Philips Device Connector Software

Using the Philips Device Connector solves several issues that you might have encountered while using Philips devices in SpeechLive before:

  • You can use Philips dictation and transcription devices in virtual environments such as Citrix or Windows Terminal Server.

  • The Philips devices work plug and play without switching them to "browser mode“.

  • The SpeechLive browser tab does not have to be in focus (visible) while using Philips dictation and transcription devices.

  • The LEDs on the Philips devices work perfectly showing you the exact status of your recording.
