Philips SpeechLive Cloud Dictation - What's Coming Up in 2024

Philips SpeechLive continues to lead the way in cloud-based dictation; with a forward-thinking team of talented developers, and a new and existing customer base with evolving requirements, SpeechLive has plenty of updates planned throughout 2024 to bring even better functionality to the #1 solution for cloud dictation.

New and upcoming improvements

Philips Device Connector (PDC) installation wizard
Previously, connecting hardware to SpeechLive required manual steps. With the new Philips Device Connector (PDC) installation wizard, users no longer need to perform these manual actions. The wizard guides users through the necessary steps to install PDC, enhancing the overall hardware integration experience with SpeechLive.

Available now

Immediate archiving
A new option, "Archive immediately," has been added to user personal settings. When enabled, dictations marked as finished are automatically archived. Account administrators can also configure this setting for all workflow users, streamlining the archiving process across the organization.

This setting can also be configured for all workflow users by the account administrator, making it more convenient for administrators to quickly set the archive settings for all their workflow users.

Available now

Dictation list filters are saved
Filters set up by the user in the dictation list are now saved even when the user signs out and in again. This saves a lot of time on the daily work, enabling users to customize their dictation list and have it immediately ready as needed.

Filters are also saved based on the view, so if the user sets different filters for the archive than those are saved independently, the same is true for office managers when using the all dictations view.

Available now

Improved tooltips
Philips has improved the tooltips for the quick filter, helping users to quickly get an overview which dictations are filtered by the respective option.

Available now

Additional file types for attachments
Users will be able to attach additional file types to their dictations. They can currently already attach various picture and video formats, this will be extended by other file types like PDFs, PowerPoint presentations or Excel sheets.

Note: this functionality will depend on the subscription plan.

ETA: Q3 2024

Mobile app design refresh
Philips is improving the look and feel of the Mobile App. This includes not only design improvements, but also adjustments to the current user experience. This will bring the Mobile App up to par with the new Web App, giving users a more consistent experience across devices and platforms.

ETA: Q3 2024

We will add notification functions to the new Web app, so users always know when a dictation is processed or a new dictation is ready to be transcribed.

ETA: Q3 2024
