Speech Recognition Trends due to COVID-19 pandemic

Now in the middle of a very different 2020, our socially-distant lives here at Think-a-Move are keenly and centrally focused on the application of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) in applications where hands-free non-touch command and control are critical.

Yet, these advances are lacking one feature/function that will make them truly become ubiquitous and standard. That is the addition of hands-free Automatic Speech Recognition software embedded directly into the Telehealth tools. Voice recognition with respect to Electronic Medical Records has multiple uses. These uses may range from medical history data aggregation to aid in clinical research or to diagnose and treat patients. Either way, accuracy is extremely critical. Many doctors and physicians still use handwritten chart notes even though the acceptability rate is becoming lower and lower. The role of a skilled medical transcriptionist is declining by the day as transcription documentation requires a lot of manual work, and more hospitals are gravitating towards a digital system, right from transcription (voice to text) to record-keeping (data warehousing). The coming decade will see a decline in available jobs for medical transcriptionists. The SPEAR voice-to-command (ASR) solution from Think-a-Move, Ltd. has been proven in high-noise military applications and is perfect for embedment in health care as well as industrial system where background noise and fast response to voice command is...
