Introducing the Olympus RecMic II – the quiet achiever on the speech recognition microphone front
The Olympus RecMic II is the quiet achiever on the speech recognition microphone front. It may not be as bold and flashy as its Philips and Nuance counterparts, but it sure does pack a punch when it comes to essential functions which enhance audio clarity for speech recognition use.
If you’re a medical, legal or business professional and you need a serious dictation tool for high quality work, then the Olympus RecMic II is a device that you need to turn your attention to. Starting at $399, users can now get pristine audio quality even in noisy environments. Olympus has designed this device for accurate results with speech recognition, no matter where you are.
How the RecMic II adapts to you
When you purchase this device, you are guaranteed a long-lasting device that produces high quality and accurate audio. This allows for speech recognition to be performed with superior accuracy. The device has a noise analyser function which assesses the ambient noise levels of the user’s environment and suggests an ideal recording mode.
You can then change the mode to one of the three:
- Blue for quiet environment,
- Green for speech recognition in noisy environments, and
- Red for dictating in a noisy environment.
As the image indicates, the user has a choice of four speech recognition presets: Olympus, Custom, Dragon and Windows SR Mode, which can be used with software such as Outlook or a specific medical program.
Users have the option to customise their recording modes further by installing an application that allows users to easily configure their RecMic to a speech recognition software of their choice. A built-in acceleration sensor detects the position of the RecMic and adjusts its settings.
When you place the device on a desk, the microphone automatically mutes. When you pick up the device, the microphone automatically resumes recording and when you place it on the stand, the microphone automatically sets to Hands-Free Dictation Mode.
It is very useful to have such a variety of modes that can be configured straight from the palm of your hand.
RecMic II Noise cancellation system
One of the most attractive features about the RecMic II is the two-microphone system. Users can now stop worrying about noisy environments! Having strong directionality on the microphones is one of the key aspects to achieving accurate speech recognition results.
When the Directionality is turned OFF, the noises from the surroundings are recorded. When the Directionality is turned ON, thanks to the two omni-directional microphones, the RecMic II is able to focus on the speaker like a human being could when conversing. The surrounding sounds are largely “tuned out”. As mentioned already, this is very beneficial for speech recognition.
In summary, the Olympus RecMic II series is a top of the range device for dictating and speech recognition. A quiet achiever on the speech recognition microphone front, this new desktop dictation microphone combines advanced technologies in an innovative advanced noise cancelling system, which is ideal for noisy environments. The device allows users to speak naturally into speech recognition software with ease and accuracy.
