MacSpeech, Inc announced the release of MacSpeech
Scribe, the world’s most advanced personal transcription
solution for the Macintosh.
Now for the first time, a Macintosh user running Snow Leopard
can transcribe their recorded voice into written text with up to
99% accuracy, in a single button click. MacSpeech Scribe is
available immediately, in English only, exclusively for Macworld
Conference and Expo 2010 attendees and currently registered
MacSpeech Dictate 1.5 customers for US$99, regularly suggested
retail priced at US$149.
“MacSpeech Scribe significantly advances the MacSpeech quest to
create the best speech recognition and, now, transcription
solutions on the Macintosh,” explained Andrew Taylor, founder
and CEO of MacSpeech, Inc. “One person, their profile, an audio
file, one button click. It just doesn’t get any easier than that.”
MacSpeech Scribe automatically creates an individual speech
profile, in one of 13 different English dialects, from an
initial recorded sample of the person’s voice. A single
MacSpeech Scribe license can create and use up to six individual
voice profiles, each compatible with all accepted audio file
formats. MacSpeech Scribe accepts audio files in .wav, .aif,
.aiff, .m4v, mp4, or .m4a formats.
When composing a letter or other document by voice, users can
include spoken punctuation, and MacSpeech Scribe will
automatically include the punctuation marks in the output text.
