SpeechWare Brings Assistive Technology to Your Voice

April 2024 Update:

The latest model of the Speechware  6-in-1 TableMike® (pictured, right), natively operates with Dolbey’s state-of-the-art speech recognition technology, Fusion Narrate® powered by nVoq.™  The result is that accuracy has never been better.

"SpeechWare took an already excellent product and made it even better. The performance of this microphone is simply the best in class," says Doug Lear, Assistive Technology Specialist at Northwest Ergonomics, "Accuracy has never been better due to the low low latency, high-sensitivity noise cancelling and background noise rejection, and self-adjusting input."

"When I am setting up a user to take advantage of Dragon dictation software, this is the preferred microphone for greatest accuracy and most reliable performance," said Doug.

Fusion Narrate

Fusion Narrate is a speech recognition software that is known for being accurate and dynamic, allowing the user to truly dictate and control their device with their voice.

The SpeechWare USB 6-in-1 TableMike is the "gold standard" in USB microphones and the preferred device installed by Northwest Ergonomics' technicians. 

The praises about the USB 6-in-1 TableMike are well sung to this article in MacWorld online:

When the microphone is in the appropriate position, and the volume is adjusted correctly, the 6-in-1 TableMike offers the best speech recognition quality of all the models I’ve tested. In addition, the level of comfort available with this type of microphone is exceptional. You don’t have to wear anything on your head, and you have no wires tethering you to your computer. And since this microphone offers excellent recognition at a foot or more from your mouth, you can lean back in your chair, move the microphone base to the edge of your desk, and dictate in a relaxed position.
