What is Front End Speech Recognition (FESR)?

Front End Speech Recognition (FESR) is the technology whereby speech is translated into text in real time. 

Dictating authors can utilize any computer which is setup with the FESR software using a hand-held microphone.  As you dictate, your speech is converted into text in real time making the report available immediately for your review, editing, and sign off.  

FESR is well suited for those clinicians who have a clinical/workflow requirement to have reports transcribed on a STAT basis, and/or those clinicians who wish to have full control over the creation, quality and distribution of their reports. One of the key benefits of using FESR is a high level of personal customization decreasing the total amount of dictation needed.  Your existing speech profile based on your current dictation practice is pulled in to this application which allows for a higher voice recognition rate.

A value-add is the ability to use FESR in other applications on the same PC by simply placing your cursor in any document/email, etc. and speak – your speech will be translated into text.

Transcription Services is using M*Modal - Fluency Flex as our FESR platform.
