Dragon SDK Server Edition

Speech-enable background transcription workflow


Dragon SDK Server Edition (DSS) provides a set of tools and interfaces to help software developers successfully build and integrate automatic speech recognition into transcription workflow systems.

Easy integration

DSS is specifically designed for integration into solutions that require speech recognition to run in the background, without any interactive dictation or self-editing by users.

Flexible implementation

Back-end speech recognition enables the batch processing of recorded speech from a range of devices, including digital recorders, smartphones, tablets, and telephone dictation systems.

Save time and cost

Although not a transcription workflow itself, DSS can be integrated within existing systems to automate transcription, increasing transcription productivity and reducing transcription costs.

Maintain current workflows

Retain the look, feel and entire workflow of your interface, while adding speech recognition running in the background.

Customise vocabulary

Create customised vocabularies to tailor the nomenclature and words to specific industries, companies, departments or job roles.

Fast and accurate transcription

Deliver amazingly accurate transcription recognition results by using personal profiles that store specific speaker information, and deliver accurate results the more it is used.
