Installation and Initial Enrollment
You may begin using Philips' FreeSpeech without any training,
but accuracy is improved with the standard initial training session
which lasts about twenty minutes.
The training text, consisting of tutorial material and sample
business letters, is a bit dry. Our users found it tiresome to
repeat these when training for multiple devices such as a headset
microphone, the SpeechMike dictation device, and a palm recorder.
Of all the products, fixing misrecognitions during the enrollment
training session took the longest with Philips.
