[Histonet] voice recognition and synoptic reporting

Voice Brook seems to be the market leader.

They are powered by Nuance and Dragon which are the market leaders in the consumer market.

However, they are pricy.

Nuance offers a service that is more similar to a remote transcription service, however my guess is they rely heavily on their automated transcription software, without the cost of purchasing the software itself.

If your IT department wants to dedicate 1 or 2 FTE's to getting you up and running, a cheaper solution is to purchase the Dragon backbone from Nuance, however it will take al ot of customization to make it on par with VoiceBrook.

Just my opinion.

I was wondering if anyone could provide me some information on voice recognition software for pathology and if this would be the best (easiest) way to implement synoptic reporting for our path reports.  I am only vaguely familiar with both so any information will be of great use.
