BigHand Speech Recognition Module Expedites Out-of-Hours Document Production

BigHand Speech Recognition Module Expedites Out-of-Hours Document Production

BigHand for BlackBerry® smartphones

(PRWEB) November 16, 2010

BigHand, the leading voice productivity vendor in the professional services and public sector community, has today announced that over 80 firms have implemented BigHand’s integrated Server-based Speech Recognition module to improve productivity. Authors are able to record their dictation via the desktop or mobile device such as BlackBerry®, iPhone® or Windows® phone, and send direct to the Dragon NaturallySpeaking™ speech server from Nuance Communications. Text is returned to the author via email or sent to an assistant for proofing, improving productivity on-the-go.

William Chetwood, Partner at specialist shipping law firm Bentleys, Stokes and Lowless submits dictation via BlackBerry to the Speech Recognition server to improve out-of-hours productivity. Chetwood comments:

“Being able to dictate into my BlackBerry and have the text back by email a few minutes later is perhaps the most exciting BigHand development since it introduced me to digital dictation. The major drawback to speech recognition has always been the training time – few busy lawyers feel they have time to do this. The beauty of server based speech recognition is that the training can be taken away from the lawyer and performed by a secretary in the ordinary course of producing documents.

I have only had the “text to email” for a few weeks but already, I would be very reluctant to lose it. The first time I used it, it produced an email in a fraction of the time that it would have taken me to type on my BlackBerry. The following weekend, whilst at home, I produced an arbitration pleading entirely by BlackBerry dictation/speech recognition, saving me a 3 hour round trip to the office. Accuracy is consistently high. We will be rolling this out to more lawyers who need to work out of hours as soon as possible.”

BigHand’s Speech Recognition Module and mobility apps for BlackBerry, iPhone and Windows phone can significantly improve productivity for legal and professional services firms. Any firm interested in a free speech recognition user assessment should email enquiry(at)bighand(dot)com.

How much should a lawyer-drafted terms & conditions document for a website cost?

Question by Sparky: How much should a lawyer-drafted terms & conditions document for a website cost?
My website includes creating free account, uploading, viewing, and downloading photographs. I thus need a terms and conditions document drafted for those who try to upload copyrighted content. I think I’ll also need a “take down” document for those who wish to make copyright claims on given photograph uploads. How much should this legal service cost?

Best answer:

Answer by hensleyclaw
this will depend on how long it takes to create the document. Most lawyers charge by the hour for everything. You need to speak to an attorney that deal with intellectual property to get a clear answer.

Help!! Any Family Law Lawyers amongst us? I need some help interpreting part of a legal custody document…?

Question by gotmini02: Help!! Any Family Law Lawyers amongst us? I need some help interpreting part of a legal custody document…?
“Should either parent require childcare for ten or more hours while the child is in his/her physical care,the other parent shall have first option to provide such care”.
My daughter drops her toddler at day care at 745am. She usually is able to pick her up her baby before or at the 10hr mark. However does the wording of the above custody order imply that the father has the legal right to pick up the baby as early as he wants from day care once he determines that the baby will be in daycare over 10hours

Best answer:

Answer by jesipy
i think it means that instead of going to day care, he has the option to provide the care instead.
