Abstract:

Recent advances in the development of automated speech recognition (ASR) have made routine applications for medical documentation possible. To achieve this, ASR has to be optimally integrated into the specific documentation scenario. The classification presented in this paper allows the definition of specification requirements. For two different documentation scenarios the appropriate product selection has been done according to this classification. Two evaluation studies are presented, addressing the usefulness of applying automated speech recognition.
