Improve Accuracy in Dictation Software – FIFINE ACCESSORIES

Improve Accuracy in Dictation Software

It’s not that easy to get the accuracy over 95%. It takes a lot of time for you to get good at it, no dictation apps are exceptional. The settings for different software may be slightly various, but for the input device is the same.

Here are some methods for your reference.

  1. Speak in a room with good acoustics and no background noise.The apps hear everything.
  • Your dog barking.
  • Your phone conversation, or a discussion with your coworker.
  • Words you mutter under your breath.
  • Chewing noises when you snack at your desk.

If such environment is not accessible, try to reduce noise by turning off or keeping the mic capsule away from the vibration machine like air-con, fans, etc.

  1. Position the microphone 1-2 inches from your mouth. The closer from you mouth the mic is placed, the less background noise it will absorb. It’s especially true for omnidirectional mic, like Fifine K668.
  2. You would want the input level of computer to be somewhere around 80% or so. You get a bit little lower than that, the audio would be muffle, which has negative impact on the accuracy.
  3. Hold the microphone in a comfortable position, and consistently each time you use it.

 

For specific apps, below are the suggestions to improve accuracy on Dragon NaturallySpeaking.

    Two more tip from the actual user of Fifine K670 with Dragon Naturallyspeaking.
    1.When using a new microphone, you may need to completely redid my recognition training with the software using the new mic. That did the trick.
    2.There is a very fine point between maximum sensitivity and distortion when using the gain dial on K670 (or K669&669B and K056&058). Only experimentation will get you to that point.
