CyberTranscriber Targets Attorneys
SPEECH MACHINES, headquartered in Redwood City, Calif., has announced the release of its CyberTranscriber for Law. The latest edition to the company's line of speech recognition services, it is designed to enable lawyers to dictate into any telephone or cell phone, and then to receive verbatim accurate transcriptions quickly, via e-mail.
Using the service, mobile attorneys can enjoy the benefits of a "virtual secretary" from anywhere, at anytime, reports the company. They simply call a toll-free number and dictate, it explains. The service is available 24 hours a day, and requires no voice training, says the company. Document turn-around is normally under three hours, it says.
CyberTranscriber for Law also includes a billing code option that prompts attorneys to enter a numeric code with each dictation, the company notes. Monthly invoices then summarize all documents on a per-client basis, it says.
