What is a Nuance PowerMic II ?
The PowerMic II is a handheld microphone designed to enhance physician productivity by providing ergonomic control of both standard dictation and speech recognition functions. Specially designed by Nuance (formerly Dictaphone), the makers of Dragon Medical software, to be the ultimate companion device for Dragon Medical Practice Edition 2
Dictation has never been easier. The PowerMic II offers simplified thumb-control operation for dictating, navigating, reviewing and editing speech-generated documents. Control voice recordings, navigate and select fields in standard reports and templates, and move throughout familiar text documents to review and edit.
Robust features, such as Transcribe button, recognize speech or send dictation to a transcriptionist automatically when physician self-completion is not in use.
Physicians can navigate their PC using the built-in Microsoft compatible mouse trackball. This intelligent feature allows you to easily navigate your PC, locate documents, open templates, standard reports, text reports, macros and more for on-screen dictation. Once you’ve located what you’re looking for, you can dictate and send your dictation all in one device. No need for your keyboard.
The high quality construction of the PowerMic II is intended to deliver superior performance in a demanding medical environment where resilient features and reliable functionality are imperative.
