Consumer speech recognition programs are perfect for the small business person, student, or retiree looking to create a lasting record of their life experiences. They are simple to use and incredibly accurate out of the box.
They differ from their professional counterparts in key areas, however:
1. No specialty languages for Medical or Legal, greatly reducing accuracy within those professions
2. Consumer versions cannot use advanced custom commands
3. Consumer versions cannot save the audio file attached to the document for future editing
4. Consumer versions do not support Remote Desktop Connection
5. Inability to dictate into an EMR / EHR
