  • Patent number: 10430156
    Abstract: A system and method for allowing user intervention in a speech recognition pipeline is presented. Embodiments may include receiving, at a computing device, a speech signal at a speech recognition engine, the speech signal being associated with an application. Embodiments may further include generating one or more suggested speech results at the speech recognition engine, the suggested speech results based upon, at least in part, the speech signal. Embodiments may also include displaying, at a graphical user interface associated with the computing device, the one or more suggested speech results prior to applying a final speech result. Embodiments may further include receiving a non voice-based selection of at least one of the one or more suggested speech results and applying the non voice-based selection to the application.

  • Publication number: 20190005196
    Abstract: Data access rights are validated by using data proxies, so that providers of services such as speech recognition are not required to know the identity and access rights of users. The need for keeping user accounts and associated data access rights synchronized between systems such as hospital active directory systems, Electronic Health Record/Electronic Medical Record (EHR/EMR) systems, and speech recognition systems is, therefore, removed. Access rights are determined using proxy data, in order to provide access to confidential data, based on the provision of the proxy data in place of user credentials. Secure access to Protected Health Information (PHI) and other confidential data is guaranteed without having to provide the user credentials, because ownership of the data provided as proxy data is equivalent to presence of access rights to the proxied data.

  • Publication number: 20160125881
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide systems and methods for facilitating dictation. Speech input may be provided to an audio input device of a computing device. A speech recognition engine at the computing device may obtain text corresponding to the speech input. The computing device may transmit the text to a remotely-located storage device. A login webpage that includes a session identifier may be accessed from a target computing device also located remotely relative to the storage device. The session identifier may be transmitted to the storage device and, in response, a text display webpage may be received at the target computing device. The text display webpage may include the speech-derived text and may be configured to automatically copy the text to a copy buffer of the target computing device. The speech-derived text may also be provided to native applications at target computing devices or NLU engines for natural language processing.

  • Patent number: 9274746
    Abstract: A multi-modal user interface is described that hides response latency delays. A graphical user interface (GUI) supports different user input modalities including low delay inputs which respond to user inputs without significant delay, and high latency inputs which have a significant response latency after receiving a user input before providing a corresponding completed response. The GUI accepts user inputs in a sequence of mixed input modalities independently of response latencies without waiting for responses to high latency inputs, and responds to each user input in the sequence as if each preceding user input in the sequence had been performed without response latencies.
