Developed at its head offie in Banbury, Oxfordshire, Lexacom Echo is designed to remove the barriers that have limited take-up of speech recognition in the past, by offering complete flxibility with innovative pricing and no need for upfront investment or expensive PC hardware.

Customers have a choice of paying a monthly subscription for unlimited use of the service or a Pay As You Go option where they only pay for what they use, with no minimum term, no prepayment and no charge for correcting errors.

Lexacom managing director Dr Andrew Whiteley said: “Lexacom Echo represents a great step forward for professional Speech Recognition. I am delighted that we can give our customers the opportunity to fid the most effective tools for them to create documents accurately, securely and efficiently – all from within Lexacom 3.”
