A medical rehabilitation diagnoses transcription method that integrates continuous and isolated word recognition

This paper describes a practical dictation system that is able to compensate for the lack of a large text database and reports on the results of field tests in which the system was used to make medical rehabilitation diagnosis reports in a hospital. Our dictation system uses two recognition engines: continuous speech recognition and isolated word (including connected words) recognition engines. When a user makes a report, the two recognition engines can be selectively operated in a single window through voice commands or mouse click. The system operates on common personal computers under the Windows O.S. A field test conducted in noisy therapeutic work rooms that compared the performance of speech input system comparing to conventional keyboard input system for the medical rehabilitation field, demonstrated the effectiveness of the dictation system.
