Winscribe is the Preferred Choice of ‘The Commission into Tax Appeal’ in Ireland for their Digital Dictation and Speech Recognition Project

Winscribe announces that the Commission into Tax Appeal, Ireland, have chosen Winscribe to support their users with a fast, secure and efficient digital dictation solution.

The ‘Commission into Tax Appeal’ is an independent statutory body whose main task is hearing appeals against the Revenue Commissioners’ assessments and decisions concerning taxes and duties. The Commission realised that they needed a more comprehensive and mature system for managing their dictations and document production. In particular, they were looking to move away from the costly and outdated analogue solutions that they were using.

Due to the nature of their work, the Commission into Tax Appeal required a system that provided a high level of physical, operational and system security to ensure that data would be protected. The Commissioners (who are in a quasi-judicial role and make rulings in respect of tax appeals in Ireland) also wanted to be able to produce dictation using back-end (or server-side) speech recognition into Microsoft Word to enable them to produce documents faster and reduce their reliance on support staff. This was of particular importance because of the complex nature of many of these rulings and the opportunity for time and cost-savings the technology would enable.

Winscribe worked together with the Commission to analyse their full documentation needs, assessing the opportunities for improvements and the potential benefits to be gained. Following the analyses and to meet the client’s needs effectively, Winscribe presented a solution comprising of several components, including:

  • Winscribe’s Digital Dictation Workflow Management System – Allowing the Commission to benefit from an automated and intelligent digital dictation workflow solution that centrally manages all of the Commission’s dictated work.

  • Integrated Dragon Speech Recognition – Enabling fast voice-to-text technology that reduces document turnaround time and removes the need for manual transcription.

  • More Reliable Audio Capture and Mobile Working through the adoption of Philips DPM handheld audio recording devices.
