The Dictaphone PowerMic™ III from Nuance is specially designed for enhanced physician productivity, providing ergonomic control of both standard dictation and speech recognition functions. The PowerMic III microphone offers simplified, thumb-control operation for dictating, navigating, reviewing, and editing speech recognition generated documentation. The PowerMic III advances physician PC dictation to a new level, making it easier and faster to control voice recording, navigate and select fields in on-screen templates and standard reports, and move throughout recognized text reports for review and editing.

The Nuance® PowerMic III is a handheld microphone featuring simplified, thumb-control operation (for dictating, editing, navigating, and reviewing documents using speech recognition), programmable buttons, and integrated mouse functionality. It is ideal for professionals who are looking for new levels of dictation speed, ease-of-use and productivity.


Robust and ergonomic design

With its robust and ergonomic design, the PowerMic III can travel with you anywhere to get your documentation job done. As an example, police officers or other personnel who may want to fill out forms, write detailed case notes or file reports when they are out of the office, can quickly and easily pick up the PowerMic III, turn it on and start working. In situations on-the-go with more ambient noise, a microphone may give better accuracy than using a built-in laptop mic, and the PowerMic III is faster and more convenient for these professionals to use than putting on a headset.


Full dictation control

The PowerMic III advances professional dictation to a new level, making it easier and faster to control voice recording, navigate and select fields in on-screen templates and standard reports, and move throughout recognized text reports for review and editing. In addition to providing complete dictation control, the PowerMic III incorporates full-function, Microsoft® compatible, PC-mouse capabilities into the microphone to reduce the need to continually move between the microphone, mouse, and keyboard when working with documents.

Using the PowerMic III, users can rapidly navigate report template fields, then record and use auto-text capabilities to insert recognized text into report template fields. By combining an ergonomic hand microphone with PC mouse functions, professionals will gain new levels of dictation speed, ease-of-use, and productivity.


Programmable buttons

While the buttons are initially set for the most commonly used default commands, every corporate environment, workflow and even individual may be unique. Using the PowerMic III with the supported Dragon® products allow users to quickly and easily select the function that they want assigned to all the buttons to perform specific frequent tasks. A dictate button to turn on and off the mic as you speak with “press to talk” capability by default can be assigned to a button that is most convenient to the user. A particular button can also be assigned to advance sequentially through variable fields in a document to make it quick and easy to fill out frequently used forms by voice.
