method for solving problems that uses a finite number of instructions
back-end speech recognition
system in which a doctor's completed report is sent to a speech recognition engine and a text version is created for the medical transcription editor to edit. The term back-end comes from the part of the process in which the SRT is used (in this case, in the back of the process).
A mutual relationship or connection between two or more things. Correlations are found using reasoning skills by making inferences.
To guess or infer something unknown by using what is known
front-end speech recognition
The doctor dictates the report and the speech recognition engine produces the text version in real time. The physician can read, edit, and alter the text at the time of the report's creation. The term front-end comes from the part of the process in which the SRT is used (in this case, in the front of the process).
The centrally located keyboard positions for your fingers on a keyboard. The home row can change according to task and often does with different speech recognition programs.
A conclusion reached on the basis of evidence and reasoning.
Keyboard keystroke sequences that eliminate the use of the mouse. There are different types of keyboard shortcuts:
1) Editing - These shortcuts allow you to cut and paste text in a document, move and copy documents, etc.
2) Navigation - These shortcuts help you get around your computer or an application you are running.
3) Audio - These manipulate the audio playback.
medical speech recognition editor
Also known as medical transcription editor. This career emphasizes the verification, research, and editing of medical records (as opposed to creating them from an audio file, as a medical transcriptionist does).
natural language processing
A subfield of artificial intelligence and linguistics. It studies the problems of automated generation and understanding of natural human languages. Natural language generation systems convert information from computer databases into normal-sounding human language, and natural language understanding systems convert samples of human language into more formal representations that are easier for computer programs to manipulate.
The power of the mind to think, understand, and form judgments by a process of logic.
A doubting or questioning attitude or state of mind.
speech recognition engine
The piece of software that takes what a doctor says and turns it into a report, which the MTE will edit.
The process of converting a speech signal to a sequence of words by means of an algorithm implemented as a computer program. Sometimes known as automatic speech recognition.
The conversion of a spoken language audio signal to textual representation. Talk turns into type.
the conversion of a text input into an audio speech signal. Type turned into talk.
The process of establishing the truth, accuracy, or validity of something.
The process of identifying a speaker by computational methods on an audio signal.
also referred to as acoustic modeling. The process by whoch a speech recognition engine is taught to recognize the vocabulary, grammar, and vocal stylings of a particular person (e.g., the doctor).
the sequence of industrial, administrative, or other processes through which a piece of work passes from initiation to completion.
