Philips Dictation Australia has just announced that version v10 of their popular SpeechExec dictation and transcription software for Windows will go End-of-Support on 20th November 2020.
What does end-of-support mean?
This means that there will be no more updates released for SpeechExec v10 going forward, now more development and no bug fix or security patches issues for SpeechExec v10. After the 20th November no dealer or Philips support will be given and all users will be encouraged to move to the latest supported version which is SpeechExec Pro v11 or SpeechLive.
What are my options?

Option 1. Upgrade from SpeechExec v10 to SpeechExec v11. The licence model in v11 has changed and is now a two-year subscription licence. This ensures that you will always be entitled to all updates and fixes during your two-year term.
