When you install the software with the two year licence key you will need to sign up for a free Philips Speech ID. It is how Philips link the licence to you and will allow you to login and use SpeechExec Transcribe on the PC that you are currently working on, be that the office, at home, on holiday or wherever you are.
What audio formats can be played by Philips SpeechExec Transcribe?
As you would expect SpeechExec Transcribe covers the open format audio file formats, .wma – .wav – .mp3 but also the specialised digital dictation audio formats like the older .dss (Digital Speech Sound) and newer .ds2 (Digital Speech Sound Pro) format which can have individual file encryption. This is why the .ds2 audio format is preferred by legal and medical authors as their dictation is usually confidential.
If you are a typist just starting out and have been using the free (but no support, constant ads, bloatware) Express Scribe software then it is time to get serious about your job. Express Scribe can not play .ds2 audio files and can also not decrypt encrypted .ds2 audio files. Why not? Because the .ds2 audio format is owned by Philips, Olympus and Grundig. If you plan to transcribe for lawyers, barristers, doctors, surgeons or anyone in the legal or medical field you will need software that can play .ds2 audio files.
