Title
(EN) DISTRIBUTED DICTATION/TRANSCRIPTION SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DICTÉE/TRANSCRIPTION DISTRIBUÉ
Abstract
(EN)
A distributed dictation/transcription system is provided. The system provides a client station, dictation manager, and dictation server networked, such that the dictation manager can select a dictation server to transcribe audio from the client station. The dictation manager selects one of a plurality of dictation servers based on conventional load balancing as well as on a determination of which of the dictation servers may already have a user profile uploaded. Moreover, while selecting a dictation server and/or uploading a profile, the user or client at the client station may begin dictating, which audio would be stored in a buffer of dictation manager until a dictation server was selected and/or available. The user would receive in real time or near real time a display of the textual data that may be corrected by the user. The corrective textual data may be transmitted back to the dictation manager to update the user profile.

Un système de dictée/transcription distribuée est décrit. Le système prévoit une station client, un gestionnaire de dictée et un serveur de dictée mis en réseau, de sorte que le gestionnaire de dictée puisse sélectionner un serveur de dictée pour transcrire des données audio depuis la station client. Le gestionnaire de dictée sélectionne un serveur parmi une pluralité de serveurs de dictée à partir d'un équilibrage de charge classique ainsi que de la détermination des serveurs de dictée dans lesquels le profil d'utilisateur aurait déjà été téléchargé. De plus, dés la sélection d'un serveur de dictée et/ou le téléchargement d'un profil, l'utilisateur ou le client au niveau de la station client peut commencer la dictée. Les données audio sont alors stockées dans une mémoire tampon de gestionnaire de dictée jusqu'à la sélection et/ou la disponibilité d'un serveur de dictée. L'utilisateur reçoit en temps réel, ou pratiquement en temps réel, un affichage des données textuelles qu'il peut ainsi corriger. Les données textuelles de correction peuvent être retransmises au gestionnaire de dictée pour mettre à jour le profil d'utilisateur.
