A long-time fan of dictation and voice recognition, I couldn’t help but notice a slew of software exhibitors at LegalTech New York who have offerings in that area (See my post of Feb. 23, 2008: dictation with 5 references; April 8, 2008: use commute as time to dictate; and May 27, 2008: nuggets of learning).
Here are some tidbits I gleaned from a quick read of their marketing material. In-house counsel should try out this productivity tool.
