PowerMic III

The Nuance® PowerMic IIII is a handheld microphone
featuring simplified, thumb-control operation (for
dictating, editing, navigating, and reviewing
documents using speech recognition), programmable
buttons, and integrated mouse functionality. It is ideal
for professionals who are looking for new levels of
dictation speed, ease-of-use and productivity.

Robust and ergonomic design
With its robust and ergonomic design, the PowerMic III can travel with you
anywhere to get your documentation job done. As an example, police
officers or other personnel who may want to fill out forms, write detailed case
notes or file reports when they are out of the office, can quickly and easily pick up
the PowerMic III, turn it on and start working. In situations on-the-go with more
ambient noise, a microphone may give better accuracy than using a built-in laptop
mic, and the PowerMic III is faster and more convenient for these professionals to
use than putting on a headset.
Full dictation control
The PowerMic III advances professional dictation to a new level, making it easier
and faster to control voice recording, navigate and select fields in on-screen
templates and standard reports, and move throughout recognized text reports
for review and editing. In addition to providing complete dictation control, the
PowerMic III incorporates full-function, Microsoft® compatible, PC-mouse
capabilities into the microphone to reduce the need to continually move between
the microphone, mouse, and keyboard when working with documents.
Using the PowerMic III, users can rapidly navigate report template fields, then
record and use auto-text capabilities to insert recognized text into report
template fields. By combining an ergonomic hand microphone with PC mouse
functions, professionals will gain new levels of dictation speed, ease-of-use, and

Programmable buttons
While the buttons are initially set for the most commonly used default commands,
every corporate environment, workflow and even individual may be unique. Using
the PowerMic III with the supported Dragon® products allow users to quickly and
easily select the function that they want assigned to all the buttons to perform
specific frequent tasks.
A dictate button to turn on and off the mic as you speak with “press to talk”
capability by default can be assigned to a button that is most convenient to the
user. A particular button can also be assigned to advance sequentially through
variable fields in a document to make it quick and easy to fill out frequently used
forms by voice.
