Hi all!

 

I'm an office based broadcast engineer for a major sports broadcaster. Due to an injury to both arms a year ago I've been left will alot of issues using a mouse and keyboard. Was hoping it would be a short term thing but 12 months on I still have ongoing issues with no end in sight.

 

Speech recognition is something I've been thinking about for a while although there are a number of barriers I'll need to overcome before it's a viable option for me.

 

Biggest issue IMO will be ambient noise.

 

The office acoustics are terrible, it's all open plan with large hard flat surfaces. You can hear quiet conversation between 2 people crystal clear 50 feet away because of the way sound can bounce around.

 

Other noise sources include;

1. A full size air-con unit in the ceiling very close to me.

2. Desktop intercomms that are at everyone's desk and literally set to a million decibels.

3. Multiple people in the office monitoring various sports audio at thier desks at the same time (also at a million decibels) Mostly Soccer, NFL, horce racing etc but could be anything.

 

So I'm thinking noise filtering is prority number 1. Very close to pulling the trigger on a Speechware flexymike DEC and a Speechware USB soundcard.

 

Wireless would be an advantage so I'd consider a "Sennheiser MB Pro 2 UC/ML" or "Philips speechone" if I wasn't missing out on much noise filtering?

 

Price isn't much of a consideration as work will be paying for it. The hassle of getting work to buy something on the hand means I'd prefer to get the best product first time round.

 

Any thoughts or opinions are welcome
