RE: [Histonet] Dictation systems

From:"Weems, Joyce"

We are in the process of purchasing Dragon as we speak. The headsets are voice activated so I am counting on that working in the gross room, although I have included a foot pedal in the purchase request which will activate the head set. I will know more next week when it is installed. Let me know if you would like follow up and I'll keep you posted. 

I can't imagine yet how they will gross and edit at the same time...

Jon, did you ever get an answer to this question?  

I am not as familiar with all the various dictation systems that I would like to be, but I have used something that may help.

You can buy a foot pedal that can be 'programmed' to send a hotkey combination to an external device, typically a PC.

In my case,  I was considering using this setup to enable and disable Dragon Naturally Speaking at the gross workstation.

We are in the process of upgrading our LIS. We are looking at moving our dictation system from our current Dictaphone analog system. We would like to use a digital system that can support VOIP.  The problem we are running into is trying to find one that supports a hands free control that our grossing pathologists need.
Does anyone have recommendations on digital systems that support foot controls?
