Paper Abstract

The Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, an R&D division of the National Library of Medicine, has developed a PC-based system for semi-automated entry of journal citation data into MEDLINETM. The system, called MARS for Medical Article Records System, includes many automated features but requires a few manual tasks such as scanning and the entry of certain data that are not located on the scanned page. Now that considerable computing power and speed are routinely available on desktop PCs, we think it may be possible to include speech recognition as an optional user interface to reduce operator burden and to improve speed and quality for document scanning and data entry. We undertook a study to determine if speech recognition was sufficiently accurate, reliable and immune to noise to warrant integration with MARS workstations.
