Our History

In the late 1990s the future founders of Speakeasy Solutions were stricken with upper limb chronic repetitive stress injuries, placing their occupations on hold. Their careers spanning the fields of administration, IT/IS and law, as well as a life-long natural affinity for technology, paved the way towards the formation of a new and highly specialized vocation: speech recognition and digital voice dictation providers.

At the time, Dragon NaturallySpeaking was in its infancy (version 3 had just been released) and the first professional digital voice recorders were entering the market. A few companies in North America were offering these products and fewer still providing accompanying services.

Speakeasy Solutions was formed in 2000 with a sincere desire to provide quality dictation solutions to professionals and those with physical limitations. Speakeasy Solutions’ founding principles were:

  • Offer honest advice with the client’s best interests in mind
  • Provide excellent service that exceeds industry standards
  • Continually improve product and service offerings through ceaseless research in order to provide clients with “the best” products, support, and service possible

These are Speakeasy Solutions’ core values, and they always will be.

Our Future

Speakeasy Solutions continually researches developing and new voice technology products for the benefit of their current clientele (medical, legal, professional, and assistive). We test products for their fitness and usefulness.Our general philosophy is “If we wouldn’t use it, we won’t sell it”.

While the founders of Speakeasy Solutions are permanently disabled from their upper limb injuries (circa 1990s), they are committed to providing speech technology solutions long into the future. It is an ever evolving and wonderfully helpful technology.
