This company says its digital dictation software has transformed work practices for clients such as law firm Pinsents and Lovells, where staff dictate into a microphone linked to a computer. BigHand’s software records the voice and compresses the data for speedy transmission by the firm’s computer network to a secretary for transcription. Sales at the London company, founded in 1996, have risen 69% a year from £1.4m in 2002 to £3.9m in 2004.
