 Thank you all.
Just curious if anyone has numbers on the steno mask. Do people use it as intended? Seems a steno mask would be cheaper than Dragon Medical (yikes).

 Hi,Michael nailed the screen reader part. for speech input some type of "steno mask" -  a hand-held microphone built into a padded, sound-proof enclosure that fits over the speaker's mouth or nose and mouth. (wikipedia)would be necessary. They block outside noise, and hide what the user is saying.

I'm assuming youare strictly addressing the issue of audio being heard by others. In mostsituations, a headset is all you need for JAWS users. (Since a refreshableBraille arguably decreases privacy less than inform being displayed ona screen, I think it can be ignored in this question.)
Speech recognitionis unlikely to be addressed by anything less than someone having a semi-privateenvironment for entering sensitive personal information (SPI). Whetherspeech recognition decreases privacy is going to depend on the environment.In example, a patient medical history that involves some SPI such as apatient's DOB and health number is typically taken in a public space inemergency rooms. The reception/admission area may be somewhat removed fromseating areas in an attempt to offer some privacy. But realistically, untila patient is put into a private room, privacy in a hospital environmentis not really afforded with the curtains that partition emergency bedsand shared rooms.

Hello everyone,

I work in HealthcareIT and we've had some questions around how to protect patient privacy whensomeone is using JAWS. What are some strategies you've all used? Wouldheadphones be as simple as it needs to be? Additionally, what are someways we can protect patient information when using Speech recognition software,such as Dragon?

Appreciate any insightsthis group has!
