We give the
entire SpeechWare TableMike series our "Best in Class" award. While
there are important functionality differences between the 3 models,
they all share characteristics that set them apart from all other
table-mounted microphones on the market, including: 1) Auto-gain
technology allowing automatic mic volume adjustments when changing
distance from the mic, 2) outstanding digital signal processing to
eliminate noise, 3) unique ability to use this microphone from
distances between 10 and 20 inches and 4) a highly intuitive and
functional "TableMike Configuration Application" which allows
simple programming of accessory buttons. See the video below for a
"hands on" comparison of the 3 models.
Push Button Simplicity! All of our current
generation SpeechWare TableMikes feature newly designed
push-buttons which are large, visible and respond to a gentle push.
In addition, the newly released "TableMike Configuration Utility"
allows programming of the two volume buttons to affect up to six
actions including initiating Dragon commands, Dragon Hotkeys, and
emulation of computer key-strokes in all Windows applications,
including versions of Dragon.
This is the
"third generation" TableMike from SpeechWare and the result of
several years of the best Belgian engineering and input from a
number experienced speech recognition users/resellers including
Chuck Runquist, Larry Allen, Lunis Orcutt and Speech Recognition
Solutions. Unique to this most recent build of the TableMike is
larger, more easily pushed buttons which allow very simple use of
the volume buttons with the TableMike Configuration Utility
(available as free download).
year (extension to 2 years if you register the
changes from the first generation include 1) a more sensitive
microphone element and 2) changes in the circuit board that
includes "declicking" algorithms to heighten further the immunity
from external noise. We have extensively tested the
second-generation electronics and found it to be truly amazing.
Unlike any other product we know, it allows practical dictation
from a distance up to 20 inches. In terms of accuracy and external
noise rejection, this product will perform exactly like the 6-in-1.
Please view the "product demo" link with the 6-in1 to get an idea
of how the 3-in-1 works. This "third generation" table mike differs
from the second generation unit only in have somewhat larger, more
easily pushed buttons on the base. Functionally it is identical to
the second generation 3-in-1 TableMike
bonus is that the Up/Down volume buttons can be reconfigured using
the TableMike Configuration Utility to emulate up to six different
keystrokes/hotkeys or Dragon commands.
will also work well with a Mac computer. For a great review on use

3 in one tablemike
From Michael of Durham, North Carolina on 6/6/2016.
Eventually worked well. Had to do "check microphone" 5-6 times before it (or the softrware) settled on a volume range that produced good quality voice and good quality accuracy. Did all this in the near field mode (blue light) did not bother to train the farfield mode (green light). I think there was something to this effect in the instructions you provided. I'm pretty satisfied with the purchase.
From Michael Gherrity of San Diego, California on 4/22/2016.
You must choose between several configurations for installation. So it is not as simple as plugging in a USB cable. However, the noise cancellation appears to work very well compared to my old microphone.
From Marvin Szymkowicz of Bethesda, Maryland on 4/7/2016.
I am a long time Dragon user. I bought this to replace a USB headset mic. The headset gave accurate voice recognition, but the process of putting on and taking off the headset was a disincentive to using it. The tableMike is always ready to go. The TableMike is not quite as accurate as the headset, but it is an acceptable trade-off for the convenience.
From Paul B of Sacramento, California on 8/9/2015.
Very easy to set up. I use it for Dragon and the quality and convenience are much better than the series of headsets that I previously used. Very satisfied.
From Anonymous of oakland, Maine on 8/29/2014.
great microphone, actually recording this with it. Base is nice and heavy, feels sturdy. Connections seem solid. I have been a dragon user for over 10 years. I have been a medical transcription dragon user for at least 3 years. This particular microphone has a normal and VOIP range which works out great. I haven't played much around with the long-range. I'm usually at a computer between patient's inputting information. Nice on off feature on the unit allows you to maintain recording mode on the DragonBar, but mute locally. So far word recognition is pretty good. Seems comparable to any of the headsets I was using, and the great thing is I don't have that hanging around my neck anymore. I was only using the microphone component and didn't like the headset on my head anyway as I really don't need to hear anything.overall pleased, could've been a little less expensive though.
