Philips SpeechExec and Windows 10

Your computer was upgraded and now your Philips SpeechExec software is no longer working? The most likely explanation is that you were running a version of SpeechExec that is not compatible with Windows 10.

What to do?

Step 1: Check what version of SpeechExec you have

a) If you have anything prior to version 7, you will need to purchase a new license. These can be purchased from a Philips Certified partner. Contact us, if you need help finding one.

b) If you have version 7 or later, you will want to install version 8.8.880 which is free provided you still have your license key.

Step 2: On the current installation

a) Revoke your license (See this article for more information)

b) Uninstall it

Step 3: Go to the product support page for the appropriate SpeechExec version and download version 8.8.880. Choose the right link below.

a) SpeechExec Dictate and/or Transcribe
(your license key will start with SDBI or STBI)

b) SpeechExec Pro Dictate and/or Transcribe
(your license key will start with PDBI or PTBI)

c) Decompress (unzip) the download.

Step 4: Follow the installation instructions on screen and re-enter your  license key when prompted and you should be good to go!
