This article can help you troubleshoot common issues with Dentrix Ascend Voice.
Make sure to follow these recommendations:
Click (or tap) the Dentrix Ascend Voice icon to turn on voice recognition immediately before you intend to speak commands, and turn off voice recognition immediately after you have finished charting. If voice recognition is turned on too early or remains active for too long, you may inadvertently trigger commands that affect your charting.
If there is background noise in your office, such as conversations, you may experience some difficulty with Dentrix Ascend Voice not hearing your voice. Ensure that you are using the type of microphone that is best suited for your office environment and that the microphone is installed correctly.
Issues with Dentrix Ascend Voice responding to or processing commands slowly are often due to poor Wi-Fi speed or the processing power of the machine. Please contact your IT professional for help improving these conditions.
