Foxlink's US Operations President, Mr. James Lee, notes: “Our customers want improved user experiences for their headset products. With Sensory’s voice recognition and speech output technologies we can add more features, while making the products easier to use".
According to their announcement's web page, speech recognition makes Bluetooth device controls far more convenient and intuitive; and having a pleasant voice confirming status and commands, rather than beeps or light flashes, adds to the VUI experience.
Once again, speech recognition easily solves a common problem: "Do I hold down the right button, or the left button? Where did I store that manual, anyway .. ??"
Moreover, analysts are predicting speech control over devices, commonly referred to as VUI (Voice User Interface), will quickly become a common device interface.
"I think this is an intermediary step for what’s going to come.." says Datamonitor analyst Daniel Hong.
Foxlink is one of the world’s largest independent manufacturers of Bluetooth headsets, a manufacturer and/or ODM for most of the major brands that use 3rd party silent OEM's.
Sensory is a market leader in embedded speech technologies and the 1st speech technology provider to port a VUI to a single chip Bluetooth solution with Cambridge Silicon Radio, a premier Bluetooth chipset manufcturer.
