Wireless Speech Recognition ..

Speech recognition is now primarily wireless; We've migrated fast, to universal wireless access-communcation devices.

Often, the speech recognition is remote based - And the better signal we send it, the better it performs.

Here, we hope you'll find ideas, technology or projects using hands free and/or mobile devices to make wireless speech recognition a rewarding and useful universal tool!

Fluency Voice gets transcription accuracy patent

 
 Fluency Voice Technology announced on March 7th that they have been granted an interesting patent on tweaking recognizer accuracy.
 

 · Click to see original patent press release · 
 The patent revolves around sending speech to the recognizer multiple times, and each time distorted a bit differently. All the resulting recognitions are then compared; an evaluation is done to decide which result(s) is most likely to be correct - that one is returned to the application. Fluency says they have applied this technique to all leading speech recognizers.

 Via the press release:
"Dr Trevor Thomas, the inventor and Chief Scientist at Fluency, stated 'This invention will deliver important improvements to recognition accuracy and will increase the performance of our spoken dialogue systems when compared to similar dialogue systems that just make conventional use of a speech recognizer'.

 Interesting stuff. We're waiting on feedback from some of our trusted sources to see just how far-reaching they think this technology is, re: transcription accuracy of continuous speech!

Now seriously. The computing power needed to perform multiple full runs of a recognizer with a medium sized language model could be used for a LOT of stuff. It better have astonishing rec. rates.

I saw this, and visited their web page & another article.

It looks (at least from what's on pages) that this is aimed at mostly command & control or short phrases becuz for example it talks about improving the recognition of postal codes and short stuff.
