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!

 The Hague’s Bronovo hospital in The Netherlands has converted to 100% speech recognition for all departments - it has improved service quality, and profits.

 Says Dr. Pieter Lambregts, who oversaw the speech recognition for the Neurology group in the hospital.."The overall efficiency gain and time saving allowed us to increase our department’s activities by 20% without having to hire additional secretaries.”

 Speech recognition is widely used in the Health Care industries in the Netherlands; SpeechMagic from Philips is the platform for over 80% of the speech recognition systems.

 Wilfred Reinhard, Bronovo’s IT Manager noted “We wanted to realize the country’s first all-speech recognition hospital because we knew how critical the availability of clinical information is for the delivery of care.”.

The entire case study from G2 Speech is available here.

Goog411 speech recognition to GE phones

 The GE Premiere DECT 6.0 28821FJ3 has a cool new "GOOG-411" button centered on the handset, that get's instant free business information calls!

 The button auto-dials Google’s free, voice-activated, speech recognition-driven business directory assistance service and becomes a feature on more than a dozen GE phones to be available in April 2008.

 Connections are done for free, leaving your dial tone provider out of luck ;-) when it comes to directory assistance call revenues.

The GE Dect Wireless with the Goog411 button..

 (This deal benefits Google in one particularly semi-interesting area, as it provides a "no brainer" option for even more users to give Google more phoneme samples it might not otherwise have gleaned, of independent spoken audio samples in it's quest for advanced speaker-independent speech recognition, as well)

Dynamic advertising via speech recognition in videos

 Cheap shots are often fired at Microsoft for being a little behind the "cutting edge" curve.

 Not so, as we well know; And the world's leader in speech recognition technology has ventured into a huge leap forward yet again.. Dynamically served contextual advertising, via automated speech recognition, on the spoken audio in videos, from Microsoft's adCenter Labs' technology.

 This technology enables ads to be rendered based on the contextual spoken audio in a video. For example, if the topic of the video was gardening, ads related to gardening or lawn improvement could be served in an adjacent text-based ad as the video played. For advertisers, this provides new & unique access to consumers.

 The YouTube video below makes a "video worth a thousand words.."

  ..Wow....What else could we say?
