Recently, SpeechTrans Inc. a recognized global leader in translation technology, presented it’s applied for patent application interface: SpeechOne API.
Company officials said that SpeechOne API will enable people to interact verbally even with digital devices that do not have microphones. The technology provides high-quality speech recognition, conversion, and translation on any device in real-time.
The new API is now available for white labeling, as well as in the remote microphone feature that appeared in SpeechTrans Ultimate for Windows 8.1.
Hewlett-Packard has announced the launch of a pilot test of the SpeechOne API, and will eventually add its features to the HP MyRoom virtual meeting software.
SpeechOne API can process conversations of various durations in almost 44 different languages. The system can recognize voice orders using a phone or other mic-equipped device, and then transmit data to the rest of the electronic devices via the cloud.
With the new API, the company can implement smart home technology, in which a mobile phone or other device can control the lights, stove, microwave, and other household appliances using voice commands only.
“The API technology comes from SpeechTrans Ultimate for Hearing Impaired, which allows the hearing impaired to make phone calls without assistance from a human operator,” explained Yan Auerbach, COO of SpeechTrans, in a press statement.
He further added: “In conversation with our partners at Microsoft (News – Alert), we realized the underlying technology could be used for an extraordinary range of applications as an API. Now, our partners are discovering uses for it that we never considered. The most advanced applications could transform the way we interact with everything from cars, airplanes, and industrial equipment to home appliances, vending machines, and much more.”
Adapted to be used with the SpeechTrans Bluetooth Wristband Watch, the SpeechOne API will soon allow users to send speech-to-text translations to translators for verification at a low cost, ensuring 100 percent accuracy.
