    visuel KIT_speech to text
    Transcription of human speech into written word sequences read more
     

    Target users and customers

    Companies who want to integrate the transcription of human speech into their products.

    Application sectors

    Speech-to-Text technology is key to indexing multimedia content as it is found in multimedia databases or in video and audio collections on the World Wide Web, and to make it searchable by human queries. In addition, it offers a natural interface for submitting and executing queries.

    This technology is further part of speech-translation services. In combination with machine translation technology, it is possible to design machines that take human speech as input and translate it into a new language. This can be used to enable human-to-human combination across the language barrier or to access languages in a cross-lingual way.

    Vocapia Research provides a language identification technology* that can identify languages in audio data. (* Under license from LIMSI-CNRS) read more
     

    Target users and customers

    The targeted users and customers of language recognition technologies are actors in the multimedia and call center sectors, including academic and industrial organizations, as well as actors in the defense domain, interested in the processing of audio documents, and in particular if the collection of documents contains multiple languages.

    Application sectors

    A language identification system can be run prior to a speech recognizer. Its output is used to load the appropriate language dependent speech recognition models for the audio document.

    Alternatively, the language identification might be used to dispatch audio documents or telephone calls to a human operators fluent in the corresponding identified language.

    Other potential applications also involve the use of LID as a front-end to a multi-lingual translation system. This technology can also be part of automatic system for spoken data retrieval or automatic enriched transcriptions.
