    Automatic speech recognition, also known as speech-to-text, is the transcription of speech into (machine-readable) text by a computer read more
     

    Target users and customers

    • Researchers
    • Developers
    • Integrators

    Application sectors

    The use of automatic speech recognition is so manifold that it is hard to list here. The main usages today are customer interaction via the telephone, healthcare dictation and usage on car navigation systems and smartphones. These applications will with increasingly better technology extend to audio mining, speech translation and an increased use of human computer interaction via speech.

     
    Q-Tech-Technicolor-Audience-visuel
    Automatically characterize in-home audience and level of attention read more
     

    Target users and customers

    All content providers may be interested in the automatic characterization of the in-home audience. When personalization of video – either Video on Demand (VoD) or broadcast – or ads is targeted, these same providers will see an interest in having this module to help the automatic personalization of provided content.

    The audience characterization module may also be used by end users to manage their own content at home. Furthermore, content providers and advertisers will be interested in the ‘level of attention’ information provided by the module.

    Application sectors

    Provided content personalization
    Knowing what the audience is:

    • VoD portals may be personalized and proper home pages may be displayed;
    • Ads may be personalized;
    • According videos and broadcast programs may be proposed.

    Q-Tech-Vocapia-automatic speechtranscription-visuel
    Vocapia Research develops core multilingual large vocabulary speech recognition technologies* for voice interfaces and automatic audio indexing applications. This speech-to-text technology is available for multiple languages. (* Under license from LIMSI-CNRS) read more
     

    Target users and customers

    The targeted users and customers of speech-to-text transcription technologies are actors in the multimedia and call center sector, including academic and industrial organizations interested in the automatic mining processing of audio or audiovisual documents.

    Application sectors

    This core technology can serve as the basis for a variety of applications: multilingual audio indexing, teleconference transcription, telephone speech analytics, transcription of speeches, subtitling…

    Large vocabulary continuous speech recognition is the key technology for enabling content-based information access in audio and audiovisual documents. Most of the linguistic information is encoded in the audio channel of audiovisual data, which once transcribed can be accessed using text-based tools.

    Via speech recognition, spoken document retrieval can support random access using specific criteria to relevant portions of audio documents, reducing the time needed to identify recordings in large multimedia
    databases. Some applications are data-mining, news-on-demand, and
    media monitoring.
