    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.

     
    Q-Tech-Technicolor-Audience-visuel

    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.

    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.

    Topic segmentation of automatic speech transcripts read more
     

    Target users and customers

    The targeted users and customers are the multimedia industry actors, and any content and service provider with speech data.

    Application sectors

    • Spoken document processing
     
    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.

     
    Q-Tech-LIMSI-RITEL-visuel-2
    A spoken and interactive QA system that helps a user to find an answer to his question, spoken or written, in a collection of documents. Read more
     

    Target users and customers
