LumenVox Announces Version 5.5 at SpeechTEK West

San Diego, CA (FEB 8, 2005) — LumenVox will be announcing Version 5.5 of their Speech Recognition Engine, Speech Tuner, and Speech Platform at SpeechTEK West 2005, in San Francisco, California from February 21st through February 23rd. LumenVox will be demonstrating Version 5.5 in Booth 307 during the two-day exposition, being held at the San Francisco Marriott.

The latest version of the Speech Engine offers dramatically improved performance, with the introduction of lattice based confidence scores. LumenVox has also introduced improved barge-in and/or End-of-Speech (EOS) detection, which will detect when the caller has begun speaking, finished speaking or paused while speaking. LumenVox allows developers to custom-design their own grammars on-the-fly, filter out-of-vocabulary words, and modify the engine and grammar performance at run-time. Built-in grammars handle single digits, currency, natural numbers, and date and time.

The Speech Tuner is a complete maintenance tool that allows end-users, value-added resellers, and platform providers to perform tuning, and testing of any speech-driven application created on multiple ASR platforms. Version 5.5 of the Tuner enables speech application tuning, parameter testing, grammar testing, version upgrade testing, and transcription. With this GUI-based tool, companies developing speech applications on various ASR platforms can bring speech application tuning in-house and avoid professional service fees.

The latest addition to the Speech Platform is support for a VB ActiveX exe interface. This interface now allows developers to program their required application logic, with the widely used programming language, Visual Basic. Developers will now be able to utilize common pre-built libraries to access databases and pre-made integration components. This gives speech application developers the option to extend their Designer projects with either C/C++ or Visual Basic.
