Benefits of Adding Speech Recognition to Asterisk, Part 2

In the first part of this series, we discussed the costs and benefits associated with speech recognition, and in this segment we'll discuss how that affects the Asterisk community.

Asterisk and Speech Recognition

  • Asterisk is an ideal platform for next generation applications
  • Natively supports speech recognition via a speech API
    • LumenVox is available directly from Digium
  • VXML is available on Asterisk

Asterisk and the Global Market

  • Low cost is good for international markets
    • Includes low prices for speech recognition licenses
  • Easy for new and experimental business models

Beyond DTMF Conversions

  • Create previously unseen applications
  • Asterisk is an ideal platform for creating modern telephony applications

Case Study: iPlateU

Web 2.0 meets Asterisk: Drivers call and say the license plate, exchanging messages via website.

iPlateU would be impossible with DTMF: There would be no good way of entering the letters of the license plate, and it would also be dangerous to use while driving.

I hope this has brought you better insight about the benefits of adding speech to Asterisk. If you have any questions, feel free to email us, or call us at 877-977-0707 or +1-858-707-7700.
