Types of Speech Recognition Speech recognition is used in a wide range of applications.

State of the Industry Get an accurate understanding of the current state of the speech industry.

Voice Talent The Voice of your speech recognition application is really your company's first representative and interface to the customer.

Prompt Tips A few guidelines to follow when you are developing prompts for your speech recognition system Phonemes The unit of sound the recognition engine actually recognizes is the phoneme.

Transcription and Speech Training Accurate speech recognition transcription and tuning is essential.

History of Speech Recognition A brief overview of the history of speech recognition.

Psychology of Speech Communication Speech is the most basic, common and efficient form of communication.

Alternate Pronunciations Considering alternate pronunciations and spellings at the outset will help avoid errors and frustration later.

Effective Speech App Design Much of the internal work is in the design phase: building the call flow, creating grammars, recording prompts, and conducting usability testing.

How to Tune Grammars There are many places to make effective changes, but generally, we have found grammars to be the easiest and most effective place to start.

Common Prompt Tuning Issues Effective prompt design takes time and practice — some errors will not present themselves until the prompts are tested.

Practical Guide to Tuning To give and idea of how much time tuning can take, the speech industry estimates that 40-50% of total development and deployment time should be spent on the tuning process.

Error Handling Make your speech recognition system more efficient and usable by optimizing error handling.
