UK English and Improved VAD

UK English and Improved VAD Released

A United Kingdom (UK) English Acoustic Model for use with the LumenVox Speech Engine has been released. Solution and Platform Providers can now incorporate affordable speech technology for deployed speech solutions across the UK, even for users with regional accents. More>

As part of the Speech Engine, we also released a new Voice Activity Detection (VAD) technology that improves the Engine's ability to decipher a human voice from any other sound, such as music, background noise, car noise and traffic.

"Quality VAD is essential to good recognition accuracy, which is why we are committed to regularly improving this technology," said LumenVox CTO, Jim Blake. "This release not only addresses the particular needs of mobile users that make up a large majority of telephone-based speech recognition users, but really any caller that uses speech recognition in a challenging environment."
