Speechmatics Launches Global Spanish Language Pack

Speechmatics, a provider of speech recognition technology, today launched a speech-to-text transcription global Spanish language pack that support all major Spanish accents and dialects. Global Spanish (GS) is a single Spanish language pack trained on data drawn from across Latin America.

Speechmatics used the latest advancements in machine learning and applied proprietary language training techniques to create the GS language pack. With Speechmatics' GS model, businesses using speech recognition for Spanish voice data won't have to jump between multiple language packs to optimize accuracy of their transcriptions.

The release of the Global Spanish pack follows Speechmatics' Global English language pack.

"With Spanish being the second most natively spoken language across the world, it was time that businesses had access to an all-encompassing language pack to help streamline the transcription process and increase accuracy," said Ian Firth, vice president of products at Speechmatics, in a statement. "Our pack does just that by accommodating multiple accents, dialects, and regional variations. By defying the industry convention of single accent-centric packs, Speechmatics is on a journey to make all languages truly accessible to businesses with our global language approach."
