SpinVox Launches Open Access to Its Speech Platform with Web API
SpinVox will launch its Open Application Programming Interface (API) suite at CTIA Wireless and VoiceCon Orlando 2009 events, enabling businesses of any size to benefit from its carrier-grade Voice Message Conversion System (VMCS).
VMCS is the result of a $100 million investment program by SpinVox and five years in research and development, leading to large-scale live implementations with carriers worldwide over the past three years.
SpinVox Open API has two components: SpinVox Create, which is now live, and SpinVox Wholesale, which will be rolled out in the first half of 2009.
“Having built the world’s best, live speech-to-text message conversion system and seen it operate under extreme pressure in live environments, we’re excited to make the system available to companies and individuals who can take advantage of our investment to innovate and grow the entire speech marketplace,” said Christina Domecq, CEO and co-founder of SpinVox. “Speech 2.0 applications and services will be one of a cluster of innovations that are driving mass-market transformation as people are increasingly enabled to rediscover the power of their voice.”
SpinVox Open API offers access to commercial-grade speech services without the need to invest in commercial speech engines that then have to be integrated, adapted, and trained to meet specific uses, while managing constantly growing dictionaries.
