Tilde Partners with Microsoft for Speech-to-Text
Tilde, a European language technology provider, is partnering with Microsoft to advance inclusive education for people with hearing impairments through automatic speech recognition.
"Inclusive education is not just a goal, it's a fundamental right. By harnessing the power of technology, we are committed to creating an environment where no student is left behind," said Kaspars Kaulinš, business development director at Tilde, in a statement. "This speech-to-text solution is crucial for individuals with hearing impairments. But it's also highly beneficial as an alternative learning channel, offering an extra modality for students who are visual learners or have problems focusing on spoken language."
The solution, developed by Tilde, combines a wearable cordless microphone and speech recognition software that displays real-time captions of spoken content on interactive boards, classroom monitors, PCs, or mobile devices.
