Fujitsu Set to Launch Speech Recognition Solution LiveTalk
Starting in mid-May, Fujitsu and Fujitsu Social Science Laboratory will begin sales of Fujitsu Software LiveTalk, a communications tool for people with hearing disabilities, to companies and schools in Japan.
LiveTalk can be used in situations in which multiple people share information, such as meetings or classroom settings. The software recognizes a speaker's speech, immediately converts it into text, and displays it on multiple PC screens, enabling all participants to share information in real time. LiveTalk enables smooth two-way communication with built-in functions for text input and stamp tools from PCs.
The software uses AmiVoice SP2 speech-recognition software from Advanced Media.
Features of LiveTalk include the following:
- Conversion of speech into text with speech-recognition technology and real-time display of speech with wireless LAN transmissions.
- Simultaneous multiple speakers can be processed through text conversion, processed in parallel and displayed at the same, time making it possible to accurately grasp the flow of a conversation.
- If there are any mistakes in the conversion of speech into text, they can be corrected on the PC.
- Text is transmitted in real time to all PCs connected to a given wireless LAN router environment. The software can also be used on tablet computers.
By continuing to develop new features for this software, Fujitsu Limited and Fujitsu Social Science Laboratory Limited plan to broaden its applications to include such features as storage of conversation logs and support for creating meeting notes. In addition, the companies will continue to work on resolving communications issues for people with hearing disabilities, extending the visualization of speech from everyday topics to a variety of other themes, such as highly specialized content and emergency conditions.
Fujitsu has upgraded its Biometrics-as-a-Service with the latest Catalog Manager Marketplace and ImageWare's GoVerifyID.
