Nuance joins Veritone's growing set of partners that includes providers of cognitive engines such as sentiment extraction, tonal analysis, facial and object recognition, and more. The addition of NTE will enhance the efficiency and overall capabilities of Veritone's cognitive platform by adding highly accurate transcription.
Nuance's transcription technology, deployed within Veritone's large-scale cloud environment and combined with Veritone's specialized training data sets, is expected to enhance Veritone's capabilities for deeper learning and improve the overall performance and accuracy of the CMP engines. NTE will now be accessible to Veritone's client base for use with its ecosystem of millions of hours of audio and video content.
With support for 15 languages and 30 dialects, Nuance's speech recognition is trained to recognize specific industry and regional terms, proper nouns, and brand names.

"Veritone is at the forefront of bringing market-driven solutions to key verticals, accelerating the extensibility and democratization of media. Through this partnership, we will be able to unlock new capabilities and broaden the reach of our technology across Veritone's rapidly growing customer base."
