Sensory Launches VoiceHub 2.0
Sensory, a provider of artificial intelligence-based speech recognition technologies, today launched VoiceHub 2.0, a new version of its web portal that integrates generative AI to help developers create custom voice user interfaces capable of understanding spoken commands and natural language.
"Speech recognition is important in many applications, but not all needs are the same. Our scalable VoiceHub voice UI development tools were created to provide developers a one-stop-shop for applications ranging from ultra-small-footprint embedded wake words and command models to full-featured NLU voice UIs," said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory, in a statement. "With VoiceHub 2.0, we're providing an even more powerful, flexible, and intuitive tool that harnesses the power of generative AI to make short work of creating high-performance speech recognition models."
The new updates include improvements to the user interface, more platform integrations, the addition of languages and regional dialects, and access to the latest versions of TrulyHandsfree and TrulyNatural.
VoiceHub 2.0 integrates ChatGPT to enable a new Task Explorer feature for the creation of large vocabulary or natural language (TrulyNatural-based) voice UIs. By simply entering the domain type of the project, Task Explorer's generative AI provides a variety of intents or commands and relevant slots or categories for the project type via an interactive mapping tool or within the language model builder. Users would simply select all options that would be relevant to their capabilities and features. Based on domain or product category, VoiceHub’s new Task Explorer feature can also generate a list of suggested phrases for the language model.
VoiceHub 2.0 now supports 25 languages and regional dialects, including Arabic, German, English (Australian, Indian, U.K., U.S.), Spanish, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, and Mandarin Chinese.
VoiceHub 2.0 also received a refreshed portal UI layout, and new features that allow for sharing and importing of projects in drag-and-drop format. The VoiceHub mobile app for iOS and Android has also been updated to maintain compatibility.
Sensory also released TrulyHandsfree Micro 7.1.0, updated with speed improvements, and support for more hardware platforms, including ARM Cortex-M4, Silicon Labs Cortex-M33/M, Ambiq Apollo 4, Cadence Hifi5, Qualcomm, and Xmos xcore.ai. TrulyHandsfree supports Android, iOS, Linux, and Windows operating systems.
And the latest version of TrulyNatural, 6.21.0 features a background model for U.S. English that improves out-of-vocabulary rejection, requires less RAM for recognizers on small, embedded platforms, and adds Voice Activity Detectors for the SNSR-lite Large Vocabulary Continuous Speech Recognizer. Additionally, VoiceHub's TrulyNatural tools will include statistical language models for greater flexibility and natural language accuracy.
