Knowledge Adventure Selects Fonix VoiceIn Speech Interface
SALT LAKE CITY - Knowledge Adventure® will integrate Fonix VoiceIn for the PC into upcoming products aimed at providing innovative and entertaining learning opportunities for children. VoiceIn is Fonix's speech interface software for Xbox®, PlayStation®2, PC and Mac videogame developers.
"Knowledge Adventure is pleased to be partnering with Fonix to release the first product in our Voice Activated Learning series," says Leslie House, Knowledge Adventure senior vice president of product development. "VAL, or Voice Activated Learning, uses speech recognition to create an instructional base that responds to a child's voice input. Fonix's unique ability to recognize children's voices in particular was the perfect compliment to this innovative teaching method," says House. "In addition, Fonix worked with us, side by side, throughout our entire development process to ensure that the technology was seamless, providing an accurate experience every time."
Fonix has optimized Knowledge Adventure®'s neural network-based technology for children's voices. Knowledge Adventure® will release the company's first Voice Activated Learning (VAL) product for children this summer.
