#artificialintelligence

Speech recognition is the process of decoding human voices and is a part of machine learning. Organisations are implementing Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology to create documents without touching the keyboard, controlling devices, and other similar tasks. In this article, we list down 10 speech-to-text services which can be used for various applications. Amazon Transcribe is an Automatic Speech recognition (ASR) service which converts speech to text quickly.

As the software continues to improve, the number of business applications of this technology is rapidly increasing.


DeepSpeech 0.6: Mozilla's Speech-to-Text Engine Gets Fast, Lean, and Ubiquitous – Mozilla Hacks - the Web developer blog

#artificialintelligence

The Machine Learning team at Mozilla continues work on DeepSpeech, an automatic speech recognition (ASR) engine which aims to make speech recognition technology and trained models openly available to developers. DeepSpeech is a deep learning-based ASR engine with a simple API. We also provide pre-trained English models. Our latest release, version v0.6, offers the highest quality, most feature-packed model so far. In this overview, we'll show how DeepSpeech can transform your applications by enabling client-side, low-latency, and privacy-preserving speech recognition capabilities.


Boost your productivity by using your voice to take notes

Compiled by Carl Zimmer (zimmer@panix.com) Natural Language Laboratory, School of Computing Science, Simon Fraser University Burnaby, British Columbia Researchers are devising "relaxed grammars" to extract the sense of transcribed speech through a method known as "partial parsing," which deciphers chunks of language rather than breaking down the structure of entire sentences. Their work is being integrated into closed-captioning technology for real-time TV translations. This article has been reproduced in a new format and may be missing content or contain faulty links.
