More About smARTspeak NG
First to successfully combine all Voice Dialing and Control functions for speaker independent and speaker dependent systems, smARTspeak NG’s comprehensive voice recognition algorithm was designed as an all-in-one bundle for operation in the tight processing power environment of today’s mass-market cellular handsets.
The bundle's unique technology means that instead of having to choose between speaker dependent or independent features, OEMs can now simply deploy the one embedded software on all new cellular handsets, and customize whichever functions are required.
Combining a decade of ART’s award-winning technologies, smARTspeak NG‘s leading-edge developments offer voice-enabled features such as name dialing, continuous digit dialing, menu navigation and device control. It also includes ART’s latest innovation: a Speaker Independent Digit Dialing function with adaptation possibility for heavily accented International English - or any other language spoken with dialect. This simple 30-second adaptation allows further personalization according to the needs of each user.
