Company Summary

NovoSpeech believes that speech should be an integral part of natural user interfaces. After analyzing the performance bottlenecks inherent to state-of-the-art automatic speech recognition (ASR) solutions, we have developed new algorithms, improved existing ones and “imported” algorithms from other disciplines. The result: A proprietary, extremely noise-robust, speaker-independent ASR engine with extraordinary recognition accuracy rates.
