Voiceitt’s Israel-based team has developed automatic speech recognition (ASR) technology designed to recognize non-standard speech patterns, enabling people with mild to very severe speech impairments to access mainstream voice-activated smart assistants (e.g. Siri, Google Home, Amazon Echo, etc.), and to communicate and be understood by voice.
The first version of Voiceitt’s AI-driven technology (now in Beta) is language-independent with a limited vocabulary. It does not require Wi-Fi during use (on-device recognition). Machine learning mechanisms enable the system to adapt as the person uses it. While there is an initial short calibration phase for users, operating the system does not require technical expertise.
The company is in the advanced stages of development and is preparing to launch two key technology offerings: (1) A hands-free mobile application that enables face-to-face verbal communication between individuals and (2) Software integration with existing operating systems, smart assistants, and smart homes, enabling accessibility to mainstream voice-driven technologies for aging adults and individuals with disabilities, thereby enhancing independence and quality of life.
