Integrated Speech Recognition Reduces Cost and Improves User Experience


Speech interaction over the Internet or with devices has taken off with the capabilities of Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Google in phones, smart speakers, automobiles and more. For many interactions, speech is more efficient than other I/O methods. And in the context of phone calls, particularly for mobile users, it’s safer. The Radisys MediaEngine, a virtual media server platform, combines the ability to process speech ranging from a small vocabulary of key words and commands to natural language interaction in the context of voice and video calls. It offers a much more cost-effective alternative to traditional speech recognition approaches because keyword detection is an integrated feature, lowering the cost and complexity of deploying speech features and improving the performance of applications through reduced latency in response. Radisys high scale speech decoding capabilities also reduces the footprint of speech services.

The Radisys MediaEngine creates new opportunities for service providers by enabling cost effective new innovative applications including speech menu navigation, enhanced customer service, advertising, information retrieval and more based on “in-call” keyword detection and media analytics.
