The technology was originally designed to assist the hearing impaired; however, SpeechTrans later realized the wider usage potential. Yan Auerbach, SpeechTrans COO, explained:

“The API technology actually comes from SpeechTrans Ultimate for Hearing Impaired, which allows the hearing impaired to make phone calls without assistance from a human operator….Now, our partners are discovering uses for it that we never considered. The most advanced applications could transform the way we interact with everything from cars, airplanes and industrial equipment to home appliances, vending machines and much more."

HP has been one of the early testers of the SpeechOne API. HP plans to integrate the API with its virtual meeting offering: HP MyRoom. To learn more, visit the SpeechTrans to contact the team.
