This SDK provides an interface to the DOCOMO Speech Recognition API, enabling speech recognition to be added to Android applications. This particular iOS SDK contains technologies powered by NTT IT language processing, and provides support up to iOS 7.0.6. The SDK offers a recording time of 15 seconds. The API accepts spoken voice within an audio file, and transcribes the language detected into words, structuring the data into an XML format.
Voice is considered the next great user interface, but the challenge is finding a way to cost effectively enable its use. At the APIcon 2014 conference this week, Alex Lebrun, co-founder and CEO of Wit.AI, showed how developers can make use of an API to add voice-recognition capabilities to their applications.
AT&T has announced the launch of a new Speech API which is powered by the AT&T Watson℠ speech engine. The new Speech API allows developers to integrate speech-to-text functionality in mobile applications. The service works with almost any mobile phone and "across all other U.S. wireless carrier services."
