Issue Date: 2016-04-14

VoiceBox Technologies, a global provider of contextual voice and natural language understanding (NLU) technologies for automotive, mobile and IoT products, has announced the availability of the company's new Embedded Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) product for automotive applications. Integrated with the company's award-winning NLU technology, VoiceBox's Embedded ASR now offers auto makers a single solution for powering the next generation of in-car voice systems.

Designed to convert speech into text, which is then processed through NLU, VoiceBox's Embedded ASR supports more than 20 languages. The company's Embedded ASR solution is the first of its kind to offer Deep Neural Networks (DNN) which enable the processing of complex, contextual conversations. It is also the only ASR technology to include parallel hybrid processing with machine learning. This allows user queries to be simultaneously processed in both embedded and cloud systems to optimize the delivery of results.

VoiceBox's Embedded ASR technology is available now for use in automotive information and entertainment units and is also used in VoiceBox mobile and IoT solutions.
