Vocapia Logo Leading edge speech processing technology

Orsay - December 4, 2012

Vocapia Research announces the availability of a speech-text alignment functionality on its web service. Speech-text alignment is the process of synchronizing a speech signal with a speech transcript or a closely related text, providing timecodes for words and sentences. There are many uses of this technology, including audio books, language learning, and video subtitling.

The speech-text alignment process assigns timecodes to each word and each punctuation mark in the audio transcript and provides confidence scores to identify areas where the alignment may not be perfect in particular when the transcript differs from what has really been said.

This new functionnality is offered on Vocapia web service via a simple and efficient REST API as for Vocapia speech-to-text technology.
