TEXT IT!

Business Spotlight - - TECHNOLOGY -

Ac­cu­rately tran­scrib­ing voice to text de­pends on ac­cu­rately iden­ti­fy­ing con­text. For ex­am­ple, we pro­nounce “blue” and “blew” ex­actly the same way, but al­go­rithms need to dif­fer­en­ti­ate these words based on their us­age within a sen­tence. Sil­i­con Val­ley start-up Aisense says it can do this with its Otter Voice Notes app, a solution for tran­scrib­ing con­ver­sa­tions be­tween peo­ple. Otter sep­a­rates and iden­ti­fies speak­ers, and al­lows users to store and search voice con­ver­sa­tions. Otter is avail­able through the App Store and Google Play with a free plan that in­cludes up to 600 min­utes of tran­scrip­tion a month. On­line meet­ings and other busi­ness sit­u­a­tions are all priced on a case-by­case ba­sis. www.aisense.com
