The new voice control tool was designed to be implemented by developers of apps, kid's wearables, children's toys, and education technologies. These developers can utilize the new children-specific technology to create applications that deliver a high level of speech recognition accuracy. In fact, the technology has already been shown to reduce a child's word error by 33 percent when compared to traditional adult speech recognition models.
Sensory is already well-known within the speech industry, even supplying edge speech recognition for Zoom's newest applications. With this latest development, however, the company pivoted to building solutions for a relatively untapped market. "We challenged the team to create a private and accurate recognizer for kid’s speech and they delivered. This opens up new and fun voice-enabled products for kids of all ages,” said the CEO at Sensory, said Todd Mozer.
