Speech technology: advantages of automatic transcription

04.02.2014
At the CCW trade fair in Berlin, EML European Media Laboratory will be presenting products which provide automatic transformation of incoming phone calls and voicemails into written text. – “EML Voicemail2Text Service” for VoIP systems and as Android App – data protection: speech technology “Made in Germany”

The Heidelberg-based IT enterprise EML European Media Laboratory GmbH will be represented at this year’s CCW trade fair (former CallCenterWorld) in Berlin from 18 February to 20 February 2014 with a stand of its own (Hall 4, Stand H13). EML offers speech technology solutions to enterprises for their customer contacts over the phone. At CCW, the speech technologists will be presenting two products:

The “EML Transcription Server” automatically transforms incoming phone calls into machine-searchable text and is speaker-independent. The “EML Speech Mining Server” classifies calls according to categories, patterns and conversational features. It scans the calls for new terms and links them with each other.

The automatic transcription allows an efficient, extended search for particular keywords. In conventional systems, every new keyword search involves reprocessing and rescanning all incoming calls that have been recorded. “Advanced Keyword Spotting finds the keywords in recognized texts as quickly as a search engine,” says Dr. Siegfried Kunzmann, EML’s head of R&D. “These keywords can also be interrelated. And the new phonetic search function means we can find keywords not yet registered in the speech recognition system, for example unusual proper names.”

Furthermore, contact center operators can adapt the speech recognition to their own application domains. “Speech recognition and domain adaptation capabilities will be available to enterprises on their own premises. This safeguards data protection,” states Dr. Kunzmann. “This is an advantage of speech technology made in Germany.”

At CCW, EML’s speech technology experts will also demonstrate a new service and the corresponding Android app for the automatic transcription of voicemails. With the EML Voicemail2Text Service, users of VoIP routers such as Fritz!Box, can receive an automatic transcription of incoming voicemails on their smartphones. 1&1 users can also access this service. The Android app is available free of charge in the Google Play Store.

EML European Media Laboratory:
EML European Media Laboratory GmbH was established as a private IT enterprise by Klaus Tschira, a co-founder of SAP. The EML develops software and technologies in automatic speech processing. The main focus is on the automatic conversion of speech into text (transcription), which is used in telephony (speech analytics, voicemail) and mobile applications (voice texting, voice search).

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
