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: Nuclear Pores Captured on Film

Using an ultra fast-scanning atomic force microscope, a team of researchers from the University of Basel has filmed “living” nuclear pore complexes at work for the first time. Nuclear pores are molecular machines that control the traffic entering or exiting the cell nucleus. In their article published in Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers explain how the passage of unwanted molecules is prevented by rapidly moving molecular “tentacles” inside the pore.

Using high-speed AFM, Roderick Lim, Argovia Professor at the Biozentrum and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute of the University of Basel, has not only directly...

Im Focus: 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

In the microscopic world, where the modern miniaturized machines at the new frontiers of technology operate, as long as we are in the presence of two...

Im Focus: Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead...

Im Focus: ORNL researchers discover new state of water molecule

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states.

In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling state of...
