Integrate Speech Technology for Hands-free Operation

Chant SpeechKit

You really don't have to sit in front of a computer with a mouse and keyboard to use information technology. Your applications can be enhanced to speak and listen to you from where ever you need them to.

Speech recognition is the process of converting an acoustic signal (i.e. audio data), captured by a microphone or a telephone, to a set of words. These words can be used for controlling computer functions, data entry, and application processing.

Speech synthesis is the process of converting words to phonetic and prosodic symbols and generating synthetic speech audio data. Synthesized speech can be used for answering questions, event notification, and reading documents aloud.

What is Speech Management?

Speech management enables you to:

  • control application functions by speaking rather than having to use a mouse or keyboard,
  • capture data by speaking rather than typing, and
  • prompt and confirm data capture with spoken or audio acknowledgement.

Applications benefits include:

  • enhanced speed and accuracy of data capture,
  • added flexibility of running applications in a variety of environments, and
  • expanded operating scenarios for hands-free computing.

What is SpeechKit?

Chant SpeechKit handles the complexities of speech recognition and speech synthesis to minimize the programming necessary to develop software that speaks and listens.

It simplifies the process of managing Microsoft SAPI 5, Microsoft Speech Platform, Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking, and Nuance Vocon 3200 recognizers, and managing Acapela, Cepstral, CereProc CereVoice, Microsoft SAPI 5, Microsoft Speech Platform, and Nuance Vocalizer synthesizers.

SpeechKit includes C++, C++Builder, Delphi, Java, .NET Framework, and Silverlight class libraries to support all your programming languages and sample projects for popular IDEs—such as the latest Visual Studio 2013 from Microsoft.

The class libraries can be integrated with 32-bit, 64-bit, and embedded applications.
