Chant Application Helpers Offer High-Value Coding Solution

New components accelerate development with ready-to-use shortcuts

Los Angeles, California, January 19, 2021—Chant Inc., a leading independent software vendor of speech technology tools, today announced Audio Search that enables applications to find words, phrases, and subphrases in audio recordings and Talk&Listen for interacting with users for hands-free operation.

Now developers have the ability to quickly and easily integrate ready-to-use application capabilities with a single-line of code. Audio Search and Talk&Listen provide high-value capabilities that leverage Acapela, CereProc, Cepstral, Microsoft, and Nuance speech technologies.

Some applications do not require access to the extensive features offered by speech technology SDKs and Chant product class libraries. Chant Application Helpers offer a way to leverage specific capabilities without having to master the low-level details of SDKs or implement complex application architectures. Powerful new capabilities can be integrated in many cases with only one new line of code.

"Chant Application Helpers are a win-win for managers and developers," said John Earle, president and founder of Chant Inc. "Managers have a low-cost solution for Developers who can integrate complex capabilities with as little as a single line of code and don't have to worry about a lot of issues."

With Audio Search, the search terms can be a simple string or Regular Expression pattern. Audio Search classes libraries are available for C++, C++Builder, Delphi, Java, C#, and VB .NET Windows applications.

With Talk&Listen, applications synthesize and recognize speech without having to worry about events, properties, and callback handlers. Talk&Listen classes libraries are available for C++, C++Builder, Delphi, Java, C#, and VB .NET Windows applications.
