Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree™ Voice Control technology has revolutionized the speech technology industry by removing the need to hit buttons to activate speech recognition. This technology is getting rave editorial and customer reviews for enabling a safer and more convenient user experience with an extremely noise robust and accurate solution that responds quickly and at ultra-low power consumption. Variations include fixed phrase triggers and command sets, user defined triggers, predefined fixed phrase voice passwords, user defined passwords, and small vocabulary speech recognition command sets. TrulyHandsfree runs on more platforms including DSPs, microcontrollers, sensor hubs, smart mics, and operating systems than any other speech recognition company in the world. Almost as many platforms as all other speech companies combined!! TrulyHandsfree is perfect for low power embedded applications for wake up word, wearables, and Bluetooth™ devices.
Sensory’s TrulyNatural™ technology is a state-of-the-art deep neural net speech engine implementing a custom embedded architecture allowing developers to incorporate scalable sizes and capabilities ranging from small footprint small vocabulary engines to large vocabulary continuous speech recognition systems. TrulyNatural is perfect for automotive, IoT, mobile, and other home electronic applications requiring a more natural language and flexible voice input than traditional grammar based approaches.
TrulySecure™ combines Sensory’s award winning speaker verification with face authentication to enable a fast, convenient and accurate approach to biometric authentication. Sensory’s Applock in the GooglePlay store is the highest rated biometric application, has had over 100,000 downloads and produces several terabytes of real world usable data every month. TrulySecure is now used by some of the biggest banks and largest mobile providers in the world.
