Wavelink to Demonstrate Latest Voice Solution at ProMat 2011

New Speech-to-Text Engine in Wavelink Speakeasy Platform Improves Voice Accuracy and Recognition to Accommodate More Challenging Environments

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - March 17, 2011) - Wavelink Corporation ( today announced it will be demonstrating several enhancements to its Speakeasy voice solution at ProMat 2011 in Chicago. The new features in the Speakeasy platform provide greater flexibility and further accuracy to voice recognition while increasing the speed of implementation.

"Our voice technology has been proven to deliver up to 99 percent accuracy and a significant improvement in productivity to warehouse applications such as data entry, picking and processing," said Mikkel Storm, Wavelink senior product manager. "It also improves safety by enabling workers to operate hands-free. With the new speech engine, we can maintain that high level of accuracy even in environments with heavy noise interference."

Speakeasy remains a speaker-independent solution in which any user can pick up any mobile device with the Speakeasy client and utilize the voice features. Now, companies are able to have individual users train the speech-to-text engine to their particular voice and speech patterns. The voice training is saved and managed via Wavelink Avalanche® as a voice profile, so that any user can log in to any device and have it equipped with their voice training profile. In certain environments this option improves the accuracy of the voice recognition and still maintains the user flexibility to operate any mobile device.

The following new features of Speakeasy also help improve productivity and accuracy:

  • User calibration of the speech recognition engine for a particular hardware and environment
  • Real-time speech confidence level viewer lets users diagnose the cause of inaccuracies in recognition
  • Speech status indicator ensures users are speaking when the speech engine is listening
  • Screen Reformatter enables administrators to designate specific fields for speech-to-text and text-to-speech entry
  • User interface can be tailored to specific users or applications.

Wavelink will be demonstrating Wavelink Speakeasy at ProMat 2011 in booth #3479. For more information, please visit
