March 8, 2017
AppTek’s Streaming API service allows for live ASR transcription
AppTek today announces the official launch of its streaming audio API service. Available for companies needing live transcription of audio streams, the API allows for instant, highly accurate Automated Speech Recognition (ASR) transcription.
“AppTek has been providing live and offline transcription for several years,” stated Adam Sutherland, AppTek CEO. “Our Live Closed Captioning Appliance provides live transcription to newsrooms and other live venues globally, and our Media Workbench and RESTful API service deliver offline processing for multiple media and call center customers. Expanding to an instant, cloud-based API offering expands the companies and industries with whom we can partner.”
Jintao Jiang, AppTek’s Chief Scientist, worked with the technical and scientific team to adapt AppTek’s proprietary ASR technology to the live environment. “Tailored for the mobile environment – our English, Spanish and Arabic API results are excellent. With up to 92%+ accuracy and less than 1 second response time, we are very happy with this offering, and are looking to expand the live API to the 11 other languages our ASR supports,” commented Jiang. “We are also preparing to rollout SprintPy which provides a flexible Python interface to the core ASR engine. This allows users to easily create and experiment with custom workflows.”
