An Android App, VoiceGo, was chosen as the best Lifestyle App by Google Play in the first half of 2014. VoiceGo provides users a convenient gateway of querying real-time information such as stock quotes, weather and movies etc. An App with more than 800 thousand monthly active users and growing 180% annually is quite a remarkable feat for an App designed with only Taiwan's local users in mind. The incubator of VoiceGo, Cyberon Corporation is a speech technology provider with global speech solution capability.
The speech technologies are already applied in many consumer electronic products. A few years ago, designers were treating speech interfaces as a nice-to-have feature; nowadays, the speech interface is designed as a major, if not the only, human interface parallel to the touch screen.
Cyberon's Sales Manager Wilson Chen said, "having devoted more than 15 years in advanced speech technologies behind the scene, Cyberon has established solid technological foundation and a line of on-the-shelf speech solutions easily adaptable to a variety of platforms. Moreover, with all speech technologies developed in-house, Cyberon solutions are highly flexible and could be scalably deployed on a 16bit microcontroller running robotic voice commands as well as on a full-blown server running as a complex Intelligent Speech Assistant."
The maturing of speech and natural language technology has changed the user expectations of the ease of interacting with increasing number of devices. In addition to the Smartphone, Cyberon is expanding its solutions and its technology prowess on a variety of applications, such as vehicles, smart toys, smart home and wearable devices.
Currently, Cyberon is providing 32 international language support on CSpotter, an embedded voice recognition product, and CReader, Cyberon's Text To Speech solution. While people are talking about the dawn of artificial intelligence and robotic era, looks like Cyberon is destined to play a crucial part in it.
