ProfileKit

Administer Speaker Profiles for Accurate Recognition

Manage speaker profiles for optimal speech recognition with ProfileKit 5

Maximise speech recognition accuracy by ensuring end users have completed training sessions with the recognizer. Speaker training—even for command and grammar-based recognition—is essential for accuracy.

A recognition profile is a collection of information used by a speech recognition engine to increase its recognition accuracy for a specific individual's voice and environment.

A speech recognition engine saves training and background noise information to use in recognizing speech. Some speech recognition engines, such as Microsoft's Recognizer, capture and save information over time to adapt the profile for optimum speech recognition accuracy.

What is Profile Management?

Profile management enables you to:

  • create and delete speech recognition profiles,
  • train speech recognition profiles, and
  • backup and restore speech recognition profiles.

Applications benefits include:

  • enhanced speech recognition accuracy,
  • added flexibility to adapt to different acoustical environments, and
  • expanded reliability to recover from system errors.

What is ProfileKit?

Chant ProfileKit handles the complexities of managing profiles and persisting them in files for backup and recovery.

It simplifies the process of managing profiles for Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking, Microsoft SAPI 5, Microsoft Speech Platform, and Nuance VoCon recognizers. You can backup and restore, activate, create, delete, and train profiles as needed within your application to adapt to the end user.

ProfileKit includes C++, C++Builder, Delphi, Java, .NET Framework, and Silverlight class library formats to support all your programming languages and sample projects for popular IDEs—such as the latest Visual Studio from Microsoft and RAD Studio from Embarcadero.

The class libraries can be integrated with 32-bit and 64-bit applications.
