About Chant SpeechKit

Integrate Speech Technology for hands-free operation.

Speech recognition can be used for controlling computer functions, data entry, and application processing. Speech synthesis can be used for answering questions, event notification, and reading documents aloud. Chant SpeechKit handles the complexities of speech recognition and speech synthesis to minimize the programming necessary to develop software that speaks and listens. It simplifies the process of managing Microsoft SAPI 5, Microsoft Speech Platform, Nuance Dragon NaturallySpeaking and Nuance Vocon 3200 recognizers and managing Acapela, Cepstral, CereProc CereVoice, Microsoft SAPI 5, Microsoft Speech Platform, and Nuance Vocalizer synthesizers.

Features of Chant SpeechKit

A SpeechKit application can:

  • Control application functions by speaking rather than having to use a mouse or keyboard.
  • Prompt users for applicable data capture.
  • Capture data by speaking rather than typing.
  • Confirm data capture with spoken or audio acknowledgement.
  • Transcribe audio buffers, files, and streams to text.
  • Synthesize speech to audio buffers, files, and streams.

Within Chant Developer Workbench IDE, you can:

  • Enumerate audio devices and speech engines for selection and testing of audio-, recognizer-, and synthesizer-specific features.
  • Trace audio, recognition, and synthesis events.
  • Support grammar activation and testing (requires GrammarKit).
  • Support TTS markup playback (requires VoiceMarkupKit).
