Newswise: Speech Analytics Evaluation for OpenSAT19

Article ID: 716279

Speech Analytics Evaluation for OpenSAT19

Homeland Security's Science And Technology Directorate

Effective speech analytic technologies and voice-based communications services are critical for public safety responders, especially when their hands are preoccupied during an active response or when background noises reach levels that can render most digital speech assistants inoperable. In order to be effective, these technologies and services should be hands-free and be able to handle background noises and isolate important voices.
