Ehrhardt Partner Group (EPG) has released the newest version of the Lydia Voice 9, which offers an additional feature: the recognition of multiple languages in real time and in parallel.
The new function works through multithreading, which enables voice recognition to be processed in parallel on numerous processor cores. The way in which computing power is distributed across multiple processor cores, EPG claims, ensures even greater voice recognition as well as energy savings.
“Lydia Voice now recognises several languages at the same time,” said Tim Just, CEO of voice solutions at EPG.
“While the solutions of other providers require users to undergo complex voice training, Lydia Voice has not required any voice training at all for a number of years now. And now our solution is immediately able to recognise several languages at the same time. This means that the onboarding process is even quicker for non-native speakers and they can be deployed more flexibly.
“Lydia Voice 9 enables modern hardware platforms to exploit their full potential and achieve maximum computing power thanks to the seamless interaction between software and hardware – and all this with optimised energy management.”
Increased voice recognition capability offers a range of benefits, according to EPG. The company explains that this means order pickers who have not yet mastered the local language have the option of operating in their native language.
The removal of language barriers supports increased productivity and faster deployment of various voice-led processes, the company says.
EPG has also developed hardware for the voice recognition system, the new Voxter Vantage VT5 mobile voice computer.
The company explains that the hardware comes with high-performance components, a voice-optimised enterprise operating system Android Industrial+ and guarantees additional benefits in terms of voice recognition performance, data security and WiFi performance. The overall package offers three times faster voice recognition than previous versions, it reports.
The new LYDIA Voice 9 language portfolio has also been expanded to include more than 50 directly available languages.
