Recapp’s speech recognition technology in the Swisscom TV Box
April 27 2016
Two start-ups from Valais, Keylemon and recapp, contributed to the development of the most recent Swisscom TV Box that allows speech recognition of Swiss German dialects for the first time.
The box comes with a remote control that has an integrated microphone. Thanks to speech recognition, the content search is greatly simplified. Use your voice instead of painfully enter characters with the remote buttons. The speech search covers movie and program titles, names of actors and sports clubs as well as other key terms.
Our software allows you to record your conversations with any laptop and microphone.
