Upgraded Sensory Tech Can Identify Voices, Respond to Custom Wake Up Words

“Sensory says TrulyHandsfree is the most widely deployed speech recognition system in the world and is now featured on over two billion devices.”

Sensory Inc. has upgraded the AI of its TrulyHandsfree voice activation technology.

Upgraded Sensory Tech Can Identify Voices, Respond to Custom Wake Up WordsDesigned primarily to let users ‘wake up’ their devices, it has been integrated into headsets and even into smartglasses. Now, Sensory says the latest version, TrulyHandsfree 5.0, brings a five-fold reduction in false activations, and has enhanced background noise reduction. It also also lets users activate devices even while music or other sounds are playing, and offers device makers power efficiency allowing the system to operate on less than 1mA of energy.

TrulyHandsfree also goes beyond speech recognition by enabling user verification based on voice biometrics, with users able to set up voice activation through a keyword or phrase of their choosing. Even with a custom trigger word, the system is designed to respond only to a given registered voice.

Sensory says TrulyHandsfree is the most widely deployed speech recognition system in the world and is now featured on over two billion devices. Given its latest enhancements and the growing interest in voice interaction as a user interface, its reach could grow much further going forward.
