UASBA – Unified Application of Speech Recognition to Business Applications
Lately, voice recognition systems have been deeply integrated in consumer products such as smart phones, cars and to some extend also in consumer close service points. These voice recognition solutions seem to be appliance/platform independent and able to navigate thru entire consumer applications. Dialing, maintenance of address books, navigation systems in cars, service applications of airlines, banking, etc. are examples of such applications. This has helped manufacturers of consumer products to position their offerings with a competitive advantage: efficient hand free usage of gadgets by voice with little or no training effort. Very often we have seen consumer markets to use technologies which later on end up as technologies used in professional industrial environments and vice versa.
