Speechly

Speechly is a Helsinki-based developer of a voice interface API for web and mobile applications.

Speechly is a developer of a voice command software designed to translate spoken words into actionable tasks. The company's software utilizes audio processing, speech recognition, natural language processing, and voice activity detection for command recognition. The API developed by Speechly is a streaming, spoken language understanding API that works to understand complex tasks with a multimodal interface available across platforms for use of voice in e-commerce, VR, gaming, digital health apps, and professional work.

Solutions

Speechly's API is intended to help power other companies design and develop voice powered applications.

Design

The API is designed to help companies build natural voice experiences with visual feedback. The API is designed to make using voice in search a more natural experience, with a push-to-talk feature to make it clearer when users talk and when they are done without introducing latency. Speechly's API also works to support user correction, to allow a more natural way of speaking, and recover from possible search errors.

Develop

Speechly also works to help developers focus more on integrating the API and its use cases into the product, rather than on building a voice-based search functionality into their applications. As well, the company offers multiple tools based on the intended integration to help developers integrate Speechly into their application.

The company's API has been developed to return user intent along with a transcript, to be powerful and easy-to-use, to offer a consistent model available for all platforms, and to demonstrate low-latency for a faster and easier user experience.

Integrations

Speechly works to integrate with all major platforms that include touch screens, including web browsers, React, iOS, Android, and React Native.
