Auris Tech are leading the way as one of the world’s first ASR engines (automated speech recognition) for children’s speech.
Basically, their engine can recognise children’s speech when they read out loud with a very high percentage of accuracy (91%+) and that means they can help power excellent apps like Fonetti which shows children whether they’re pronouncing the words correctly. Jobs at Auris include developers for their apps.
One of their key collabs is with the University of Edinburgh School of Informatics, and they’re keen to hear from people about future collabs.
Their work with the Fonetti app is directly improving the skills of young children and is ideal for remote learning.
Children’s book author and sports broadcaster Clare Balding is a fan: “Fonetti is such a simple concept and a brilliant use of technology to support children, make them feel more confident reading and allow parents to monitor their progress.”
