Nuance – We Want To Talk To You
April 1, 2012 §
Nuance – what a great name for a company. We’ve been reading about you for years, and in the news, this article now:
We encourage these projects and especially if they also lead to much more QUALITY speech-to-text systems – full VERBATIM and also REAL TIME – for so many millions of us who are deaf, deafened, have hearing loss, or use captioning for everyday communications for many other good reasons.
Being able to train a system to one’s own voice, and then talk to so many different machines may be fun, useful too!
At the same time, we urgently need accurate speech to text systems – we need improvements as soon as your company, Google, and others can provide.
We doubt that these systems will replace human professional caption providers anytime soon, and yet…
Speaking for one person only here – half of me wants you to try a whole lot harder. And the other half of me knows how important real time professionals are for so many of us now, in so many everyday situations, and will remain vital also. Captioning is our language too – we want it universally, so there should be room for all professionals and all systems too.
Nuance – tell us how we can help. We hope to talk with you Nuance, in Burlington, MA, USA one day soon. We would like to learn a lot more, and tell you about the CCAC also.
