The task was to adapt Techmo Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) to international market by making English version. Data were collected, processed and used for retraining of models which previously were used for Polish. ASR is a technology that has been evolving for several decades. Techmo ASR is a system developed by the Techmo for automatic recognition of Polish speech. It is used as a voice interface for applications or call steering. It can be used as an acoustic search engine or for creating voice notes, as well as for reporting energy failures. It is based on the latest achievements in technology (deep learning) to achieve low resources and low energy computing.
TTX aimed in developing new version for English markets which will be distributed together with a partner. English speaking countries are by far the largest market for ASR solutions. It is also a necessary step for a Techmo to have English version to speed up export and negotiations with investors.
