Personal Digital Assistant Market - Use Interface Insights
Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is the technology which helps individuals to talk to an electronic device such as phone and computer interface in a way which resembles a normal conversation. The most advanced ASR technology has recently been developed, called, Natural Language Processing (NLP). This technology is the closest to having a natural conversation between a human being and a computer.
Smart phone interface such as Siri in iPhones and other such programs have been developing at an escalating rate. These programs still have a lot to develop before reaching their apex, yet they have captured a huge market and are expecting to grow in the forecast period.
Human Tuning and Active Learning are two types of ASR systems which are used for human to computer conversation. Human tuning is used to update the pre-programmed vocabulary of the computer to make the conversation smoother. Active learning involves autonomous learning, adopting and retaining new words.
Text-based assistance is simply the process of sending a message to the computer program which will then be answered or addressed to get quick results. It is not in a separate application, hence saves time on downloading and researching. It knows your choices better hence giving you suggestions on hotel booking, choice of clothes, and many more such activities.
Text to speech (TTS) is another such interface which reads digital speech aloud with its computer generated voice. It can read out documents such as word and pages, including web pages. Optical Character Recognition is a part of TTS which enables the device to read out words from images. With further development in the technology, the market for TTS is expected to grow in the forecast period.
