TrulyHandsfree and SDK from Sensory: Better Recognition for Voice Activation

Nowadays people want everything to be at the fastest speed possible. We seem to crave instant gratification, especially when it pertains to the technological devices we use.

Sensory Inc, a California company, which creates a safer and superior UX through vision and voice technologies, has heard the call and has introduced its TrulyHandsfree SDK technology. This technology simplifies the development of speech recognition applications, which greatly reduces the amount of time necessary to implement a speech-controlled user experience.

"Integrating always-on, always-listening speech triggers and speech command functionality into the user experience of software and apps used to require a deep understanding of how speech technologies work,” said Jacques de Villiers, Technology Deployment Engineer, Sensory. “With Sensory’s latest TrulyHandsfree SDK, we’ve made it simple for developers to integrate these must-have UX technologies into their products.”

The TrulyHandsfree SDK improves the fixed triggers, user enrolled triggers and commands plus phrase-spotting technology that makes TrulyHandsfree highly robust to noise. The speech trigger and commands can be added to an application with less than 20 lines of code. Also the tasks’ details are managed with streamlined modular speech recognition functions. Another improvement is that documentation for TrulyHandsfree 5.0 is easier to digest. All speech recognition models and task configurations are passed as one file, further simplify the API. It is available JAVA API for Android now with seamless integration with Android Studio and with JNI programming needed.

“We’ve worked closely with our partners to understand what they wanted and completely redesigned our SDK to incorporate dataflow and inversion-of-control techniques to greatly reduce the overhead and complexity of designing TrulyHandsfree technology into applications,” said de Villiers.

Sensory Inc.’s newly redesigned TrulyHandsfree product will be a lasting trend in the technology world with over a billion products utilizing TrulyHandsfree that have been shipped over the past several years from the world’s largest CE manufacturers.
