HEAR ME - Speech Blog  |  Read more January 21, 2015 - An Inside look at Sensory’s Strategic Endeavors


  • Of particular interest is the fact that TrulySecure is an on-device biometric identification system that does not rely on a connection to the cloud. Many users prefer this approach because they do not wish for their biometric data to be replicated and stored outside of their personal devices.

    Max Maxfield, EE Times
  • Speech recognition company Sensory is expanding into the computer vision space with a new smartphone security client that uses both voice and face recognition to lock down your phone.

    Kevin Fitchard, Gigaom
  • TrulySecure works by watching and listening as you repeat a passphrase a couple times. The system tracks the way your lips move and registers the unique attributes of your voice.

    Josh Ong, The Next Web
  • Sensory is continuing to exhibit leadership in handsfree control by allowing a secure multimodal biometric that doesn’t require touching devices to make them work.

    Dan Miller, Opus Research
  • With touchless control, Motorola and Google upped the ante.

    Eric Mack, CNET
  • Touchless the most useful feature [on Moto X].

    David Pogue, NY Times
  • MotoX is a fantastic phone with many great features. My favorite is Touchless Control… Ask it the weather, to call a friend or do a Google search, and it'll just do it, and you never have to touch the phone.

    Pete Pachal, Mashable
  • The defining feature of the Moto X is it’s a virtual ear, always straining to hear its owner’s voice say three magic words that will rouse it to action: "Okay, Google Now."

    Steven Levy, WIRED
  • The phone [Moto X] has all the standard features expected of today’s top smartphone, with a twist: the ability to control the phone by talking to it, without lifting a finger.

    The New York Times
  • The voice-response system, called BlueGenie is surprisingly accurate for such a small device. It's better than the voice system in my Blackberry phone.

    US News and World Report
  • [BlueGenie is] an intuitive voice control system...the finest voice recognition user interface we've seen.

    Good Gear Guide
  • Sensory is trying to revolutionize voice and speech recognition by creating TrulyHandsfree, which looks to evolve our interactions with our smart devices.

    Talk Android
  • It may not seem like much, but that little detail of getting the phone to wake up via a voice command - which Sensory calls ‘TrulyHandsfree’ - is one of the trickiest.

  • With its dual biometric factors, AppLock comes closer to the security-and-convenience ideal than I've ever seen.
