Samsung selects Sensory as Key Source for Embedded Speech Technologies

Santa Clara, CA – September 5, 2014 …Sensory Speech Recognition Deployed by Samsung Across a Wide Range of Phones, Wearables, and Cameras.

Sensory Inc., the industry leader in speech and vision technologies for consumer products, is pleased to announce that its pioneering TrulyHandsfree™ voice technology is deployed across an array of Samsung’s iconic Galaxy products including smartphones, tablets, cameras, and wearables. TrulyHandsfree™ is the leading always-on, always-listening voice control solution that just works. It enables users to activate and access their phone with an ultra-low power voice trigger. The TrulyHandsfree™ voice control can also enable extremely high accuracy command sets that do not require close talking mics, quiet rooms, or even saying things exactly right. Samsung uses these features to answer calls, use the camera, or perform other functions where talking is easier and more convenient than touching the device. Samsung also uses TrulyHandsfre™ as the voice trigger for S-Voice.The technology is robust enough to work in noisy environments, has a low risk of false starts (won’t make a call when you don’t want it to) and has minimal impact on battery life, making it the ideal voice control solution for mobile and wearable devices. Since its inception, TrulyHandsfree™ trigger technology has become the most widely adopted keyword spotting technology in the speech industry.

Among the Samsung devices implementing the TrulyHandsfree™ technology is the flagship Galaxy S line of phones. Sensory was first introduced in Galaxy S2 and has been a key part of GS3, GS4, and now GS5.

Outside of smart phones, other Samsung products incorporating TrulyHandsfree™ include the Galaxy Note 1, 2, 3, and 4 devices and the Galaxy Gear wearables line including Gear 1, Gear 2, and Gear S.

Sensory is also in cameras and tablets which deploy S-Voice.

“Samsung continues to be a standard bearer and innovator in an array of dazzling and savvy technology devices which meet the needs of mass consumers,” noted Sensory’s CEO Todd Mozer. “We are very pleased that they have selected Sensory for all their embedded speech needs.”

“Sensory has emerged as the clear leader in low-power high-accuracy speech recognition, and the widespread adoption across Samsung products is a testament to their success,” said William Meisel, President of TMA Associates, which provides insights and consulting support to companies that want to incorporate speech technologies into their products or services.
