Sensory Announces a TrulyHandsfree™ User Experience between Bluetooth™ Accessories and Connected Devices

Santa Clara, CA – August 27th, 2013 …No touch experience connects to mobile phones, PC’s, and tablets.

Sensory, Inc., a leader in speech technologies for consumer electronics, announced today the availability of Sensory’s industry leading TrulyHandsfree™ Voice Control 3.0 solution for Bluetooth devices. When coupled with TrulyHandsfree™ Voice Control 3.0 on smartphones or computers, this new release enables an integrated and seamless voice user experience when moving from a Bluetooth device interface to a handset or computer interface.

Earlier this year Sensory introduced exciting new features in version 3.0 of TrulyHandsfree™ Voice Control, including

  • Trigger to Search Capability
  • Ultra-Low Power Deeply Embedded Implementations
  • User Defined Triggers and Passphrases
  • Embedded Speaker Verification and Identification Targeting Small Footprint Clients

Sensory has now implemented Sensory’s TrulyHandsfree™ technology in the BlueGenie™ solution for Bluetooth products, including extending the same compelling “always listening” experience the market is now embracing in smartphone releases from major vendors. Further, the computer or handset and Bluetooth product can share the enrolled user-defined wakeup trigger, as well as the seamless handoff of following speech for computer or handset commands, or cloud-based search. This gives the user one unified speech recognition experience, whether using the handset/computer or a Bluetooth headset or HFK. The user is no longer required to have unique interface setups for every device.

For example, the user could say “Hello Blue Genie check battery” to hear the battery level of the headset, or “Hello Blue Genie music player” to control a voice-enabled music player, or “Hello Blue Genie what time is it in Tokyo?” to check the time in Japan. The actions are performed using the appropriate resources in the headset, handset or cloud for the request issued in a transparent and responsive manner leading to a simple, yet rich user experience.

“Sensory’s fully integrated user experience is the ultimate expression of a TrulyHandsfree™ Voice User Interface. It’s what users intuitively expect from their mobile and desktop computing products”, said Bill Teasley, Sensory’s Vice President of Engineering. “This seamless experience sets the standard for wearable computing, and avoids the need for pausing or waiting to complete commands”
