Unlocking new horizons for business communications

We are excited to share a significant update in our ongoing pursuit of innovation and improvement.

As part of our continuous commitment to providing our customers with the latest technology, we have redefined the experience of voice-to-text message transcription. Recently, we took a significant step by replacing the previous text-to-speech system with the powerful Whisper technology, the AI-based voice recognition engine from OpenAI.

Using AI through Whisper represents a substantial improvement in the accuracy and flexibility of transcriptions.

This change also certifies VoIPstudio’s ongoing commitment to the technological forefront.

What is Whisper?

Whisper is an Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) model developed by OpenAI. This system is designed to convert human speech into text and has been trained on extensive voice data to enhance accuracy.

Whisper is part of OpenAI’s initiative to advance natural language processing technologies, making them more accessible and valuable in various applications such as automatic transcriptions, virtual assistants, and more.

The Whisper technology is a crucial component of OpenAI’s ongoing efforts to drive research in artificial intelligence and improve the understanding and generation of natural language.

Benefits of applying Whisper in voice message transcription

The shift to Whisper offers significant improvements in transcription quality and greater flexibility in handling multiple languages.

Here are some key benefits of this update:

Improved accuracy in transcriptions

Whisper has demonstrated enhanced accuracy compared to the previous engine. It ensures that transcriptions of voice messages to text are more faithful to reality, facilitating the understanding and management of information in the messages.

Adaptability to different languages

Until now, our system couldn’t identify the language of a voicemail message, and we relied on assigning the language based on the user’s location set in the configuration. For instance, if someone was assigned to a location in Spain, we assumed all voicemail messages were recorded in Spanish.

From now on, the audio recording is sent to the AI engine, which automatically detects the language. It means that even if someone leaves a voicemail message in English for someone assigned to a location in Spain, the transcription will work correctly.

With the ability to automatically detect the language of the voicemail message, Whisper provides a more dynamic and adaptable solution. It eliminates limitations associated with user location-based assumptions and ensures accurate transcription, regardless of the language used.

Support for a wide range of languages

The inclusion of support for a variety of languages allows greater flexibility in communication. You can cater to users who speak different languages without worrying about the accuracy of transcriptions, as Whisper is designed to handle a wide range of languages.

Increased processing efficiency

Integration with Whisper simplifies transcription by directly passing the audio recording to the artificial intelligence engine. It improves message management efficiency and reduces latency, providing faster and more accurate responses.

VoIPstudio looks to the future
