FONIX OPTIMIZES AUTOMATIC SPEECH RECOGNITION ENGINE.Fonix Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board OTC Bulletin Board
An electronic quotation listing of the bid and asked prices of OTC stocks that do not meet the requirements to be listed on the NASDAQ stock-listing system. : FONX) has introduced an optimized port of their Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) Using voice recognition to replace keypad entry for telephone voice menus. Typically used to speak the digits 0 through 9 insted of keying them, ASR systems may be able to recognize a limited vocabulary. See voice recognition and AVSR. ) Engine for the new Intel XScale microarchitecture and the Intel Integrated Performance Primitives Overview
Intel's Integrated Performance Library (Intel IPP) is a library of multi-core-ready, optimized software functions for multimedia and data processing applications, produced by Intel. (IPP (Internet Printing Protocol) A protocol for printing and managing print jobs over the Internet using HTTP. Initially conceived by Novell, Xerox and others, the IETF made it a standard in 2000 that includes authentication and encryption. See printing protocol and LPD. ). This version will deliver top-quality speech recognition capabilities to mobile wireless devices including PDAs, smart phones, and automobiles.
The integration of the Intel IPP library into Fonix ASR has resulted in a more than 14% improvement in CPU CPU

Echo is created in the telephone company's central office switch when two-wire lines from the customer are converted to four-wire lines for backbone trunks. . These added features provide higher recognition accuracy. Intel and Fonix recognize the continuing need for high-quality speech recognition software, such as Fonix ASR, in the mobile device market segment. To help speed the development of new speech recognition capabilities, Intel and Fonix collaborated to identify new functionality that benefits speech recognition and will be incorporated into a future release of the Intel IPP library.
"Innovative companies like Fonix demonstrate the commitment of the industry to the Intel Personal Internet Client Architecture (Intel PCA (tool, programming) PCA - A dynamic analyser from DEC giving information on run-time performance and code use. ) in the rapidly growing mobile media marketplace," said Mark Casey, director of marketing for Intel's Handheld Computing Division. "We anticipate that the optimization of Fonix' ASR technology with the Intel XScale microarchitecture and the Intel IPP library will offer wireless device manufacturers compelling voice recognition capabilities."
"Fonix ASR and the Intel XScale microarchitecture combine some of the strongest technologies to present quality speech recognition capabilities to the mobile industry," said John A. Oberteuffer, Ph.D., Fonix chief technology officer. "The integration of the Intel IPP library provides increased recognition accuracy in noisy environments without increasing CPU utilization. We expect this project will lead to the integration of multiple embedded devices and significant revenue for Fonix."
Fonix ASR offers highly accurate speech recognition solutions for speaker-independent command-and-control and continuous voice recognition for applications, including name and number voice dialing, vehicle telematics, PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) A handheld computer for managing contacts, appointments and tasks. It typically includes a name and address database, calendar, to-do list and note taker, which are the functions in a personal information manager (see PIM). functions (including contact management), and voice-directed web browsing. Fonix also offers high-quality text-to-speech solutions for embedded, wireless, and server applications.
Intel PCA is an open architecture that allows easy integration and expansion of wireless systems, using a combination of operating systems Operating systems can be categorized by technology, ownership, licensing, working state, usage, and by many other characteristics. In practice, many of these groupings may overlap. and global wireless standards. The architecture consists of interchangeable hardware and software building blocks and allows wireless hardware and software solutions providers to offer a wide range of enhanced wireless offerings across standards, generations, and geographies, faster than today's phones can.
The Intel XScale microarchitecture, introduced in August 2000, is the next generation of Intel StrongARM* architecture. Processors based on the new architecture will provide longer battery life and higher processing power to wireless devices. The Intel IPP is a software library, consisting of highly optimized functions for the development of advanced multimedia applications. The library includes core functionality for complex signal processing, image manipulation, matrix math operations, and key building blocks for enhanced multimedia functions such as MP3, MPEG (Moving Pictures Experts Group) An ISO/ITU standard for compressing digital video. Pronounced "em-peg," it is the universal standard for digital terrestrial, cable and satellite TV, DVDs and digital video recorders (DVRs). 4, and H.263.
