As video game developers look new ways to bring innovation to gameplay and the way players interface with the hardware, Fonix Speech is bringing the latest upgrade in its Voiceln voice command and control solution to the 2005 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco. Fonix will demonstrate an upgraded version of Fonix VoiceIn for cross-platform video game developers at Available for Xbox, PlayStation 2, PC and Mac developers, Fonix VoiceIn allows for the integration of functionality.
Upgrades to Fonix VoiceIn include grammar support to allow for multiple word recognition in a single utterance, in addition to single-word recognition. Also, Italian language support joins existing support for English, French, Spanish, German and Japanese.
New developer tools integrated in Fonix Voiceln include a solution for identifying words that are phonetically similar to cut down on word confusion. In addition, a pronunciation adaptation tool allows developers to make voice recognition of their vocabularies even more accurate. To make the neural network-based technology even more accurate for younger players, the company has built a new neural net designed for children’s voices.
Fonix, an operating division of Salt Lake City-based integrated communications carrier Fonix Corp., will be located at Booth 532 March 9-11. Developers interested in setting up meetings with company representatives at the show can call (801)-553-6600 and say “games.” For more information about Fonix VoiceIn, go to www.fonix.com/games.
