Judges impressed by speech to text software
Origin-STT is one of 19 products that have been selected to the final round of the Vietnamese Talent Awards.
Led by Do Quoc Trinh, the group has invested software than can quickly translate Vietnamese speech to text. It has been tested during the National Assembly meeting sessions. The speech was translated almost immediately with an accuracy of 93.6% and it can also recognise the accents from the northern, central and southern provinces. Moreover, it can recognise and automatically capitalise names.
However, if there were several people talking at the same time or if someone was speaking with background noise, the text had many errors. According to Trinh, Origin-STT can be applied in various fields and situations. It is currently being used at state offices and by many media agencies.
