Loquendo Adds Speech Recognition to 3D Navigation

By Stefania Viscusi, Assignment Desk Editor

Speech technologies provider Loquendo (News - Alert) has announced its ASR Automotive solution was chosen by Nav N Go for their iGO8 navigation software.
Loquendo's solution is perfect for use in a car where environments are often noisy and mobile devices are typically small. The Loquendo ASR Automotive Solution includes enhanced recognition technology, is multilingual and is optimized for small device voice inputs.
Back in May, the company also announced that Nav N Go iGO 8 also utilizes Loquendo TTS Automotive Solution for multilingual, high-quality prompts that read out directions and are truly life-like.  
The combination of Loquendo's speech recognition and text to speech solutions provides telematics systems with the ability to offer drivers easier control and a hands-free eyes-free commute.
"The navigation market is developing extremely rapidly, and the new features that are being introduced as a result of this development define the unique selling position of every different product," said Nav N Go's Product Development Director László Késmárki. "At Nav N Go, it is important for us to offer the best there is in every single area. Automatic speech recognition will surely remain one of these functions now and in the future."
Nav N Go offers navigation solutions in Europe as well as 3D navigation software in Europe and the U.S. with high-definition maps which display roads, terrain, landmarks and buildings in three dimensions – "making visualization clearer and navigation simple and intuitive."
