By Beecher Tuttle, TMCnet Contributor
Global speech technology provider Loquendo recently announced the launch of the most recent version of its Media Resource Control Protocol (MRCP) Server software for Windows and Linux.
Loquendo (News - Alert), a leading provider of speech recognition and text to speech solutions, released the new version of its software to help support companies that need to conform to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which ensures that consumers' credit card information is never compromised. The company's MRCP Server software is now validated and is in compliance with the industry standard.
By introducing the innovative software solution, Loquendo is enabling clients that leverage Loquendo ASR and TTS technologies to disable the automatic logging of sensitive call information, such as credit card numbers, according to a company release. Furthermore, the latest version of MRCP Server software is equipped with a new Log Collector Tool, which makes it easier for companies to respond to users' technical assistance requests by simplifying the analysis of product issues.
In an effort to offer solutions to a wider array of clientele, Loquendo has also added support for a number of new operating systems, including SuSE 11, RHEL 5 & CentOS 5.
Loquendo MRCP Server is interoperable with some of today's most recognized speech platforms. The solution is designed to be utilized by companies that are looking to develop automated telephony applications using Loquendo multilingual speech. It is interoperable with any MRCPv1 or v2 clients and can be configured as TTS-only, ASR-only, or both TTS and ASR, according to officials with Loquendo. Companies that leverage the MRCP Server can create speech technologies that are capable of being integrated into all VoiceXML (News - Alert) 2.0 and 2.1 applications.
