Away from the norm, and vividly standing clear from the regular upgrades to chatbots, SnatchBot is taking the game to a much more advanced level. The new free automated speech recognition feature stands as a multi advanced feature for chabots on the SnatchBot platform. This is one of the best AI linked developments in tech right now.

The voice recognition feature by SnatchBot does not only give the market the fiercest competition ever: the feature breaks all boundaries to become the most important upgrade to happen to bots generally.

SnatchBot’s contribution to ‘Conversational Artificial Intelligence’ proves to show particular concern for users with visual impairments and serves as spice in experience for users looking for something off the hook. With the ability to replay, download, and even manage the volume levels, now you can play the audio file of bot messages at your convenience. The accessibility feature makes talking to your chatbot feel like having a conversation with human.

High tech features requiring no technical skills:

When it comes to the seamless building of bots from scatch to polish, without having to bother with codes and other sophisticated coding processes – SnatchBot takes all the credit. It is in the same vein that the speech recognition feature that rocks the market comes in. You won’t have to write any special codes or do anything, the feature has been perfectly simulated and embedded in the SnatchBot platform.

Just how easy will it be to use free automated speech recognition?

I asked Avi Ben Ezra, the founder of SnatchBot about the ease of use. He said the following: “Using the new free automated speech recognition feature isn’t exactly the hardest thing to do – this is precisely why the market adoption rate will be very fast. In fact, it is as simple as learning ABC. SnatchBot has put all hands on deck just so you can have the powerful voice interactive feature for free. It is very easy to include in your interaction too.”

He referred me to the user-guide:

Step 1:   

Navigate your mouse and click the cog sign in the Text to Speech section.

Step 2:   

SnatchBot provides a wide range of languages and gives you a big list to select from. Select your preferred language.

Step 3:   

Listen to the samples to select your preferred voice.

Step 4:   

After selecting your preferred voice, the ‘Generate Speech Bot’s Message’ will become available. By clicking on the button, the system creates an audio file that matches the text of your interaction. If you update your bot’s message at any point, remember to update the audio file by clicking the orange refresh button.

SnatchBot gives you the option of downloading the audio file or simply listening to it. So now, you can either safe keep an interaction record or just play it in real time while you can also read the conversation at the same time.

Just how important is ASR?

You must be wondering why this new initiative attracts so much attention in the market? This explains why:

1. SnatchBot’s conversational chatbot which recognizes and records speech is absolutely free for use.

2. The AI improvement is very easy to use, just as the other SnatchBot features.

3. It is very efficient for passing messages through to visually impaired persons, potentially helping businesses comply with accessibility laws in many parts of the world.

Final scoop:

If you think about it – companies can now have a full ASR bot up and running, with procedures that are far easier than using excel or powerpoint at an intermediate level. This will certainly lead to rapid adoption.
