"At the core of the Voice Board is Kika's speech recognition engine, built using deep learning," said Bill Hu, CEO of Kika Tech. "Users find voice typing redundant because no matter what you still need to switch back to keyboard to 'type,' and this is the problem Voice Board wants to tackle. After all, speaking is still the most natural way to communicate. Voice Board is designed for voice as the primary input method."
An extension of the company's flagship product, Kika Keyboard, Voice Board provides more features than other voice-typing apps in the market, making voice-typing a better way to chat in IM scenarios. Features and benefits include:
Fast – Smart correction allows users to quickly correct typos on Voice Board. Users won't need to switch back to the main keyboard to delete and retype. When users see typos in the text box, they can just click the replace button and say the word to replace the typo. Kika uses its AI algorithm to determine which word to replace through similar sound/similar meaning.
- For example: Can't wait to sell the voice bored with my friends. Click Replace and say "share the voice board" then text changes into → Can't wait to share the voice board with my friends.
- Users can also say: "replace sell the voice bored with share the voice board" or click on the words "sell the voice bored", click Replace then say "share the voice board" to make the change.
Whole – Voice Board provides all the components including emojis, punctuation and cursors for you to type just the way users are accustomed to on a traditional keyboard.
Accuracy – Voice Board is more accurate than other voice-typing apps because it adapts to noisy environments. Using deep learning technology, Voice Board can precisely understand speakers with different accents.
