The software development kits and application enablers produced by SRI International are rapidly being designed into new product and service offerings for a number of industries.
Mobile network operators and handset manufacturers realize that more usable interfaces hold the key to broader consumer adoption of exciting new mobile applications. SRI offers a natural spoken interface capability for entering application commands, initiating mobile search requests by voice, and combining complex service requests on mobile handsets.
Suppliers of navigation, entertainment, and telematics systems to the automotive industry recognize the growth opportunity in automotive electronics. Voice-based control of in-vehicle entertainment, comfort, and communications systems provides a hands-free, eyes-on-the-road interface that addresses safety issues while opening up richer applications to drivers and passengers.
Manufacturers of commercial and military aircraft cockpit instrumentation systems are employing speech recognition systems for use by pilots. Developers of pilot and air traffic controller training and simulation systems use speech recognition for training and certification testing of personnel. Technical operations departments with maintenance and equipment inspectors use mobile, hands-free computing devices to enter service record information for aircraft.

Equipment inspectors and mechanics, insurance claims adjusters, real estate agents, couriers and package delivery services, and other industries with highly mobile, hands-on employees are using embedded speech recognition on portable devices to make data entry and lookup faster and lower cost.
Use of speech recognition technology is expanding in the medical field in a variety of applications, from transcription of doctors' reports, to entry of data for patient medical records and drug prescriptions, and even for translation between caregivers and patients who do not speak the same language.Quicktime WMV
Defense & Public Safety:
SRI has been a leader in providing U.S. military forces with noise-robust, embedded speech recognition in military applications ranging from handheld language translation devices for soldiers to speech recognition systems for command and control in military environments.
As the volume of digital content consumers can store expands, the need for easy ways to search content, create playlists, retrieve content, and share it is increasing. SRI's embedded speech recognition has been developed with consumer use in mind to allow high accuracy access to multimillion-record databases containing information on songs, books, DVDs, and other items that are organized in large catalogs.
Publishers of educational software, eLearning websites, distance learning, training systems. online testing systems, and simulation products have the potential to make their offerings more authentic, engaging, immersive and realistic by using spoken input. As the cost of capturing, storing, and transmitting video decreases, interactive two-way systems employing speech recognition are forecasted to grow.
