Orbis 1.4.0 Release Notes

  • Newest generation of Speaker Identification technology added
    Speaker identification technology verifies and authenticates speakers in seconds. The new generation has increased accuracy by 1 percentage point (a relative improvement of 33 %) – XL5 model vs. XL4 model that was previously in Orbis. The processing speed of the XL5 model is the same or faster than that of the XL4 model.
  • Speech to Text in Orbis
    New editions of Orbis Investigator may include also Speech to Text technology. This technology enables converting audio into the text for better and faster understanding of the content. Box with transcribed text is straight under the recording itself.
    Limitation: Transcription of text is provided for one chosen language per one Orbis instance.
  • Search for key words within transcribed text
    The transcribed recording allows full text search.
    If user is having an Orbis edition including Speech to Text technology, he/she may search for concrete words of interest within the text of the transcribed audio files by creating a new type of a so called hit rule. Receive a valuable information faster and more easily.
