Phonecasting pioneer Ipadio
partnered with Thames Valley, London based provider of voice to content messaging SpinVox
to unveil an Android (News
) application that will generate discoverable and searchable text direct from an ipadio call.
The Android application uses SpinVox API, which stands for Application Programming Interface, to generate automatically the titles, tags and a transcript to appear beside the audio broadcast. Earlier this month, TMCnet reported
Audioboo has also leveraged SpinVox (News
) API to convert speech to text.
The application also allows users to integrate the service with their other social media accounts, such as Twitter, Facebook (News
), Wordpress, Blogger and others.
“Ipadio has grasped the opportunity to work with SpinVox API, producing the first app to use our voice-to-text capabilities on Android. The desire to get converted phone blogs onto the Internet quickly and easily has been growing for a while now. Together, we’re helping people bypass their mobile keyboard and communicate in the moment by using their voice. By automatically converting their voice-to-text, SpinVox then helps that content be quickly and easily searched, filed, or forwarded,” said Christina Domecq (News
), co-founder and CEO, SpinVox.
Dr. Mark K. Smith, ipadio CEO, adds, “With the new application, people will be able to call ipadio while on the road and see the converted text appear in search results before getting back to the office. Voice-to-text conversion has been top of the list of requirements for our serious business users, so we are delighted to announce this development. In addition to the Android application, we are working on other applications and, of course, on making SpinVox conversion available to people using our live service from any phone.”
Any user on any phone can access Ipadio LIVE! to broadcast live to the Internet. The paid service from Ipadio includes features such as workflow process such as moderation, group access and distribution, save to database and additional in-call functionality. SpinVox conversion will be integrated into the commercial service.
A leader in the live audio-to-web market, Ipadio has been catering to the needs of organizations and individuals as diverse as government, media companies, sports championships, travel companies, tourist boards, charity campaigners and fundraisers, bloggers and comedians.
