The top four-voice technologies that will revolutionize the way in which we communicate, either with a contact center or with any other device are as follows:
Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR):
In telephone environments, this technology understands and transcribes when an interlocutor dictates his telephone number or ID to the virtual operator, thus avoiding dialing via keyboard, which means a faster and easier interaction for the user.
It is a technology that is able to analyze voice calls in real-time. This is mainly used in the retail or customer service environment. It is a tool that can detect emotion, tone to the stress of the voice.
With this data, the tool analyzes them and can identify if a user is upset or frustrated so that the other person who is on the other side will be able to better manage the requests or needs of the users and this will facilitate the way to address the trouble. This means that companies improve their services.
Voice Engine Optimization (VEO):
It is increasingly common to see smart speakers with a voice assistant in home decoration. The OC&C offers figures that indicate that by 2022, 55% of households will have several of these devices.
The ComScore company maintains that by 2020 voice searches will grow exponentially, this will cause digital marketing experts to change their content strategies and be prepared to create questions and answers.
This technology is in the development phase, when it arrives it will be a giant advance in security and privacy of personal data. This system will allow the creation of a unique, secure and non-transferable vocal footprint as a measure of authentication and a digital signature that instead of using the fingerprint or facial features.
“Thanks to these new technologies, the possibilities of carrying out actions with the voice are expanding exponentially and more and more companies are betting on them.
