World’s First Ag Voice-to-Text Tech Featured in October 17 Tech Talk

AgVoice is the world’s first voice-to-text start-up company that allows ag professionals the freedom to work hands-free while on-the-go. The startup will be hosting a Tech Talk on October 17, 2018, to share how farmers can use the voice-to-text technology to improve productivity and workflow management, increase documentation accuracy and gain valuable insights to optimize the use of resources in production.

During the session, AgVoice CEO Bruce Rasa will cover the ins and outs of the startup’s mobile voice-interaction service, as well as explain how food and agriculture professionals can use the technology to capture insights on the go.

He will discuss how the technology was designed to achieve four unique features:

  1. Recognize Food and Ag Terms: The AgVoice service is created with a lexicon that is ag-centric and is able to decipher agricultural terms, names and niche words. 
  2. No Connectivity Required: In many ag operations, internet and cloud connectivity is either non-existent or intermittent. AgVoice sees a future in which the service could run on a smartphone, in an offline mode, without connectivity to match the realities of the ever changing environments of food production and agriculture.
  3. Immediate Corrections: No speech recognition software is perfect. However, with important tasks such as recording food safety data, every single word must be correct. AgVoice recognizes this discrepancy and has designed a system (patent pending) that empowers users in the field to correct checklists and notes on the spot.
  4. Ease of Use: AgVoice’s technology is a voice-first design. Users are able to open the app on their phone and navigate the service using solely their voice.
