With the Speechy Client Library for Unity, developers can now easily add Voice UIs as a Feature to their experiences built with Unity.
The world of AR/VR, Gaming, and Metaverse experiences continues to grow, so we are excited to release our Speechly Client Library for Unity. This release is the result of growing demand for being able to easily add a Real-Time Voice UI as a Feature to these experiences to make them more interactive and easier to navigate.
How it Works
This client library streams audio from a Unity or .NET app to the Speechly cloud Voice API and provides a C# API for receiving real-time Speech-to-Text (STT) transcription and Natural Language Understanding (NLU) results. This makes it easy to enable users to Command and Control the environment around them using their Voice.
Speechly is a Voice API that makes it easy to build voice features into games, AR/VR/XR experiences, mobile apps and websites. If you would like to learn more about Speechly or get access to our API, you can sign up for a free account or reach out to us here.
Speechly is a YC backed company building tools for speech recognition and natural language understanding. Speechly offers flexible deployment options (cloud, on-premise, and on-device), super accurate custom models for any domain, privacy and scalability for hundreds of thousands of hours of audio.
Speechly recently released the Voice Chat Toxicity Report for Online Games - a consumer survey of over 1000 online gamers on consumers perspective and sentiment towards toxicity on video games. In this interview, Otto Söderlund (Co-Founder and CEO at Speechly) and Bret Kinsella (Founder of Voicebot.ai) sat down to dig into the key results.
