What is Audio Front End ?
Audio Front End is the combination of multiple technologies created to evaluate and improve the signal quality of an audio source. Dividing sound into different criterias such as signal-to-noise ratio, echo/reverb level or signal fiability makes it possible to apply specific filters to the signal so that its quality is perfect for voice-based use cases.
Some use cases made real with audio front end solutions
Audio Front End is made for companies and developers that plan to develop voice-based features in specific fields with environments property that requires to improve the recorder audio signals.
For industries or outdoor areas where parasite noise can interfere with the signal quality, reducing the reliability of the voice commands.
Used for use case that features far-field microphone use where echo and reverd can drastically modify the audio signal composition.
Using MOS evaluation through machine learning models to evaluate the overall signal quality and reliability.
A technology available inside the Voice Development Kit
1. Stream or upload your audio files
Gather different audio files or record them directly through the VDK with multiple setups (microphones, range, far or close field, ambiant noise…) to start working.
2. Evaluate your audio signal quality
Our Audio Front End solution will give scoring to your audio file regarding the criterias you chose (signal to noise ratio, echo level, MOS scoring…).
3. Apply filters to improve your recordings
For low-scoring audio files, find the good mix of audio filters (noise cancellation, echo reduction…) to find chich setup you need for your use case.

Frequently Asked Questions on
Audio Front End
A few things to know…
Audio Front End is not a technology anyone is familiar with. We cover some of the recurrent topics about it in order to give you insights.
Is it possible to apply multiple filters to the same recording?
Yes it is possible and recommanded in some situations, for instance where both noise and echo are disturbing the speech signal quality.
Is there a difference regarding the microphone used for the audio recording?
Absolutely, the type microphone has a big impact on the signal quality depending on its features compatibility with the recording environement.
Are filters customizable to reach a specific result?
Audio filters available with the Audio Front End can be setup and modified regarding your expected results.
How to integrate speech signal filters inside my products?
Creating and applying filters to your test signal will generate you code that you will be able to integrate inside your software following our documentation.
