Getting familiar with the technology

What is Voice Control?

Voice control technologies are transforming the way we interact with interfaces, making it possible to communicate with them using natural language. This technology is part of a broader trend towards more intuitive and human-centric interfaces, moving beyond traditional input methods like keyboards and touchscreens to something that feels more natural: speech. Whether you need to select something, tap on a keyboard, search for a term, access interfaces, scroll through a document, delete an item, open a screen, turn a feature on and off, etc., voice control is taking over to give you vocal accessibility to your device or app. 

Voice control is based on Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) technology.

At its core, voice control allows users to issue commands, ask questions, and control devices, app or software simply by speaking.  This shift towards voice as a primary mode of interaction is driven by advancements in speech recognition and natural language processing technologies. These systems can understand spoken words, interpret their intent, and take appropriate actions without the need for physical input.

At Vivoka, voice control can take two forms:

Voice control with predefined commands

Commands are pre-defined in the system; users can’t speak any other commands to trigger action.

Voice control with natural commands

The system interprets the user’s intent from spoken commands and triggers action accordingly.

Voice Control for Supply Chain / Logistics

Voice control solution is transforming logistics and supply chain management by enabling voice picking, a method that allows warehouse workers to operate hands-free and eyes-free, significantly boosting efficiency and safety. Voice technologies allow to delete previous and old methods and they lead to a smoother experience. Through partnerships like Vivoka’s with KFI, the “Vocalize” solution integrates with Warehouse Management Systems (WMS) to provide clear, real-time instructions to operators, supporting multiple languages and working accurately in noisy environments.

This technology not only streamlines operations by reducing errors and training times but also enhances safety by allowing workers to focus on their tasks without distractions. As the supply chain faces challenges like e-commerce growth and labor shortages, voice technology offers a flexible and scalable solution, improving workflows and adapting to the industry’s evolving needs.

Voice Control for Field Service Management & Maintenance

Voice control significantly enhances Field Service Management and Maintenance by providing technicians the ability to issue commands verbally, thus freeing their hands for other activities. Technicians can access and navigate through files and interfaces while using their hands for actual handwork. This innovation, highlighted by the collaboration between Vivoka and Almer Technologies, integrates voice technology into augmented reality glasses for industrial monitoring, significantly improving operational efficiency and safety.

The technology supports seamless interaction with digital tools, allowing field operators to stay focused on their tasks. It is compatible with different platforms and devices, even in remote locations with poor internet connectivity, ensuring data security and reducing response times. By adopting voice-enabled workflows, companies can improve asset management and ensure the safety of their workforce, marking a significant advancement in field operations.

Benefits of voice control

Reliable & Efficient

Voice control solutions offer significant advantages by harnessing the natural and intuitive nature of speech, making digital interactions more accessible and user-friendly. Its primary benefit lies in its simplicity and the inherent human ability to communicate verbally, which reduces the learning curve for new technologies and enhances user engagement. Importantly, this embedded technology operates independently of cloud-based solutions. Whether you have an internet connection or not, Vivoka Voice Control is reliable and efficient.

Safety & Convenience

Moreover, voice control significantly contributes to safety and convenience, especially in situations where hands-free operation is crucial. This solution is invaluable in diverse settings, from driving and industrial work to healthcare and field services, where maintaining focus and safety are paramount. Our technology is directly implemented on the interface (so directly on the device, the application, or the software), allowing for swift execution of commands without the need for processing through an external system, which streamlines operations and reduces response times. Its offline functionality caters to the demand for efficient, time-saving solutions and boosts productivity across multiple sectors, establishing voice control as a flexible and valuable asset in diverse industry settings.

Better Interaction

Our focus is shifting from Industrial Machinery to user-oriented products for hardware and electronics manufacturers, and from Business Applications to Mobile apps for software. These include, for instance, home automation systems, augmented reality glasses for industrial monitoring, and voice-enabled field service tools for professionals, showcasing our commitment to enhancing user experiences across various platforms. These applications benefit from offline functionality, offering uninterrupted service and ensuring data privacy and security since everything is embedded in the interface. Voice control features will help businesses take a step to the next level by boosting efficiency and making users interact smoothly with their work environment.

Even on complex commands

As voice recognition algorithms evolve, these systems are becoming more adept at interpreting and acting on complex commands. This advancement expands their utility, enabling more sophisticated interactions across various software and applications. By improving navigation and functionality, voice control is transforming into a critical tool that enhances productivity, ensures safety, and makes technology more inclusive and accessible to all users, marking a significant leap forward in how we interact with the digital world. The ability to operate offline caters directly to the growing demand for efficient, reliable, and secure voice-controlled solutions in both personal and professional environments.

Voice has always been the dominant mode of interaction. But now, thanks to technology, voice control is becoming the rule in human-machine interaction, offering vocal commands for various actions like selecting, typing, searching, navigating interfaces, scrolling, deleting, opening, and toggling features on or off, thereby enhancing accessibility to your device or application.

Two compositions to fit your needs

Grammar-based Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR)

Automatic Speech Recognition – ASR, also known as Speech-to-text with a grammar-based model which ensures that every command is strictly understood as it has been set. This is the Voice control – Strict Commands.

ASR + Natural Language Understanding

The second form is the Continuous ASR with a Natural Language Understanding model, which ensures the user’s intent is understood by the machine. The commands don’t have to be exact to trigger the action set. This is the Voice control – Intent-based commands.

Good morning, Guten Tag, Bonjour, Bom Dia, Buongiorno...

As we already said, language support is not a problem

Voice control can be used with other voice solutions to create the best combination for your interface, such as: 

Voice Synthesis

This allows users to get a spoken answer from the device, app or software. It’s audio feedback compared to visual or signal ones.

Speech Enhancement

It is the ideal complementary solution as it allows to clear the noisy environment in no time when giving a voice command.

Voice Dictation

Dictation accurately transcribes your speech to text in real time. With voice control, users can trigger the start of dictation.

Wake Word

This is a very singular word to wake your interface. The most famous ones are Alexa from Amazon, Siri from Apple or OK Google. Here, you can create your own Voice Assistant name, for example a Hey Vivoka!

Voice Biometrics

• Voice Authentication: An action can be triggered if the user has a vocal sample in the database.

• Voice Identification: Users can be identified among vocal samples: the user is recognized by the machine.
