Wake Word Creation Tool

Wake Word allows to voice-enable the activation of your products and services. Use our  custom creation tool to make your own embedded trigger word.

What is a Wake Word ?

Wake Word is a passive listening system that has only one objective, to detect the keyword assigned to it. The main interest of this tool is to save the resources used by activating the actual listening of the user only when the wake word has been recognized.

For instance, “Hey Siri” or “Ok Google” are reknown hot words. What don’t you make one of your own ?

Totally embedded, therefore private by design, our technology does not record any voice data during listening.

Words must be chosen according to different criteria to be effective and avoid false positives (bad detections). First of all, choose words with several syllables to make it more robust and less prone to errors.

Choose a keyword that identifies with your brand to ensure your image and notoriety. The chosen keyword(s) must be as unique as possible in the spoken language to avoid accidental triggering.
