Automatic Speech Recognition

SalesHood announced the release of Automatic Speech Recognition services to help companies share knowledge across teams and employees faster and more consistently. SalesHood’s automatic transcription services powers real-time, experiential knowledge sharing.

SalesHood now transcribes all audio from video into text. The transcription of spoken words or dialogue in video makes key points searchable, accelerating the research and learning process for users.

“We made it extremely efficient to capture what people are saying from their mobile devices while they are on the go and automate the transcription of their speech,” says Elay Cohen, CEO, SalesHood. “The accelerated knowledge sharing and knowledge assessments results in faster learning and employee development.”

The SalesHood Automatic Transcription Services is using the latest natural language processing and conversational speech recognition technologies to transcribe speech from video files.

* We transcribe all video types (Deal Wins, Pitches, Huddle videos, video files, etc.) uploaded by all users (Publishers, Coaches, Managers, Individuals).
