You shouldn’t have to adjust the way you speak so that speech recognition systems can understand you, let us worry about that. Australian English, American English, Jamaican English, African English, which do you choose?

Historically, to get the most accurate results from speech recognition technology, specialising was key. When confronted with accents, dialects and other regional variations in speech, specialist language packs were developed to ensure reliable results. Times have changed, and speech recognition is evolving and improving.

With Global English, you don’t have to worry about selecting your English dialect or accent from a drop-down menu anymore. Global English is a single English language pack which supports all major English accents for use in speech-to-text transcription. Trained on thousands of hours of spoken data from over 40 countries and tens of billions of words drawn from global sources, you no longer have to worry about your accent being understood.
