Waverly Labs adds voice and language solutions

As international travel and in-person conferences and events return, Waverly Labs has added new voice and language solutions for global communication. 

Subtitles is a two-sided customer service counter display that aims to promote hygienic, safe in-person interactions, while Audience is a translation solution helping speakers and lecturers communicate with auditorium attendees. The Ambassador Interpreter, the over-the-ear device providing near-simultaneous audio and text translations, has been updated.  

The solutions can translate 20 languages and 42 dialects.

Waverly Labs combines speech recognition, machine translation and adaptable hardware technology. Its core technology captures speech, processes it in the cloud, and delivers translations to various devices and solutions optimized for different businesses and use cases. The new devices and software additions are so fast and accurate they can handle ongoing fluid conversations with people in a natural and unimpaired way. They are so sophisticated they can translate conversations with multiple users, all receiving different language translations simultaneously.  

Waverly Labs offers audio and text translations across multiple devices and services, in more than 20 languages and 42 dialects including English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Arabic, Greek, Russian, Hindi, Turkish, Polish, Chinese Mandarin, Japanese, Korean, Cantonese, Hebrew, Thai, Vietnamese and Dutch.

The Services

Developed during the pandemic to facilitate safe, face-to-face bilingual communications, Subtitles by Waverly Labs is a solution for customer service interactions in various businesses. After selecting the desired languages, users can talk naturally. Spoken words are translated and displayed as text on the opposite person’s screen in their chosen language and in near real-time. Subtitles uses two screens, a connected processing unit and a mic array that captures conversation and sends them to the cloud. The proprietary technology lets users communicate like watching a subtitled movie and reading what the other person said.    

Audience by Waverly Labs is a translation solution for lectures, educators, and conference event organizers that lets presenters converse with a room regardless of what language they or their audience speak. The app allows audience members to select a language and receive translations on their own mobile device.   

The Ambassador Interpreter 2.0 makes its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show with a sleeker look and improved speech capture for faster, more accurate translations. Worn over-the-ear, the device offers a natural interpretation experience allowing multiple users to engage in free-flowing conversations. It uses an advanced far-field microphone array combined with speech recognition neural networks to capture speech and then process the words with cloud-based machine translation engines to deliver translations. Its three modes offer personal, small group and one-on-one translations.
