This futuristic business treat comes from our friends at Microsoft. Last week, the company announced that their speech recognition technology was now on the same level as human transcriptionists. Soon after the announcement the company emphasized the significance of this milestone. Noting, in their blog, that there were “broad implications for consumer and business products that can be significantly augmented by speech recognition.” No word on how much this technology will cost business owners, but remember funding is always available.

Our team of private investors are able to help 99% of industries get funding for advanced speech recognition technology.
