My name is Nathan Stratton. I’m the founder and chief technology officer of Vocinity,, a conversational voice and video application startup. Our technology stack is based on best of breed and we look for vendors that excel in a lot of different areas. And Deepgram was brought into that mix initially at an exploratory level about a year ago. And then over the last year, we found that they really helped us with latency as a primary factor and also with accuracy.
If you look specifically at our use case, it’s real-time voice communications with video avatars. And the time between when the user finishes speaking and our bot is able to start speaking is something that we pay very, very close attention to. And with previous ASR vendors that we worked with, that latency was up to five hundred to all the way up to one thousand or twelve hundred milliseconds longer than with Deepgram.
