The Problem With Traditional STT

Years ago, speech-to-text was hailed as the big game-changer. It’s great for voice assistants with small sound bites, but for phone calls and meetings it’s slow, inaccurate, expensive, and takes way too long to integrate.

Unique Sounds + Phrases

Every person you do business with has unique vocal attributes, accents, and phrases they like to use. Businesses also have unique product names, technical terms, and industry jargon that are hard for traditional solutions to recognize.

Why Deepgram?

Deepgram is the only platform that learns continuously from your audio, giving you accuracy that starts high and only improves with use. That’s the difference between End-to-End Deep Learning (us), and adding AI to legacy technology (Google, Amazon, etc.).

Poor Audio Quality

Audio from phone calls and collaboration apps is often low quality due to data compression and challenging acoustic environments.

Why Deepgram?

Deepgram offers the only speech recognition solution designed — from the ground up — to handle all manner of complex audio from background noise to the effects of lossy transmission protocols.

Background Noise

Meeting attendees join from their cars with the radio playing, from echoey conference rooms, and kitchens with children running around. This acoustic environment presents serious issues for traditional STT.

Why Deepgram?

Deepgram is the only STT that automatically adjusts to your audio profile, and can distinguish between speakers by the sound of their voices to give you the best possible transcript.

Length of Call

In contrast to consumer use cases, most business audio is far longer than a few seconds. The longer the audio, the harder it is to maintain useful accuracy and return text in a short amount of time.

Why Deepgram?

Deepgram is optimized for conversational audio. That means we’re built to process large quantities of audio for transcription and understanding — fast. It also means you won’t get charged in 15-second increments for a file that lasted only 4, because we know that adds up. Well hello, Scalability!

Human accuracy hype has misguided expectations.

Businesses have tested numerous speech recognition systems under false promises of increased productivity and accuracy, only to find that low accuracy tools create additional problems. Two transcripts can be 85% accurate, or have a word error rate (WER) of 15%, while having vastly different levels of usefulness. 90% accuracy means nothing if the words you care about analyzing or automating actions from are in the missed 10%.

WHY DEEPGRAM?

Deepgram is the only 100% Deep Learning platform that leans continuously from your audio. Get upwards of 90% transcription accuracy out of the box and improve it further with model training.

Cost Prohibitive Solutions = Low Visibility

Legacy speech solutions are computationally inefficient. Their high cost of operation has led enterprises to transcribe only some of their available audio — often only 1-30% — leaving the rest untouched. To make matters worse, when legacy systems provide low-accuracy transcripts, humans are required to validate date before it can be used.

Why Deepgram?

Because we’re optimized for mass quantities of conversational audio, which means you can now process all of your calls. Yes, all of them. Our hardware and usage costs are a hell of a lot lower, too, so scalability is a thing you can actually have now.

Traditional STT APIs are extremely frustrating to work with.

API requests from leading ASR providers often fail as these systems break with audio longer than 15 seconds, and backups in the queue. This is an overwhelmingly frustrating experience for product, data science and engineering teams.

Why Deepgram?

Our API was designed to put the needs of software developers first, and comes with docs, SDKs, and tutorials that make it insanely easy to use. Oh, and did we mention the $150 in free credits at sign up?

Signs You Need a Stronger ASR Foundation

Engineering
Push-Back

Product leaders have avoided building voice products altogether or try to build in-house solutions. These projects often drag on for 1-3 years with little gained.

High Operations Costs

Call centers are struggling to keep agents productive as calls exponentially increase. Instead of using accurate ASR they’re manually monitoring 1-2% of calls at a high cost.

Lack of BUSINESS Insights

Data Scientists grow frustrated with unparsable speech data. Extra deployment work, slows down projects and in turn the business, as they are left without valuable insights.

Failed CX Projects

Managers are disappointed with failed Customer Experience (CX) initiatives. They worry they’ll fall behind competitors who have made AI or Voice capabilities their differentiator.

Don’t compromise.

Deepgram includes the enterprise features, scalability, and flexibility that businesses need. We’ve reinvented speech recognition with complete, deep learning models that allow you to get more accurate, more reliable transcription, with understanding. We do it better, faster and cheaper than the big guys — on-prem, or in the cloud.

Multi-Channel Support

Reliably identify speaker changes across single and multi-channel audio.

Timestamps

Each word includes an associated timestamp. Drill into audio snippets with specific start and end times.

Punctuation

Use punctuation in your transcripts to make them easier for humans, and machines to read.

Realtime Streaming

Keep the conversation flowing. Transcribe phone and meeting conversations as they happen.

Deep Search

Find specific terms or phrases within transcripts based on phonetic patterns, not text.

Redaction

Automatically redact sensitive data such as PCI from transcripts.

Diarization

Identify up to 10 different speakers at one time. Don’t worry we won’t charge you multiple times.
