Webex partners with Voiceitt to enhance workplace accessibility

Cisco’s collaboration tool, Webex, has announced a partnership with Voiceitt, a speech recognition technology, to enhance accessibility for people with non-standard speech.

The new integration uses AI captioning and transcription from Voiceitt to ensure that people with speech impairments are able to speak and are understood in virtual meetings.

Voiceitt’s technology is based on machine learning algorithms that are learning constantly from the growing database of individual users’ speech.

“The integration with Webex is game-changing because it creates more independence for users with disabilities, while increasing the potential for more collaborative, inclusive work environments,” said Sara Smolley, Voiceitt co-founder and vice president, strategic partnerships at Cisco. “True collaboration means everyone at the table has a voice.”

Voiceitt for Webex is available now in the Webex Hub. Later this year, it will include closed captioning capabilities for transcription accuracy.
