What is a speech analysis app?

A speech analysis application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables users to convert audio recordings of human speech into text. Speech apps typically include interfaces for recording audio files containing human speech and transcribing individual words from the recorded audio clips. Speech apps may also offer features for transforming the raw transcriptions into grammatically correct sentences. Speech apps are often used by language learners who want to practice their pronunciation as they learn new languages.

speech analysis apps share features with other health & fitness apps, such as health & fitness tracking apps, meditation apps, and sleep tracking apps. The most popular example of a speech analysis app is Dragon Dictation.

How to successfully grow your speech analysis application

A speech analysis app is a type of data analytics app that can grow quickly by taking advantage of early adopters in the medical industry. Speech analysis apps are used primarily by physicians and clinical researchers, and they are able to grow rapidly by incorporating features that allow doctors to easily use the data from their patients' tests. Speech analysis apps have the advantage of not requiring users to train them in order to start using them; they simply provide data based on new user input. To compete successfully, speech analytics apps need to have a large number of users already on the platform, as well as advanced features such as a pay-per-use model for medical professionals.

Risks and challenges of building a speech analysis application

A speech analysis app faces legal risks related to the storage of sensitive personal information. You will want to ensure that your application is not used in operations that violate laws and regulations restricting the collection and use of sensitive data. This may include requiring users to consent to the use of their speech data, anonymizing or pseudonymizing user records, providing clear notices regarding how speech data is used, and maintaining institutional control processes where appropriate.
