It’s time for change… Welcome to Alango’s new web site!

 

We tried to make our new site more inviting and informative and easier to use.

We still have some white spots but decided to switch immediately.

Our old website (www.old.alango.com) will continue to be accessible
until all materials have been relocated here. You can find a temporary link
to our old site at the bottom of all these new pages.

We’ll appreciate your comments and suggestions. You feedback is very important to us.
Please, write to webmaster@alango.com.

Sincerely yours
Alango team

Introduction
 

Far-field voice activated devices have become quite popular in the living room.  Alango has developed a multi-microphone array technology providing Speech Recognition Enhancement in smartphones integrating 2~4 microphones.  Alango’s speech recognition enhancement adapts to different use modes to provide optimal performance while being used as a traditional close talk (handset) phone, handheld or tabletop speakerphone, and in far-field mode up to a few meters away.

Definitions
 
Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) Eliminates stereo or mono acoustic echo of voice prompts or music being played by phone in each microphone signal.  Acoustic echo canceller allow the system to respond to the user’s voice during music playback or barge-in.
Adaptive Microphone Array A microphone array utilizing a proprietary adaptive beamforming technology that preserves the speech from ambient noise and detects the direction of the voice commands.

 

Benefits
 

Flexible implementation of optimal voice pick up and transmission to the ASR according to the environment and number of microphones. 

Optimal usage of available resources and minimal power consumption. 

Portable to all major computational platforms.

 
Test Results
 

Comparison of voice trigger recognition rate in a controllable and reproducible acoustic environment (office meeting room), using:

  • 1 microphone raw audio (without any additional processing)
  • 2 microphones processed audio (2mic multidirectional voice enhancement)
  • 3 microphones processed audio (3mic multidirectional voice enhancement)
  • 4 microphones processed audio (4mic multidirectional voice enhancement)
