Voiceitt has introduced the new spontaneous web app- here you can read about what it does, who is it for, and see frequent answers and questions.
What is the new spontaneous speech web app?
The dictated text can then be read out loud by a synthetic voice, and it also can be copied and pasted somewhere else.
so it can be used to dictate emails, social media posts, writing your stories or thoughts, or just to communicate with others who do not understand your speech.
As opposed to the Voiceitt iOS app, it is able to understand spontaneous speech and will be available on the web, so will be accessible from a computer\ smartphone.
Who is the ideal Voiceitt web app user?
The Voiceitt web app supports users with non-standard speech. This means Voiceitt can be used by individuals with various diagnoses that may impact their speech. Some of those diagnoses are Cerebral Palsy (CP), Downs Syndrome, autism spectrum disorders (ASD), Parkinson's disease (PD), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis (MS), muscular dystrophy (MD), Huntington's disease (HD), deaf or hard of hearing and more.
In a nutshell, the web app is best suited for:
- Individuals who find that standard speech-recognition software does not always understand them due to their speech impairment.
- Individuals with impaired speech who are generally understood by familiar listeners but less understood by unfamiliar listeners.
- Individuals with intact language who say what they intend to and speak in full sentences.
- Individuals who are interested in using speech recognition technology for communication.
- English speakers
Before accessing the web app, we will have to listen to a few recordings to be sure you are a good fit. You can read more about this here.
What does the Voiceitt web app do?
The Voiceitt web app is a speech-to-text augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) software that allows people with speech impairments to use their voice for communication. This system was built to understand non-standard speakers, such as those with motor-speech disabilities, and "translate" their speech to text and automated voice output. It listens to what you say, then writes it down on the screen and can play it aloud. The dictated text can be copied and pasted somewhere else, so you can dictate your emails, social media posts, private messages, etc.
What can the new web app understand?
The new web app is built to understand free and spontaneous non-standard speech even if what you are saying was not pre-trained.
Note: the recognition might be partially accurate at first, but the more you use and train it, the more accurate it becomes. We constantly work to improve our technology and welcome your comments and feedback. Please reach us at email@example.com.
What devices will the new web app work on?
The web app opens on any device connected to the internet and can open a web browser.
Do I need internet access?
Yes. The Voiceitt web app works on the web, so internet access is required.
Do I need to train the Voiceitt web app?
Yes, a minimum of 400 phrases must be trained because every person has a unique speech pattern and voice. The system needs to be customized for every new user. The training is used to create a voice model for every user. You can read more about training here
How long does it take to create my voice model?
Please allow two weeks for Voiceitt to build your custom recognition model. You can always follow up on the progress by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

For beta testers who have recorded a minimum of 1000 phrases, up until August 2023, will get free access for a year- until August 2024.
For the current subscription plans please contact us at email@example.com
Can I listen to or copy the dictated text?
Yes. There is an option for every sentence to play aloud automatically after you say it. Once you have finished dictating your thoughts, there is an option to play the entire text aloud by clicking "play all." You may also copy the text and paste it to an email or word processing software.
What is the difference between the web app and the Voiceitt iOS app?
* While the Voiceitt iOS app can only understand pre-defined and trained phrases, the new web app is designed to understand spontaneous conversation and to understand phrases that were not pre-trained.
* While the Voiceitt iOS app can connect to Amazon Alexa and allows you to control your smart home, the web app is for communicating your thoughts. It does not
It does not connect to Alexa or any other smart assistant however, it can still be used to control smart home assistants through the traditional route of web app speaker output to your smart assistant microphone input.
We recommend using the iOS app for controlling smart home- devices.
The Voiceitt iOS app and web app are two different products. An individual can use both technologies without interference from each other.
How many users can be registered under one email account?
One! Since the Voiceitt web app is custom-built for each individual, everyone who wishes to experience this technology must create and use their own email account.
