Cedat85 has announced the launch of Cabolo, a smart voice recognition technology and ecosystem that records and transcribes in real-time. This will be distributed exclusively by Lexacom in the UK.
Cabolo uses speech recognition to record and transcribe meetings – face-to-face or virtual – in real-time. It enables organisations to organise, archive and quickly retrieve any previous meeting recording, transcription or minutes with the aid of a full-text search engine.
The portable, standalone unit doesn’t require an internet connection. It was developed in response to a growing need for a completely private, secure and ‘off grid’ device that provides an alternative to existing cloud-based transcription solutions.
Cedat85 says the technology has been tried and tested with numerous companies – including North Warwickshire Borough Council in the UK and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), Intesa Sanpaolo and Illy in Italy. Cabolo can be customised to transcribe multiple languages, with specialised vocabularies for various sectors or accents. It can also plug in to existing conference systems, provide live subtitles and can be used for board meetings, interviews, training and more.
Enrico Giannotti, managing director at Cedat85, explained, “We know businesses have a real need to make meetings more productive, secure and inclusive, which is why we’re excited to launch Cabolo in the UK market. While there are many solutions for live transcriptions in the market, Cabolo’s solution and combination of benefits to organisations is truly unique – it’s a simple, smart and secure solution for recording and transcribing meetings that has been developed in response to customers’ desire for a high quality, private, non-cloud-based solution.”
Dr Andrew Whiteley, managing director of Lexacom added, “Lexacom are delighted to be working with such this incredibly innovative and exciting solution. Cabolo has the potential to revolutionise how conversations are documented. There are no limits to its application; from the HR meeting to the board meeting, from the university lecture to the courtroom.”
