‘Agnes’ leverages Google’s Speech-to-Text platform to transcribe in real-time customer voice at enterprise call centers. It uses a high-performance RPC framework developed by Google (gRPC protocol) to stream user speech to Google’s Speech Recognition (GSR) in real-time. This drastically reduces the latency between the plugin and GSR.

Agnes supports 120 languages in the GSR platform, and it can be easily integrated with an existing system. And because it is dynamically coded, it can be tailor-fit to client’s specific requirements.
According to Phonon Communications’ Managing Director, UjwalMakhija, with the launch of Agnes, Phononjoinsaselectfewcompanieswhichhavereal-timestreamingcapabilitiesonGoogle’sSpeech- to-Textplatform.
