Swiss startup Typewise launches new auto-correct technology on Wednesday. These and other features were further developed with ETH Zurich.
New AI keyboard
“The team has worked hard to build increasingly powerful features in its award-winning autocorrect technology. The result is a new version of Typewise that represents a major breakthrough in terms of design, efficiency and accuracy. Typewise’s co-founder and CEO David Eberle, said in the quoted statement: ‘We are We are proud to work closely with our user community in developing our new version to get a good understanding of what users of different languages all over the world need. ”
Recognizes language – including dialect
Additionally, Typewise 3.0 now supports multiple languages at the same time, which was previously not possible with the free version. The mobile phone keyboard can automatically recognize the language the user is writing in and switch to that language. In this way, typing errors can be avoided without the user having to manually change the language in the settings. According to Communication, this recognition software is so good that it even recognizes someone’s use of an accent or slang. This function is currently available in more than 40 languages. This means, for example, that the keyboard can also learn Swiss German, which the author can confirm.
NB: Using multiple languages is a professional advantage. If you are using the free version, you can change the main language via settings.
Today’s announcement indicates that in collaboration with ETH Zurich, its auto-correction capabilities, speech recognition (premim), and complete data protection have been improved. Speech recognition is a premium functionality dedicated only to paying customers (see Availability and Pricing).
