VOICE Award 2005


For the second time, the VOICE Award 2005 awards the best German speech technology systems and their providers and/or operators.
A jury anonymously elected the winners of each category. The VOICE Awards were awarded on the 20th of October 2005 on the VOICE Days in Bonn.

We were involved in the development of the test methodology and analyzed the speech dialog systems according to this methodology.
