Our Aim is to Understand Every Voice

At Speechmatics, we've created the most inclusive and accurate Speech API ever released. We're changing the way companies work by giving them foundational speech technology for the AI era.

Our Story

The Speechmatics story began in the 1980s when founder Dr Tony Robinson pioneered the approach of applying neural networks to the problem of speech recognition at Cambridge University.
