Introducing: the.Shed

Fostering a community that inspires innovation and sparks creativity - showcasing practical use cases and inventive concepts built from our tech.
Speechmatics Team Meet the Team

Learn, Inspire, and Build

At Speechmatics, we spend most of our time building APIs. We often sit behind the scenes, powering transcription, or translation, or captions, or other fantastic tech in other people’s products. 

We love this, and know that our customers’ products provide more value and are better to use with dedicated specialist speech technology built by us. They bring the industry expertise and in-depth knowledge of their customers, and we bring technological breakthroughs and expertise that ensures their speech technology remains a strong part of their product. 

But sometimes, we want to showcase how our different capabilities can be used in new and innovative ways, some of which our customers have not even tried yet. With our recent move into Speech Intelligence, we know there's a world of possibility when it comes to speech, and we want to give people ideas and inspiration on how they might use Speechmatics to build great products. 

What's the best way to showcase some of the interesting uses of our product, despite us not really having a 'front-end' to showcase them?

That's where the.Shed comes in. 

We're going to use the.Shed just as the name implies – to show you how we've been tinkering with our tools to build prototypes and proofs of concept that are by no means ready to launch as general release products. Instead, we want to give you a peak behind the curtain and see how we're experimenting with our tech, to spark ideas and imagination. Sometimes we may end up building the things we showcase in the.Shed, but most of the time we'll be sharing them so that you, our community, can take those ideas and run with them.

As part of this launch, we've made a couple of videos for you to enjoy: 

Help Contact Centers Agents Know Everything

Stuart shows you how to Speechmatics Real-Time API to create an agent assist tool that can be extremely helpful for agents working in contact centers.

Create A Dashboard for Media Monitoring

If you'd be interested in contributing a video to the.Shed, let us know. We’d love to see your ideas and concepts in action, so please get in touch on Twitter.
