Right now mobile usage is exploding in China. The country has more than 1.2 billion mobile subscriptions, and in 2013, it boasted a 165.4 percent e-mobile YoY growth rate. With the number of China’s mobile subscribers continuing to grow, the demand for Mandarin-based mobile identity verification solutions is also increasing. Companies that are building Chinese apps need a way to protect end users from the growing list of threats related to theft and hacking.
VoiceVault is thrilled to announce that it can now help Chinese application developers bolster security efforts in the software they create with its voice biometric solution, ViGo, which is now the world’s first biometric solution capable of being used in conjunction with the Mandarin Chinese language. Using VoiceVault, all an end user has to do is speak a short phrase into a mobile device and the software will verify his or her identity. The language specificity is necessary in voice biometrics recognition.
One of the best parts about VoiceVault’s announcement is that the company also revealed its plans to further increase the number of languages with which ViGo will be compatible. By successfully creating a voice biometrics solution capable of supporting a character-based language, VoiceVault is paving the way for expansion into similar languages that, previously, were difficult to integrate with voice recognition software.
“This is a great step forward for the voice biometrics industry,” said VoiceVault CTO Tim Furnell, commenting on the announcement. “We’re excited to be working with Chinese organizations on mobile app development projects in Mandarin.” With voice biometric challenges overcome, Furnell stated that delivering text-prompted Mandarin Chinese identity verification is simple, straightforward and secure.
