This Active-X control demonstrates a simple speaker verification process without transmitting anything over the Internet or requiring a complicated series of installations and rebooting to try it. The entire download is less than 200K. All of your biometric information will stay in memory on your PC until the keypad is closed, at which time all of your biometric templates, your "voice prints", will be discarded.
This application, which includes a scaled down implementation of our patented voice authentication method, as well as the ability to run automated testing against over 450,000 voices in our test database is included. It has been written entirely using Microsoft Visual Basic 5.0.
PC running Microsoft Windows.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 or higher (Firefox and Safari do not support Active-X)
Windows compatible microphone for speech input (calibrated).
The keypad format of the demonstration is an example of how the most commonly used method of human authentication used in the world, PINs, can be easily enhanced to include the use of a biometric "password". The "password" is provided by the person at the moment of a secure transaction or when accessing a secured area. In this case, a voice print.
Furthermore, advances in micro chip technology allow this process to be integrated into many common consumer electronics devices for about $20 USD cost of goods addition to an existing product (in production quantities). This cost of goods estimate includes our "VSS Certified" components and our proprietary firmware platform which drives the application.
We recommend using the Andrea NC-50 noise canceling headset for this PC based demonstration. Speak about 1/2 to 1" away from the microphone at a 90 degree angle to avoid breathing into the microphone.
The Andrea NC-50 Noise Cancelling Headset can be purchased from our online store, or directly from this page by clicking the button below.
For embedded hardware applications, we have selected a compact, VERY high-quality microphone which operates on 2-10 VDC current. These microphones are made in the USA and exhibit superior frequency characteristics. They are unique since they provide a full spectrum of speech even when the distance from the microphone is increased. They are only about the size of an LED and fit just about anywhere. We have yet to find a better microphone at any price.
For this demonstration to perform optimally, you'll need a microphone capable of capturing clear vowel sounds without clipping, distortion, or significant background noise. We also have hardware based demonstrations available on our custom hardware prototypes page.
