Voiceitt
Smart home devices sometimes do not understand people with non-standard speech, but Voiceitt does. Designed for a large spectrum of speech impairments, Voiceitt’s machine learning adapts to your speech, so you can use your smart home device or assistant knowing you’ll be understood. Voiceitt integrates with your Alexa or connects with your favorite smart home devices, so you can control your smart home with your voice. Train commands, so they’re ready to use when you want to play your favorite songs, check the news, or turn on the lights.
