BabbleLabs has just launched broad production availability of our commercial speech API, web service, and phone mobile apps for iPhone and Android. These services clean up video and audio recordings to make the speech much easier to understand. The apps work on existing videos as well as new audio and video recorded inside the app. In either case, simply select the item you want to enhance and the app strips out virtually all of the background noise. You can then choose to post or share the enhanced content, or keep it just for yourself. It’s fun to experiment — download the app for free and process your first 125 minutes of video or 250 minutes of audio at no cost — that amount will last most users for a long time. Rest assured, the apps are completely private; they never store anything in the cloud or share anything with BabbleLabs.You can download the apps here:
