From Locus Dialogue to Nu Echo: Speech recognition, a CRIM expertise for more than 30 years


In the 1990s, CRIM started developing a speech recognition technology that would soon place it among the world leaders in the field. As soon as 1992, experts from CRIM were taking part in international competitions and technological evaluations.

From the creation of its first Speech Recognition Team to the foundation of Locus Dialogue and Nu Echo, CRIM's expertise has made it a key player that still offers cutting-edge technological tools to various clients in Canada and around the world.
