Voiceitt, a commercial speech recognition technology, raised an additional $10 million in a Series A funding round.
Investors include Viking Maccabee Ventures, Microsoft’s M12, AMIT Technion, Cahn Capital Corp, Connecticut Innovations, AARP, Quake Capital, SLJ Family Office, Dreamit Ventures, and The Disability Opportunity Fund.
Including the latest funding round, Voiceitt has raised over $15 million to date. The company plans to use the new funds to further build its speech recognition technology.
The Voiceitt speech recognition application translates unintelligible and atypical speech in real-time, enabling people with severe speech impairments to communicate by voice. The company participated in the Alexa Accelerator, powered by Techstars in Seattle in 2018 and is an Amazon Alexa Fund portfolio company.
“Voiceitt provides a new dimension of independence and quality of life for people with speech and motor disabilities, and a compelling tool for those who care for and about them. Our technology helps with this and much more,” said Danny Weissberg, CEO & Co-Founder.
“With the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, our objectives are not only to support the individual’s in-person communication, but also to assist healthcare professionals and support the continuum of care for their patients.”
Voiceitt works with healthcare providers, speech and occupational therapists, researchers, and disability organizations in the United States and Europe.
