TRANSCRIVOX is software based on Automatic Natural Language Processing (speech recognition and synthesis), artificial intelligence and multimedia content management. It also contains a unique application for the transformation of speech into diagram form. TRANSCRIVOX is independent from the speaker and will function in several languages.
TRANSCRIVOX note taking is three easy and straightforward steps:
1- The user opens TRANSCRIVOX from a smartphone and records the speaker (a teacher, colleague or trainer, etc), and films the multimedia elements (images, scenes,…) : This is the ‘Capture’ step.
2 – Next, the user transfers the ‘capture’ to the TRANSCRIVOX servers via the user’s personal profile : This is the ‘Transfer’ step.
3- Finally, by entering a sentence or key words, the user accesses the information needed, quickly and easily, via the Cloud, using a smartphone, tablet, or any computer : This is the ‘Find’ step.
TTM : Text to Map
The user will benefit from a unique and valuable additional tool; the transformation of the speaker’s words into a mindmap (Text to Map)! This function is also very useful for checking that the multimedia file found by TRANSCRIVOX contains the information required, after the analysis of the user’s request. It can also be used to glance through the contents of several multimedia documents.
Using TRANSCRIVOX, your attention can be fully concentrated on the speaker, without having to take notes. The days of scrawling pen and paper notes and touch typing are over! TRANSCRIVOX takes notes for you and liberates you to pay attention to the speaker.
Imagine your life as student with TRANSCRIVOX (and we are all students for life)! If you know how to use a smartphone, tablet or PC then you will surely be able to use TRANSCRIVOX with ease!
TRANSCRIVOX can be used by anyone! Anyone who needs to do any form of note taking; students, board members, symposium or conference attendees, cooking class participants, and, of course, any person whose learning difference compels them to use a remedial solution (for example people with dyslexia, low or no vision or hearing).
Additional notes for the fixed ‘TranscriVox Dys’ application for education providers:
What makes the TRANSCRIVOX Dys application stand out from the rest is that it turns on their heads the traditional methods of equipping people with learning differences. Until now, it has always been the person in difficulty who has been singled out to be equipped with assistive technology. A student with dyslexia, for example, needing to take notes, would need specific assistive material. Now, with TRANSCRIVOX Dys, the education provider and the instructor would be equipped and would guarantee accessibility to the contents of the lesson to the whole class.
What do you get out of TRANSCRIVOX Dys?
Teachers: automatic note taking will allow them to teach naturally, without making any adaptation to the lesson.
Students: the software lets them concentrate on the instructor, without having to worry about taking notes! They can also use their Medialexie tools to do their written work!
Education providers: by using the automatic note taking system, and education provider offers an efficient tool, that is at the height of technology, to all their students!
TRANSCRIVOX specifically for ‘differences’
If our donators support us, we can develop a specific version of the application for people with low or no vision, as well as one for people with low or no hearing.
TRANSCRIVOX for people with hearing impairments
This is the basic version of TRANSCRIVOX with additional automatic subtitling in sign language text.
TRANSCRIVOX for people with low or no vision
This is the basic version of TRANSCRIVOX with additional transcription of text to speech using speech synthesis and a braille keyboard.
TRANSCRIVOX Pro for professionnals
TRANSCRIVOX Pro is the professional version for all, dedicated to those who spend much of their time in meetings.

Our founder’s Team: Gilles, Joe, Mike and Dom:
Gilles Vessière, co-founder of TRANSCRIVOX:
The early 2000s marked a turning point in Mr. Vessiere’s professional activities. During the 90s he consecrated his work to the realization of avant-garde yet practical applications made with linguistic engineering technology (the conjunction of IT and linguistics).
With his pioneering team of engineers and linguists in France, he developed the very first industrial versions of the automatic switchboard, information and transaction servers, and personal assistants; all of which work with voice recognition and voice synthesis within communication networks. These innovations were recognized by numerous awards and trophies. This was a watershed moment that marked radical change in direction.
From then on his goal would be to use Natural Language Processing technology to help people with communication difficulties. So, in January 2000 Mr. Vessiere entered an annual competition held by the French Ministry of Industry and Research in order to find the funds necessary to start up his project (ANVAR/OSEO). He won the competition, and spent the next year studying specific language impairments, with the help of his wife, who is a special needs teacher for the French National Education Department. Disregarding expert opinion that it is impossible to use Natural Language Processing to help people with dyslexia, Mr. Vessiere founded MEDIALEXIE on the university technological platform within an engineering school, in January 2003. Within very little time, the young company deposed two patents.
Now the innovation continues, with TRANSCRIVOX!
Joël Bachelerie, co-founder of TRANSCRIVOX:
After studying at one of France’s highly regarded schools of Information Technology , Joel Bachelorie joined the Medialexie team at the head of the IT research and development unit. Joel took part in the development of numerous applications, which are now regarded as veritable technological and pedagogical advances.
He is the co-author of a patent that permits the transformation of highly disorthographic, but phonetically correct text into standard spelling, independent of language. He is an expert in Automatic Natural Language Processing, and the software solutions he develops aim to provide every day help to people who struggle with reading and writing.
Joel believes that software should be reliable and easy to use, which is why TRANSCRIVOX, which is based on that ideal, will be accessible to one and all.
Mike Nopere, co-founder of TRANSCRIVOX:
Mike Nopere is an Internet Specialist. More than ten years’ of experience at the highest level have made him a master of web 2.0 web technologies.
Before joining the team of MEDIALEXIE as Web developer and network architect, and to participate in the development of TRANSCRIVOX, he worked with one of the world’s leading online gaming companies, a site with more than 30 million members. At the time he was responsible for network architecture, data warehouse and cloud computing, as well as web development optimization.
Dominique Warzecha, co-founder of TRANSCRIVOX:
In charge of evaluations (ergonomic).
We, the founders of the TRANSCRIVOX Start-up have been collaborating together for several years within an enterprise dedicated to learning differences and the development of remediation applications. We design and develop assistive technology software using Automatic Natural Language Processing (computational linguistics) and A.I (artificial intelligence).
Our current goal with this start-up, is to create computational linguistic applications for the general public; students, professionals and non-professionals of all ages. We also intend for all these applications function on mobile technology, accessible to all, via smartphones and tablets over the Cloud.
We don’t want to abandon our work in applications for people with specific needs, so we are also aiming at developing specific versions designed for education providers or specialised structures. Once again, that version of TRANSCRIVOX will be of benefit to everyone!
Lend us a hand!
Transcrivox will make your life easier, as well as the lives of many other people! Be a part of making it happen!
TRANSCRIVOX: technology’s best, for one and all! Help us to help you!
