Small Emerging Tech Company Sells Voice Recognition Patents to Google

Posted by:

SR Tech Group, LLC, a privately held small virtual company which focuses on the development of emerging technology, computer software, and speech recognition, announced this week that it sold a patent portfolio of voice recognition technology to Google. The portfolio included U.S. Patent No. 7,742,922 entitled "Speech Interface for Search Engines," and U.S. Patent No. 8,056,070 entitled "System and Method for Modifying and Updating a Speech Recognition Program." The terms and details of the transaction were not released.

This new transaction will compliment Google's patent portfolio of nearly 50,000 patents worldwide. Google has been investing in speech recognition technology for quite some time now, with "conversational speech" already implemented on many of its mobile devices.
