Need a voice solutions, choose best voice API providers

Published

on

A mobile app is said to be good if it is built for a unique purpose, has easy to use features, and state of the art technology. But, this isn’t sufficient today as many competitors are in the market. Your idea and selection of features may be the right integrations but you need to add something more. Adding voice API is the new on-demand feature of a mobile app. Today, many tough competitors are using such solutions which are affordable as well. Want to learn about voice API? Here is a guide to it.

What is voice API?

It is a tool that developers use to make calls handling easy with an API. It acts as a bridge between the PSTN and applications that run on internet. Earlier, making a call was not possible using internet but the technology has made it possible now. Now, a voice API can be used to build voice calling applications without using the traditional PSTN. Programming them is easy and one doesn’t need any specialization in hardware and telecommunication knowledge. 

Developers can build a logic that can be used on any device and any network. Users can make call without using the traditional PSTN to make and receive calls using VoIP functionality. This is possible only on internet. This gives flexibility to developer to have full control over application. They need not to have buy expensive systems or go deep into complex protocols for call handling. 

Voice API capabilities

A voice API let you do following things:

  • Text to speech services 
  • Call tracking 
  • Recording and transcription services 
  • Control call routing 
  • Detailed call records
  • SDK and developer resources

Do you really need voice API?

Yes, you need and here are the reasons why. The mobile apps without such integrations are nothing just phones without a SIM. VoIP services have become the backbone of a mobile app where a service provider and user can easily communicate. Such integrations are useful for everyone whoever is connected to the app and enhances their overall experiences. Almost all service provides, admin and customers get benefit from it. However, it is not mandatory to integration voice solutions to a mobile app but few good reasons will make you understand why it is useful.

  • Verification calls and OTP- verification is pretty essential at the time any user signs up with your application. Voice APIs are handy to carry out these verifications efficiently.
  • Calling and texting– there should be a way by which easy communication between services providerand customer can be done. This requirement is fulfilled by integrating voice solutions to the android or iOS app.
  • Trigger based notifications-today; notifications play a vital role as they deliver every-step information to the customers. The journey of their order is notified to the customer right from the start to the dispatch and delivery through notifications. SMS and voice APIs can navigate this real time information to the customers via app.
  • Number masking– number masking is essential when a customer want to get in touch with the service provider or vice versa. This is to protect the privacy of the customer. Voice APIs are best way to enable this interaction whilst providing privacy safety from the app where no private information about the customer is revealed.
  • Broadcast messages– special announcement can be made to the number of customers using SMS and voice APIs. 
  • Cost-effective– the voice based solutions are cost-effective as no significant cost is involved in installation of hardware. This reduces the cost on outbound calls to 35 percent if it is used in combination with SIP trunking.
  • Quality calls– the natural rhythm while making call can be broken by latency but a voice API ensures that all the calls offer clear audio and natural rhythm. It routes the call to any other data center of the world which is nearest to the user thus maintaining the quality of call.
  • New communication lines– voice APIs offer new lines of communication to the user thus ensuring continuous communication without any breaks. It offers communication lines such as VoIP calling, SIP, embed PSTN into the site, service or app site.

So, now you understand why a voice API is the best solution for your application and business. The question that now persists is how to choose. Here are few things that matter when making a choice.

Things that matter for API selection

Look at first few things that are highly essential such as:

  • Pricing- it is not true that an expensive solution is the best one always. The cheaper option is sometimes that you need. Well, don’t just go straight with the price, check for the requirements before you finally decide for the price.
  • Reliability– you should check out the reviews to know how reliable the provider is. 
  • Availability- you should check for the geographic coverage within your country. This point can limit your choices as few APIs don’t have wide coverage. 
  • Delivery reports- this is not obligatory however having a delivery report about the services will give you some pieces of information that will help you in analysis.
  • Integration – the last point is again a matter of consideration. You should know you can the voice API be integrated with the application. 

Voice APIs are no doubt simple, fast and well tested ways for appending communication and other useful features into the applications but it should be reliable and stable as well. A 24×7 customer support is also necessary to experience good service every time. 

Choose a provider that offers no service interruptions and offers the connectivity round the clock. Also, make sure that they are trustworthy as your data is in their hand. They should make your data safe and secure. Check for the communication providers to have ISO27001, SOC2, and GDPR which are established standards for communication. They should also have a sound fraud prevention policy along with a monitoring method of applications to prevent the customer’s data from attacks.

Choose the leading providers of cloud communication for voicebased solutions for your business.

Let’s talk About 5G: How To Protect Yourself

Published

on

I started a series about the effects of 5G and Tinnitus. Then I discussed electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (EMRFR) and Skin Tightening and more on it all. However, what good is discussing the subject unless there are solutions? Here are some products that can help stop the madness.

One of the best company’s out there is DefenderShield® with phone cases to shield, Radiation Protection Shielding Scarfs, EMF & 5G Radiation Shielding Blankets, EMF Radiation-Free Earbuds Air Tube Stereo Headphones and so much more.

At Lambs get the world’s first Radiation-Proof Apparel that block 99% of EMF.

From the inception Aires’s main goal was to find a way to minimize harm to the body without impacting the capability of electronic devices. Rather than block or absorb radiation, they wanted to create a surrounding area free from the harm of EMF. There products use holographic technology.You can use their devices in a multitude of ways.

Vacuum Sealed 5G Blocking Fabric Military Grade Shielding from Signals & Radiation, Using Faraday material.

Smart Meter Guard Cover EMF Shield Blocks EMF and 5G. Invented in the USA.

The C-band 5G Interference Solution helps with the onset of 5G. With a  need for specialized products to block or prevent interference from 5G base stations in proximity of C-band ground terminals. Norsat’s solution comprises of interference suppression C-Band LNBs and specialized bandpass filters for effective satellite communication. Traditionally, C-band is used for satellite services, radar, and microwave links; however, with the terrestrial wireless industry’s planned introduction of new mobile phone networks such as LTE, Wi-Max, and 5G, these C-band frequencies will now be shared amongst a wider range of services. The interference signals are powerful enough to saturate the sensitive C-band satellite receiving systems, causing a potential for total loss of service.

There are many products out there if you do your research that help combat this problem. It is expensive, but isn’t your health worth it? Preventive medicine and preventive care in the long run is worth your time and effort.

Let’s Talk About 5G: EMRFR

Published

on

I started this series yesterday about the effects of 5G and Tinnitus. Today we are going to discuss electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (EMRFR)

With the rapid development of technical achievements, the consequences of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) have become a new pollution for modern civilization. In many studies the biological interaction of EMR with human organs, especially the brain have shown that the nervous system is highly sensitive to EMR. The neurobiological effects of EMR, on the metabolism and transport of neurotransmitters plays a critical roles in cognitive and emotional behavior.

EMR produces various electromagnetic waves of different frequencies, resulting in the increasing EMR intensity in human living spaces. The high-frequency waves such as cosmic, gamma and X-rays, have enough energy to cause ionization. Non-ionizing electromagnetic waves, including ultraviolet, visible region, infrared, microwave, and radio waves are frequently used in daily life, especially radio frequency electromagnetic fields for communications, and extremely low-frequency EMFs generated by electricity. RF is also commonly referred to as microwave radiation. The impact of EMR on human health has also attracted attention, and the modulation of brain functional connectivity was observed in human body.

The effects of EMR on body systems depends on the frequency, intensity and power of radiation. Numerous studies have shown that the nervous system is targeted organ system sensitive to EMR. Exposure to electromagnetic fields can cause structural and functional changes in the nervous system. Our dopamine level is rendered inactivated, our neurons can no longer communicate with each other, so disorders, such as depression, schizophrenia, Alzheimer disease, and Parkinson disease are heightened.

Possible symptoms related to EMFs include:

  • headache
  • sleep disturbances, including insomnia
  • depression and depressive symptoms
  • tiredness and fatigue
  • dysesthesia (a painful, often itchy sensation)
  • lack of concentration
  • changes in memory
  • dizziness
  • irritability
  • loss of appetite and weight loss
  • restlessness and anxiety
  • nausea
  • skin burning and tingling
  • tremor
  • memory loss

EMF Exposures all of which are “regulated by our government:

  • Electronic devices.
  • Cell phones.
  • Televisions and computer screens
  • Smart meters.
  • Power lines.
  • Medical use. Many medical devices and procedures use ionizing radiation to diagnose and treat conditions and disease. I just want to point out that you wear a shield to get a x-ray and you can not do them if pregnant.
  • Nuclear power.

Let’s Talk About 5G: Tinnitus

Published

on

I am about to start a series of articles on the effects of 5G and what we are not being told. Somehow we have allowed something that is so insidious into our lives, embracing it wholeheartedly, as it is slowly killing us inch by inch. We need to be able to see the research that is being hidden from our eyes and our computer screens. Being armed is being for warned.

Right now more than 50 million people have  Tinnitus now in the US. Children at this point also have tinnitus, which may improve or even go away over time, but in most cases, the symptoms worsens with time. When tinnitus lasts for three months or longer, it is considered chronic. Tinnitus means that you hear phantom sounds in one ear, or in both ears, and in your head. These sounds may ring, buzz, roar, whistle, hum, click, hiss, or squeal. They may be soft, loud, low or high pitched. The sounds may come and go or be present all the time. Sometimes, moving your head, neck, or eyes, or touching certain parts of your body may produce tinnitus symptoms or temporarily change the quality of the perceived sound.

Tinnitus has increased over the past decade. Many are saying that the increase use of cell phones has exposed the peripheral auditory pathways to a higher dose of electromagnetic radio frequency radiation (EMRFR). Some tinnitus patients report that the abusive use of mobiles, especially when repeated in the same ear, worsen ipsilateral tinnitus. Some individuals are more sensitive to electromagnetic exposure (electrosensitivity), and thus, present earlier symptoms. There seems to be a common pathophysiology between this electrosensitivity and tinnitus.

It has been shown that slow-frequency radiation (ELF) in short-term exposure has caused headache, fatigue, tinnitus, concentration problems, depression, memory loss, skin irritation, sleep disorders, nausea, cardiovascular effects, chest pain, immunity, and hormonal disorders in humans, whereas long-term exposure to EMR leads to the development of cancer. The EMR exposure induces reactive oxygen species and changes the fidelity of genes involved in signal transduction, cytoskeleton formation, and cellular metabolism.

Here are research articles that prove this fact.

3 Tech Innovations Elevating Our Digital Entertainment Experience

Published

on

By

From a silent film that captivated audiences on silver screens to live broadcasts connecting us across continents, technology has been the maestro orchestrating the symphony of entertainment evolution. Consider the advent of colour television, which paints our viewing experiences with a vibrant palette, or streaming services like Netflix, Disney Prime, and Hulu. Such trends, amongst several others, are indeed groundbreaking tech innovations that brought a sea change to traditional amusement landscapes. As we stand on the cusp of another transformation, this article sheds light on the innovations amplifying our digital experiences.

Join us as we delve into the multifaceted world of tomorrow’s entertainment.

Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR)

Augmented Reality introduces digital elements into our tangible world, enhancing visual and auditory sensations. Think of it like those Snapchat filters that superimpose dog ears or dancing animations onto a user’s face but in a more sophisticated manner. On the other hand, Virtual Reality transports users into fabricated realms, allowing for a total escape. It’s as if you put on a headset and instantly find yourself standing atop a mountain or wandering in a mythical land, fully immersed in that setting.

Pokemon Go’s rise demonstrated the potential of blending virtual characters with real-world locations, turning neighbourhoods into arenas of discovery. While capturing creatures is one facet, the real magic lies in changing our perspective of our environment. On the immersive spectrum’s other end, Oculus Rift provides participants with unprecedented experiences, from epic quests to captivating tales.

So, what places AR and VR at the forefront of entertainment’s technical evolution? They bridge the gap between digital narratives and human perception. Everyday settings become dynamic stages with Augmented Reality, transforming a stroll in the park into a quest or adventure. Meanwhile, Virtual Reality crafts doorways to spaces once restricted to dreams – places and activities like taking a walk on the moon or diving deep under the sea without leaving your couch. That’s the charm of VR. Their inherent immersive quality heightens engagement and ensures a deep emotional resonance that lingers.

Peering into the future, the horizon for these platforms in leisure is pretty expansive. Picture theatre performances enhanced with holographic sequences or narratives where observers evolve into protagonists. As tools grow and innovators push boundaries, they promise profound shifts in entertainment dynamics.

Artificial Intelligence’s  (AI) Multifaceted Role in Personalizing Digital Experiences

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are the architects behind the curtain of digital content recommendation, meticulously crafting user experiences across various platforms. Services like Netflix and Spotify harness these technologies to analyse user behaviour, capturing nuances in preferences to suggest films or music, thereby creating a bespoke entertainment journey for each user.

In the online casino world, AI suggestions can adapt to each player’s actions, the games they frequent, the stakes they wager, as well as other in-game decisions. As time passes, akin to an expert dealer familiar with patrons’ preferences, the system refines its recommendations, ensuring the games it proposes align with the player’s past choices and patterns, thus advancing the online casino experience to unprecedented personalised levels.

This personalisation gets further elevated when AI converges with Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, especially in live casinos. Much like AI curates a movie or a music playlist for you, it enhances the gaming experience, with OCR acting as its visual conduit. Together, they forge a dynamic gaming environment where players can enjoy live dealer titles or play keno online, with suggestions that adapt to their in-game decisions. OCR technology diligently captures each shuffle and spin, converting these physical actions into digital data.

Digital Wallets

With the digital landscape evolving swiftly, the need for user-centric technologies has never been more precise. Digital wallets, in particular, are changing the dynamics of online transactions.

They act as virtual storehouses crafted to consolidate an individual’s financial details, signifying the forthcoming phase in the evolution of monetary exchanges. Through them, users can swiftly manage, transfer, and receive funds without the traditional hindrances of physical currency or banking delays.

Diving deeper into their world, let’s explore some of their pivotal features and impacts:

  • Unmatched Convenience:
    • Eliminates manual card input.
    • Streamlines purchasing and subscription processes.
    • Transforms minutes-long tasks into instant actions.
