——A leader in Chinese speech industry

IFLYTEK CO.,LTD.(iFLYTEK)is a national key software enterprise dedicated to the research of intelligent speech and language technologies, development of software and chip products, provision of speech information services, and integration of E-government systems. The intelligent speech technology of iFLYTEK, the core technology of the company, represents the top level in the world.

Established in 1999, iFLYTEK was listed in the Shenzhen Stock Exchange in 2008 (stock code: 002230). With vigorous support from major shareholders including USTC Holdings Co., Ltd., Shanghai Guangxin, and Legend Capital, iFLYTEK boasts the longest fundamental research history, the largest professional research team, the greatest capital investment, the best evaluation results, and the largest market share among all business entities in the speech technology field in China.

The speech technologies, comprising mainly speech synthesis and speech recognition, aim to enable human-machine speech communication as convenient as human-human communication. The speech synthesis technology enables a machine to talk and the speech recognition technology enables a machine to hear. In addition, the speech technologies also include oral language evaluation, speech coding, timbre transformation, noise reduction and speech enhancement technologies, which will have a great application prospect.

As a leading provider of intelligent speech technology, iFLYTEK has achieved the international advanced results in many core technologies including speech synthesis, speech recognition, oral language evaluation, and natural language processing. Appointed by the Ministry of Information Industry of China, iFLYTEK is now leading the work group to set up the Chinese speech technology standard.
