Speechlab is an early-stage startup that is seeking to make the world more accessible by building a new platform for automated speech translation. Despite substantial progress with speech and translation technologies, AI-based solutions for speech interpretation are still inelegant and expensive and significantly lag human level performance. Speechlab is addressing these shortcomings through an integrated web service for automated dubbing that retains the context, including timing, speaker voice, and tone of the source audio and video in a new target language. Speechlab's founders have successfully launched and built category defining products in the speech technology sector.
