Speech technology: VoiceKey OnePass Offers Touchless Bimodal Biometrics for Smartphones

A year after voice biometrics solution provider SpeechPro debuted Voice Key OnePass, the company has released a hands-free version of the solution.

"We are taking this to the next level," says Alexey Khitrov, president of SpeechPro USA, a division of Russia's Speech Technology Center. "We've added a number of features to the app that makes the process completely touchless. In the previous version you had to touch the phone to start the biometrics process."

The app also features a unique anti-spoofing verification method to prevent fraudsters from beating the system with photographs.
