Picovoice achieves cloud-level accuracy with tiny Speech-to-Text models, addressing privacy, cost, and reliability problems of the $30 Billion transcription market. Efficient AI models that can run anywhere bring the control back to enterprises and are 10x more cost-effective. Anyone can transcribe 100 hours of audio per month using Picovoice's Free Tier.
Picovoice Speech-to-Text (STT) is private-by-design and 10x to 22x more cost-effective compared to cloud-based automatic speech recognition APIs. Picovoice on-device STT is intrinsically private and eliminates the cloud costs by bringing compute to data, instead of transmitting data to the cloud.

STT engines can be customized on Picovoice Console to boost accuracy even more. For example, while a medical device company can customize the model with medical terms, a media company can do it with celebrity names on Picovoice Console.
Enterprises can choose Leopard for non-streaming use cases and Cheetah for real-time transcription. The Starter Tier for up to 10,000 hours costs $999/month and gives enterprises access to both of the engines. Customers with a volume above 10,000 hours per month can contact sales for custom quotes.
