Voices of pangea: 120 languages supported in voice and video question types in questfox for real-time transcription

pangea or pangaea?

The questfox development is managed by the Swiss company pangea labs. The idea of “pangea” was developed by the German researcher Alfred Wegener who described in this work “The Origin of Continents” (1912) the idea of a supercontinent, in times when all continents have been one.

Our company was called pangea labs after a project in 120 countries after which we reconsidered our business figuring that our mission was to bring all people on this now different planet back together again with software tools. This happened in 2006 in just one language which was English.

We are more than proud to announce a real pangea feature with the implementation of a set of 120 languages and variants of languages inside of questfox from now on. It is now possible to interview using the voice of the customer in the languages described underneath. questfox will be able to generate a text transcript from the selected language.

120 speech variants ready to be used in questfox

A user can select from a list of the following variants of a language. We know that this is a major step for the development of market research. We are aware of the fact that now everyone will be able to use that technology yet, but our mission is to support the planet with these kinds of tools to re-create the supercontinent on the basis of software.

The integrated languages are available for Voice and even video question types. The text-to-speech reading features are not yet supported.

Using speech in research still requires some technical tests upfront, but is a fantastic new feature and broadens the opportunities of research. We will continuously work on these feature sets and support the world with more and more pangea ideas soon.

How to analyze speech?

The voice of a person is transcribed into written text in questfox. As an option you can save the spoken word as an audio file. At the moment questfox will only offer you a look at the data but is not providing any specific analytic tools for voice or text. Little by little we develop these analytic parts together with software partners specialized in that field of research. Over time more and more partners will be able to offer analytic tools in their specific language. That is the return of the supercontinent pangea.
