Taking Play Seriously

The days of complex menus and clunky controllers are over. Generation Alpha kids are looking for more natural and immersive experiences using their voices to perform searches, chat with their toys and control their XR adventures.

Our proprietary speech recognition software offers clients a suite of low-code, lightweight and custom solutions that deliver private and age-appropriate voice experiences for kids of all ages and accents.

Online

Our online solutions, where children’s voice data goes to the cloud for processing, are fully COPPA and GDPR-K compliant.

Offline

When kids don’t need internet access to interact with their games, toys and robots, all voice data can remain “on device” for enhanced privacy.

Embedded

Our embedded offline voice solutions work at high accuracy on a range of embedded chips with cost profiles that resonate for our Play customers.

Playing Your Way

SoapBox Play solutions are changing how kids interact with their games, apps and smart toys by offering them more natural and friction-free experiences that are also fast, powerful and intuitive.

Custom Wakewords

This first-of-its-kind Wakeword solution built specifically for kids’ voices and behaviors allows kids to activate dormant devices using custom words or phrases.

Voice Activity Detection (VAD)

Our VAD feature automatically detects when a child intends to engage, or begins to speak, and opens the microphone to listen at that point only. 

Control

Up, down, left, right! Our Control feature gives kids complete control over their offline and digital experiences using their voices.

Search

Our Search feature allows kids to quickly and easily find what they’re looking for and to experience it through the medium of their preference.

Conversation

Our Conversation feature enables scaffolded dialogue to power conversations between kids and their favorite offline and digital characters.
