SoapBox Labs is a kids first, privacy first company.
From the very beginning, we invested in a privacy-by-design approach to our data and technology in order to protect kids’ voice data completely.
SoapBox is fully compliant with relevant data privacy and data protection regulations (COPPA, FERPA and GDPR).
SoapBox Labs is an independent company which means that we have no competing business models outside of speech recognition and we remain laser focused on one mission – to develop and deliver the world’s most accurate and privacy-driven voice technology for kids. As part of our privacy-by-design approach, we commit that our kids’ voice data will never be shared or sold to third parties, and will never be used to support other business models such as marketing and advertising.
In May 2019, SoapBox Labs collaborated with thought leader and anthropologist Dr. Veronica Barassi on this submission to the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Download our submission here.
“It wasn’t faster or cheaper to design-in privacy, but as a deep tech, kid focused company, success for SoapBox Labs meant, respecting every kid’s fundamental right to privacy.”

(Founder & CEO)
In February 2020, our COO Dr. Martyn Farrows published this guest post in Voicebot, the leading voice industry publication.
SoapBox Labs continues to advocate for the adoption of a privacy-by-design approach by all players in the voice technology industry through blog posts, talks and articles.
