This creates a great opportunity for speech, allowing speech-based applications to take advantage of the data network to perform advanced speech processing on network-based servers rather than on the device itself. With network-based speech recognition, the audio is collected on the device by the application, and transmitted across the data network to specialized servers that perform transcription of audio to text and then sends the text back to the device. With network-based text-to-speech, the text is sent to servers and converted to audio which is streamed back to the device.
