Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Growth Opportunities in the European Hosted IP Telephony and UCaaS Market, Forecast to 2026, finds that the European hosted Internet Protocol (IP) telephony and Unified Communications-as-a-Service (UCaaS) market will experience slower-than-anticipated growth in terms of both users and revenue in 2020 and 2021 due to churn in the installed base and reduced new user acquisitions.

Ukrainian programmers have developed a device in the shape of a pendant that can record your voice and transcribe it into a text file. Roselle Chen reports.
LVIV, UKRAINE / VARIOUS LOCATIONS, UNITED STATES (REUTERS / SENSTONE INC) – This little pendant packs a lot of punch by making it possible to convert your ideas into text.
Senstone was devised by programmers in the Ukrainian cities of Lviv and Kiev and transforms the user’s voice into notes stored on their phone or tablet.
SENSTONE INC CO-FOUNDER AND CEO, NAZAR FEDORCHUK,
“It’s relatively small. It records your voice once you tap it and converts it into text notes. The good thing about it – it can work anywhere, you can do it on the go while walking, driving, hiking, when your hands are busy or in any other situation.”
SENSTONE DESIGNER, YURIY KYRYLIV,
“Senstone is a sort of alien’s stone which records your thoughts and saves the moment when an idea comes to you and you have a short amount of time to write it down.”
Users press a button, and a series of tiny LEDs flash to indicate that recording is taking place.
Pressing the button again stops the recording.
An app on the user’s phone will sync with the Senstone automatically via Bluetooth.
The sound files are downloaded and speech is automatically transcribed.
The device recognizes twelve languages, including Ukrainian and English.
A Kickstarter campaign that ran to the end of February easily raised the required $50,000 (USD) funding.
