English term or phrase:coolness factor
Commands and call placement are done through voice commands issued to the Vocera badge (e.g., Call Frank Bulk). Vocera licenses voice-recognition technology from Nuance Communications. The voice recognition adds to the coolness factor of the devices, but also represents an Achilles' heel. There's no question that voice response has improved significantly in recent years, and Vocera has done a credible job of exploiting its power. However, since the voice commands themselves are digitized and sent over the wireless network to the server's speech-recognition engine (an 8-Kbps codec is used during conversation, but a full 64 Kbps is used to get the best quality when using voice commands), high packet loss and high background noise can cause the system to have trouble processing voice commands.
