Abstract

Recently there has been an increase in decentralized teams due to globalization and advances in mobile technology. Distributed teams communicating via a mobile platform cause a tremendous increase in wireless communication, and in order for this to be managed it is critical to avoid unnecessary bandwidth use. However, mobile clients often lack in processing power and battery life when handling speech data. Thus it is crucial to carefully balance client side processing versus server side processing. One option is sending a feed of the user's voice to a server where it is converted to text. Alternatively the mobile device can convert the user's speech to text and send that text to a server. Virtual facilitation software for distributed teams requires real time transcription of conversations and thus would tremendously benefit from optimal balancing of client-server side processing.
