Voice Recognition for Your Xerox AltaLink Multifunction Printer

By Sarah Vollo, Global Marketing Manager, Solutions and Apps Offerings

The full name is Global Artificial Business Intelligence, but you can call it Gabi® Voice. It allows you to give a verbal command to your Xerox AltaLink MFP, and execute your command seamlessly. Currently, Gabi Voice is available only in the U.S. market.

Our partner, Gabi Solutions, developed Gabi Voice to support section 508c of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which governs accessibility of information technology in the U.S. federal government. This means that workers of all abilities will be able to use several functions on your AltaLink MFP simply by stating the wake-up word, “Gabi,” followed by an intuitive command – regardless of visual impairments, learning disabilities, or limited motor skills. Just about anyone in your workforce will be able use Gabi Voice with minimal training.

Tell your MFP to copy, scan to email, fax, print securely, or to initiate a service request. This video shows you how:

Voice recognition improves productivity

No need for manuals, icons or menus. Voice commands save time because they are intuitive and can be spoken in any order without clicking through multiple menus. For example, the command “Gabi, make 10 copies black and white double sided” or “Gabi, make 10 copies double sided black and white” is interpreted the same.

Intuitive voice recognition complies with federal 508c regulations

Gabi Voice complies with federal 508c regulations and guidelines for technology that helps people with disabilities, such as blindness, low vision or limited dexterity. The voice-activated user interface uses natural language input and adapts to variances based on user speech patterns, such as accents or speech impediments, which makes Gabi Voice useful for everyone who uses the MFP. When Gabi Voice detects a command, it uses a corresponding set of machine-executable actions from a whitelist of known functions. Gabi Voice will only perform actions that have been pre-programmed.

Initiate a service request

If your AltaLink needs service, tell Gabi to initiate a service request. It will gather the pertinent service information from your MFP (such as the serial number), and generate an email to your service provider. Consult with your sales representative on this function to confirm that your service provider can take advantage of this capability.

DIY hardware installation

“Do it yourself” installation means you don’t need technical experience to install Gabi Voice. The hardware uses a 5.1 volt micro USB power adapter that is UL approved, and it is covered by Gabi Solutions’ warranty for one year. The kit includes:

  • 1-to-1 Gabi Smartbox: An Ethernet/USB/Bluetooth equipped micro-controller that communicates directly with your AltaLink MFP.
  • Speaker: An on-premises dedicated and integrated microphone/speaker that helps you talk to your MFP. A USB connects the speaker directly to the Gabi Smartbox.
