Ramya Priya Updated by Ramya Priya

We are increasingly using personal assistants on our phones to accomplish various tasks through natural conversations. Similarly, you can get answers to your business-related questions via Tellius Assistant.

Using Tellius Assistant, you can communicate in natural language (similar to Google search) to get answers to complex questions. It guides you by building suitable queries for the next valid component.

  • The questions can be in text form or voice form.
  • Build up the conversation with follow-up questions and drill down to get the necessary insights.
  • Tellius Assistant proactively suggests relevant questions and filters based on the selected Business View.
  • All the multiple questions entered will be stored in the chat history.

Once you enable the talkback feature and choose male/female voice as required, Tellius Assistant will respond to your questions in voice format. In addition to the text format responses, Tellius Assistant speaks out the responses using the text-to-speech mode.

The mic (in the rightmost corner) can be enabled, and you can ask your questions through the mic. With the help of Active Speech Recognition (ASR), Tellius Assistant interprets every word in your queries and provides suitable responses in voice and text format.
