With microphones and audio technology from the Fraunhofer IDMT in Oldenburg: The Telekom Smart Speaker starts selling at IFA 2019

To develop the Smart Speaker, Fraunhofer IDMT’s Hearing, Speech and Audio Technology division cooperated with Deutsche Telekom in a dependable partnership. From the brainstorming and initial demonstrators to the acoustic self-test of the device for end-of-line control, the Oldenburg division contributed its expertise and innovative technologies.
