Yap Speech Cloud was a multimodal speech recognition system developed by American technology company Yap Inc. It offered a fully cloud-based speech-to-text transcription platform that was used by customers such as Microsoft.[1]

The Company was a contestant at the inaugural TechCrunch conference[2] and was subsequently acquired by Amazon in September 2011[3] to help develop products such as Alexa Voice Service, Echo,[4] and Fire TV.
