iSCAN

Ha Trinh, Annalu Waller, Keith Vertanen, Per Ola Kristensson, Vicki L. Hanson
2012 Proceedings of the 14th international ACM SIGACCESS conference on Computers and accessibility - ASSETS '12  
We have developed iSCAN, a phoneme-based predictive communication system, which offers phoneme prediction and phoneme-based word prediction.  ...  To address this problem, phoneme-based communication systems have been proposed which enable users to create spoken output from phoneme sequences.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We thank the Scottish Informatics and Computer Science Alliance and the University of Dundee's School of Computing for funding this project.  ...

Advanced Technology in Speech Disorder Therapy of Romanian Language [article]

Mirela Danubianu, Iolanda Tobolcea, Stefan Gheorghe Pentiuc
2009 arXiv   pre-print
The aim of this paper is to present a few CBTS developed for the treatment of various language and speech disorders specific to the Romanian language.  ...  Because the Romanian language is a phonetic one that has its own special linguistic particularities, there is a real need to develop advanced information systems, which can be used to assist and help specialists  ...  For example, the use of electronic communication systems allows nonspeaking people and people with severe physical disabilities to engage in the give and take of shared thought.  ...

Speech recognition and dysarthria: a single subject study of two individuals with profound impairment of speech and motor control

Christina Havstam, Margret Buchholz, Lena Hartelius
2003 Logopedics, Phoniatrics, Vocology  
This study investigated the use of the speech recognition system Dragon Dictate as an augmentative method of computer access for two individuals with cerebral palsy, including severe motor dysfunction  ...  Dragon Dictate is time-consuming to learn and demands a high level of motivation, but can be beneficial to a person who has profound dysarthria and great difficulties in accessing the computer.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The project was supported by The Secretariat for the Mental and Physical Disabilities Committee, Västra Gö taland region, Sweden.  ...

An integrated theory of language production and comprehension

Martin J. Pickering, Simon Garrod
2013 Behavioral and Brain Sciences  
We then consider the evidence for interweaving in action, action perception, and joint action, and explain such evidence in terms of prediction.  ...  We show (a) how speakers and comprehenders use covert imitation and forward modeling to make predictions at these levels of representation, (b) how they interweave production and comprehension processes  ...  For example, the speaker might predict that the kite concept should have the first phoneme /k/ and predict that it should be a noun at the same time, or indeed predict the first phoneme without making  ...
