Title
(EN) ARTIFICIAL SPEECH AID TONE GENERATING DEVICE
(FR) DISPOSITIF GENERATEUR DE SONORITE POUR PROTHESE VOCALE
Abstract
(EN) A novel device for the production of a tone suitable for use in artificial speech aids. Artificial speech aids provide for a method of speech for individuals who have either temporarily or permanently lost the use of their vocal cords, through the production and delivery of a substitute vocal tone to the user's oral cavity, thereby allowing such individuals to speak through articulation of the tone into words. The present invention concerns a novel device for the production of the substitute vocal tone. In the present device, the tone is produced by actuating a solenoid reed valve (12, 13) to a sufficient frequency that sound is produced, which sound is then amplified by the passage of pressurized air through the valve (10) as it is actuated. The invention herein includes an electrical pulse generator (30) for producing the pulsed electrical signal needed to operate the solenoid reed valve.
(FR) Un nouveau dispositif permet de produire des sonorités pouvant être utilisées dans des prothèses vocales. Les prothèses vocales permettent aux individus ayant momentanément ou définitivement perdu l'usage de leurs cordes vocales de retrouver l'usage de la parole grâce à la production de sonorités vocales acheminées jusqu'à la cavité vocale de l'utilisateur, mettant ainsi ces individus en mesure de parler par l'intermédiaire d'une articulation des sonorités en mots. Dans le nouveau dispositif permettant de produire les sonorités vocales de remplacement, ces dernières sont produites en actionnant une soupape (12, 13) à solénoïde à lame souple à une fréquence suffisante pour produire un son, lequel son est alors amplifié par le passage d'air pressurisé à travers la soupape (10) lorsque celle-ci est actionnée. L'invention concerne également un générateur d'impulsions électriques (30) permettant de produire le signal électrique pulsé nécessaire à l'actionnement de la soupape à solénoïde à lame souple.
