Title (EN) WEARABLE VIBROTACTILE SPEECH AID
(FR) AIDE À LA PAROLE VIBROTACTILE À PORTER SUR SOI
Abstract:
(EN) An array of vibrotactile transducers can be in contact with the person's body. A method for improving auditory and/or visual speech perception in adverse listening conditions or for hearing-impaired individuals can also comprise sampling a speech signal, extracting a speech envelope, and generating a control signal configured to cause a vibrotactile transducer to vibrate again a person's body with an intensity that varies over time based on the speech envelope.
(FR) L'invention concerne un réseau de transducteurs vibrotactiles peut être en contact avec le corps de la personne. Un procédé d'amélioration de la perception auditive et/ou visuelle de la parole dans des conditions d'écoute défavorables ou pour des personnes malentendantes peut également comprendre les étapes consistant à : échantillonner un signal de parole; extraire une enveloppe de parole; et générer un signal de commande conçu pour faire vibrer un transducteur vibrotactile contre le corps d'une personne avec une intensité qui varie au cours du temps sur la base de l'enveloppe de parole.
