Title (EN) ASSOCIATING A USER VOICE QUERY WITH HEAD DIRECTION
(FR) ASSOCIATION D’UNE QUESTION VOCALE D’UN UTILISATEUR À UNE DIRECTION DE LA TÊTE
Abstract:
(EN) A method and apparatus, e.g. a digital assistant, for associating a query to a direction is provided herein. During operation, a virtual partner will attempt to determine a direction to which the query was originated to. When answering the query, the virtual partner will adjust multiple speaker outputs so that the reply is perceived to come from the same direction where the query was originated to. Additionally, if another follow-on query is made into a particular direction, the follow-on query will be associated with the prior query originating from the same particular direction.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé et un appareil, par exemple un assistant numérique, pour associer une question à une direction. Durant le fonctionnement, un partenaire virtuel essaie de déterminer une direction d’où est provenue la question. Lors de la réponse à la question, le partenaire virtuel ajuste de multiples sorties de haut-parleur de sorte que la réponse semble provenir de la même direction d’où est provenue la question. De plus, si une autre question subséquente est posée dans une direction particulière, la question subséquente est associée à la question précédente provenant de la même direction particulière.
