Measuring Impact of Speakliz Innovation
SpeakLiz is an evolution of Sign Language. At the same time, the sign language allows the deaf to communicate with only those who understand it, SpeakLiz will enable them to communicate more efficiently and fluidly with just about everyone.
- The Sign Language Recognition feature transforms classic sign language into a modern form of communication, by converting it into voice and text in realtime using smart devices.
- The Surrounding Sound feature keeps the users aware of their surroundings. It detects acoustic parameters to identify specific sounds around them. These include emergency vehicles, alarms, female and male voices, kids voices, etc. Once such sounds are detected, the users are alerted by vibration and visual signals. Also, through Artificial Intelligence, SpeakLiz can be trained to learn to identify new sounds.
- The Listening* feature allows deaf users to “read” what other people are saying. SpeakLiz understands +35 languages in a human voice. When a person speaks to a SpeakLiz user, their sound is converted into the text format in realtime. The user can read what is being said and respond accordingly. The deaf user can now perform daily activities without any impairment.
- Speaking is the opposite process of listening. Using this feature, a deaf user can type their thoughts. The text can then converted into speech with the press of a button (emoticons included).
