Abstract

This paper reports on isolated word recognition experiments using a novel silent speech interface. The interface consist of magnetic pellets that are fixed to relevant speech articulators, and a set of magnetic field sensors that measure changes in the overall magnetic field created by these pellets during speech. The reported experiments demonstrate the effectiveness of this technique and show the suitability of the system, even at its early stages of development, for small vocabulary speech recognition.
