© Springer International Publishing AG 2017. In this work, we present a silent speech system that is able to generate audible speech from captured movement of speech articulators. Our goal is to help laryngectomy patients, i.e. patients who have lost...

A silent speech system based on permanent magnet articulography and direct synthesis (2016)
Journal Article
Gonzalez, J. A., Cheah, L. A., Gilbert, J. M., Bai, J., Ell, S. R., Green, P. D., & Moore, R. K. (2016). A silent speech system based on permanent magnet articulography and direct synthesis. Computer speech & language, 39, 67-87. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.csl.2016.02.002

In this paper we present a silent speech interface (SSI) system aimed at restoring speech communication for individuals who have lost their voice due to laryngectomy or diseases affecting the vocal folds. In the proposed system, articulatory data cap... Read More about A silent speech system based on permanent magnet articulography and direct synthesis.

Abstract: A new wearable silent speech interface (SSI) based on Permanent Magnetic Articulography (PMA) was developed with the involvement of end users in the design process. Hence, desirable features such as appearance, port-ability, ease of use and...
