An Alternative Voice Communication Aid based on ASR

Authors(2) :-Hritika Rathore, Jyotsna Sagar

This paper include the implementation aspects of alternative communication aid for the person suffering from speech impairment problem. The Alternative Communication Aid (AVCA) is an automatic voice recognition system that uses the concept of automatic speech recognition system (ASR) and announce the constructed sentence. For feature extraction from sound waves we have used mel frequency cepstral coefficient (MFCC) and DTW algorithm to find the distance between two vectors. This system also incorporate the feature of record voice samples in runtime.
