VISUAL SPEECH RECOGNITION
Deciphers speech from lip movement
State-of-the-art deep learning
& robust Visual Speech Recognition (VSR) platform
OVERVIEW – VSR APPLICATIONS
Liopa’s Visual Speech Recognition has various application use cases.
with Liopa LipRead
Liopa has created a novel, robust and convenient VSR platform, known as LipRead. Specifically, the Liopa technology can determine speech by analysing the movement of a user’s lips as they speak into a camera. These lip movements are known as visemes and are the visual equivalent of a phoneme or unit of sound in spoken language. The Liopa technology requires no additional hardware and will work on any device with a standard forward facing camera (e.g. smartphone, tablet, laptop, desktop, in-vehicle dashboard etc.).
VISUAL SPEECH RECOGNITION (VSR)
Liopa’s VSR – LipRead – is video only & not affected by poor audio quality and background noise.
LipRead improves word accuracy in real-world/noisy environments to offer seamless, intuitive language-processing accuracy for enhanced voice user interface.
ENHANCED QUALITY & USABILITY
LipRead can enhance the quality and usability of the Voice UI in shared offices, on the move, across the production line or at home.
LipRead employs a proprietary Machine Learning approach using Deep Learning & can be ‘intelligently’ integrated with ASR technology using dynamic weighting algorithms.
