  • /r/-Letter disorder diagnosis (/r/-LDD): Arabic speech database development for automatic diagnosis of childhood speech disorders (Case study)

    In light of the scarcity of both published and free Acoustic Arabic databases, we propose in this paper Acoustic Arabic database to be a reference in the field of automatic Arabic speech recognition, this database is the result of a case study that has been developed to contribute to the automatic diagnosis of speech disorders in Arabic speaking children, the field work was in collaboration with experts in communication and relying on some multinational Arabic schools to record samples of various Arabic speech dialects in normal circumstances. The letter "R" has been selected as the most common letters that children suffer from. In this paper we will explain the mechanism of the development and design of this database, which is divided into three sub databases: the first is for diagnosis of the disorder in a letter "R" when its position is in the beginning of the word and the second when it is in the middle of the word the last one when it is at end of the word, each sub database contains speech recordings for 60 children; 30 males and 30 females, each child repeats the voice disorder five times. We hope that this acoustic database will be considered challenge for working more and to be a reference for future researches as the identification of Arabic speech in general and especially for the automatic diagnosis and treatment of speech disorders for children.

  • Reference-free automatic quality assessment of tracheoesophageal speech

    Evaluation of the quality of tracheoesophageal (TE) speech using machines instead of human experts can enhance the voice rehabilitation process for patients who have undergone total laryngectomy and voice restoration. Towards the goal of devising a reference-free TE speech quality estimation algorithm, we investigate the efficacy of speech signal features that are used in standard telephone-speech quality assessment algorithms, in conjunction with a recently introduced speech modulation spectrum measure. Tests performed on two TE speech databases demonstrate that the modulation spectral measure and a subset of features in the standard ITU-T P.563 algorithm estimate TE speech quality with better correlation (up to 0.9) than previously proposed features.

  • Development of a recording protocol for the assessment of speech disorders

    Speech disorder refers to multiple reasons due to which a person will be unable to produce speech sounds fluently. Articulation and Phonological disorders are the most common disorders identified among the people. Analysis of speech disorders helps in providing necessary information for providing liable treatment by speech language pathologists. Extensive preparation and proper selection of target syllables is required for the treatment of subjects with speech disorders. The present work aims at establishing a minimum assessment protocol to estimate the prevalence of speech disorder. This paper presents a method to develop the recorded syllables with the use of PRAAT tool. The sample consisting of a 3-4 second recording of the six standard syllables. The samples was obtained using the PRAAT program and recorded in the .wav format in 20 different laptops. The samples was recorded inside a laboratory with minimal acoustic conditions. These .wav formats are now analyzed in the PRAAT tool which yields the formant frequency listing of all the 120 samples. The obtained frequencies of 120 samples are compared with the reference sample collected from the noise free acoustic testing laboratory with the use of sound level meter (type 2250) at gain of 120db. The ideal sample with the least difference is used for the further processing and analysis. Further, the hardware implementation is done by inserting the specifications of the best sample to an external sound card that is externally connected to a laptop which directly helps the speech samples to be saved in .wav format. This protocol helps speech language pathologists (SLP) in saving time for treatment planning and considerable effort involved in generating word containing target syllables.

  • A serious game for children with speech disorders and hearing problems

    Speech impediment affecting children with hearing difficulties and speech disorders requires speech therapy and much practice to overcome. To motivate the children to practice more, serious games can be used because children are more inclined to play games. In this paper, we have designed and implemented a serious game in which children can learn to speak specific words that they are expected to know before the age of 7. The game consists of an avatar controlled by the child through speech, with the objective of moving the avatar around the environment to earn coins. The avatar is controlled by voice commands such as Jump, Ahead, Back, Left, Right. Children will be guided by an arrow during the game instead of a getting help from a therapist or a teacher to guide the child to the next coin. This allows the child to practice longer hours, compared to clinical approaches under the supervision of a therapist, which are time-limited.

  • Development of a smart glove as a communication tool for people with hearing impairment and speech disorders

    This paper describes a project to create a novel design of a communication tool for individuals with hearing disabilities and speech disorders. It provides a detailed analysis of the engineering and scientific aspects of the system, and the fundamentals taken into account for social inclusion of such individuals. It also describes a comprehensive study of present and future applications of this technology to provide an enhanced tool to individuals to further improve their communication skills. Morse code is the base over which this new technology is proposed, which has gathered feedback from specialists and individuals with disabilities, to develop in a near future as a newer communication tool solution, with a robust functionality and an ergonomic design.

  • Virtual clinicians for the treatment of aphasia and speech disorders

    Aphasia is an acquired communication disorder that affects the ability to speak and understand spoken language. The purpose of this project is to create a virtual clinician to help individuals with aphasia practice self-initiated speech in everyday communication situations. The project will gauge the interaction and quality of this virtual clinician against those of a real clinician. The first of these tests was carried out using a prototype virtual- clinician avatar with a human driver, data was collected to compared efficiency of the client's speech to speech produced with a real clinician. Results suggest that clients respond appropriately to a virtual clinician.

  • Delayed Auditory Feedback for speech disorders

    Stuttering is fluid impairment in verbal speech which will be determined based on the involuntary repetitions and prolongations, either vowel or voiceless. A variety of methods is available to aid patients who suffer from stuttering. One of the treatment methods is using the DAF (Delayed Auditory Feedback) device, the patient hear his/her voice after few delays. DAF (Delayed Auditory Feedback) trains patients to speak fluently by playing back the patient's voice after some delays. DAF plays the person's own voice back to them, and they hear it with a slight delay, usually about one tenth of a second later. The aim of the paper is to design DAF in order to cure stuttering and relief patients from stresses that caused by stuttering. In this article, we have used AVR ATmega128 to design DAF in this aim. Microphone is also used to take the analog samples and A/D converter is used to convert analog to digital signals. Finally, the small “anti-stuttering” device that uses hearing aid technology to deliver Delayed Auditory Feedback (DAF) will be designed.

  • A computer-aided speech disorders correction system for Arabic language

    In this paper, we propose a hybrid technique that integrates both the audio visual analysis techniques to automate speech disorders treatment for Arabic language that can be used in many developing countries. We proposed a technique that is based on audio visual analysis of the patient's speech. For patient's audio analysis, we used the mel frequency cepstrum coefficients (MFCC's) and linear predictive cepstrum coefficients (LPCC's) as the key features to classify the audio. In addition, we used visual features for the analysis of the patient's video based on the patient's appearance. Audio visual features techniques are combined for increasing the efficiency of our recognition system. We present a comparative evaluation for both audio and video features. We perform the features evaluation using Dynamic time warping (DTW) for speech features and histogram based approach analysis for visual feature. Finally, we used a neural network based classifier to differentiate between normal and abnormal speech. This research presents an expert system with an interactive computerized environment that has the ability to treat patients with speech disorders problems.

  • Improvement of sound quality using support system for speech disorders

    Japan has a rapidly aging society. Concurrently, the number of patients suffering speech disorders is increasing every year, and the incidence rate is higher as age increases. Those suffering from speech disorders face communication problems in daily conversation. They are often able to communicate with speech substitutes, but these typically do not provide a sufficient sound frequency range to be understood in conversation. Therefore, we proposed a speech support system using body-conducted speech recognition. This system retrieves speech from body-conducted speech via a transfer function, using recognition to select a sub-word sequence and its duration. In this study, we demonstrate the effectiveness of producing clear body-conducted speech using a linear predictive coefficient instead of a transfer function. Then, instead of dividing body-conducted speech into syllables in a heuristic manner as in past studies, we used continuous sub-word recognition automatically. The improvement of the generated speech was confirmed in a jury test and articulatory feature analysis.

  • Discrimination of pathological voices using a time-frequency approach

    Acoustical measures of vocal function are routinely used in the assessments of disordered voice, and for monitoring the patient's progress over the course of voice therapy. Typically, acoustic measures are extracted from sustained vowel stimuli where short-term and long-term perturbations in fundamental frequency and intensity, and the level of "glottal noise" are used to characterize the vocal function. However, acoustic measures extracted from continuous speech samples may well be required for accurate prediction of abnormal voice quality that is relevant to the client's "real world" experience. In contrast with sustained vowel research, there is relatively sparse literature on the effectiveness of acoustic measures extracted from continuous speech samples. This is partially due to the challenge of segmenting the speech signal into voiced, unvoiced, and silence periods before features can be extracted for vocal function characterization. We propose a joint time-frequency approach for classifying pathological voices using continuous speech signals that obviates the need for such segmentation. The speech signals were decomposed using an adaptive time-frequency transform algorithm, and several features such as the octave max, octave mean, energy ratio, length ratio, and frequency ratio were extracted from the decomposition parameters and analyzed using statistical pattern classification techniques. Experiments with a database consisting of continuous speech samples from 51 normal and 161 pathological talkers yielded a classification accuracy of 93.4%.
