Another new Glassware application has made it to Google Glass to make it less demanding for those deaf to communicate by bringing real time live captioning to Glass’ heads-up display. Created via specialists at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Captioning on Glass application influences the microphone on the associated smartphone to catch talked speech and make an translate of it into text on Glass utilizing Google’s speech recognition software as a part of real time event.
Lead developer Jim Foley, who is an professor at the School of Interactive Computing at the Georgia Institute of Technology, said:
“If hard-of-hearing people understand the speech, the conversation can continue immediately without waiting for the caption. However, if I miss a word, I can glance at the transcription, get the word or two I need and get back into the conversation.”
What’s more the motivation behind why the paired phone’s microphone is utilized, instead of the inherent mic on Google Glass, is on account of Glass’ receiver is intended to capture speech from the wearer.
The group is likewise dealing with an application intended to translate talked languages in real-time, which would be an incredible utility for travelers to foreign regions.
The Captioning on Glass Glassware application is accessible as a free download on Google Play.
