Abstract:My project involved developing a portable device capable of transcribing speech into braille to augment the hearing capabilities of the deaf. The device is able to recognize speech via a speech recognition software that I built using a category of AI called machine learning. This solution solves a lot of problems with current solutions, being easy to use and completely independent of visual cues.
