Ronzhin, A. and Karpov, A. and Železný, M. and Mesheryakov, R. : Smart multimodal assistant for disabled . HCI International 2007, 4550-66, p. 201-205, Springer, Heidelberg, 2007.


Multimodal assistive system intended for people with diverse kinds of physical disabilities is sketched. Six models for processing input and output modalities: natural speech recognition, head position tracking, lips tracking, speech and facial synthesis as well as esophageal voice are studied. Special attention was paid to automatic stenography system for hand-disabled people, which is intended for hands free text input. The complexity of graph topology for Russian vocabulary was reduced by a factor of 17 due to considering the grammatical rules and using lexical tree representation.
