Orator - an intelligent system supporting stuttering therapy

Warianty tytułu
Języki publikacji
The paper presents the Orator computer system, which is a system for detection and therapy of stuttering. The system comes out to the need of stuttering people. It consists of three modules: stuttering detection, stuttering therapy and automatic control of therapy process. The main idea of the system is based on the useful device - DAF (Delayed Auditory Feedback). The method drawn from DAF is implemented and the computer program can be used in manual mode as a DAF device. The main advantage of the Orator system is the automatic mode of therapy, and it is free. The paper gives introduction to the stuttering problem, presents the developed modules and methods used. The two techniques have been used for stuttering detection: SOM network and simple fuzzy rules. The latest proves to be considerably better. The paper ends with some remarks about the system.
