  3. Integration of Voice Input and CD-ROM Technology to Provide

    SBC: Computer Multimedia            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Vocational Rehabilitation has determined that efforts to adequately serve Deaf clients could be greatly enhanced by a voice-to-sign translation system (Shalls, 1997; Ward, 1997). It is hard for DVR to hire enough VR Counselors fluent in sign language (Shalls) and very expensive to hire interpreters to handle all communication between Counselors and Deaf clients. Very few prospect ...

  8. Adaptive Data Compression for Efficient File Transport Over Wireless Networks

    SBC: Artery Communication            Topic: N/A

    Because of the scarce network bandwidth available on the wireless links, data compression plays a critical role in the wireless system design. We propose to evaluate existing public-domain and commercial lossless data compression packages in the context of wireless networking. The specific criteria used include compression efficiency, compression speed, memory usage, and ease of being incorporat ...
