Abstract
A novel and promising solution for hands - and eyes-free voice interface for point-of-care data entry is proposed. The solution consists of the following major modules: a recently-developed noise-reduction microphone, a Bluetooth earphone, an automatic speech recognizer, a text-to-speech synthesizer, and a dialogue manager. To make the developed system useful in combat environments, we emphasize on noise robustness and user-friendly dialogue management. Our unique new research results and algorithms in noise and recognition robustness are applied; new development language and tools for dialogue management are used in the system integration. Every effort has been made to minimize the project risk and deliver a useful system in this project.
