Abstract
THERE CURRENTLY EXISTS NO ECONOMICALLY PRACTICAL REAL-TIME CAPTIONING DEVICES OR METHODS WHICH CAN PROVIDE A SPEEDY AND ACCURATE REPRODUCTION OF SPEECH-TO-TEXT TRANSLATION IN THE CLASSROOM. THE INTEGRATION OF SPEECH RECOGNITION WITH REAL- TIME CAPTIONING HOLDS THE PROMISE OF PROVIDING A TRANSPARENT INTERFACE BETWEEN THE SPEAKER AND THE AUDIENCE. TN THIS PHASE I RESEARCH, WE WILL CONDUCT AN INVESTIGATION TO DETERMINE THE VIABILITY AND FEASIBILITY OF AUTOMATIC SPEECH RECOGNITION WITH THE REAL-TIME CAPTIONING PROCESS AND TO DEVELOP A COST EFFICIENT AND ECONOMICAL MODEL TO INTEGRATE SPEECH RECOGNITION WITH REAL-TIME CAPTIONING SUITABLE FOR APPLICATION IN A VARIETY OF ENVIRONMENTS SUCH AS NEW AND SPORTS PROGRAMS AND INTERPRETIVE NEEDS IN CLASSROOMS. THIS PROJECT WILL RESULT IN A FUNCTIONAL REQUIREMENT AND THE PRELIMINARY SYSTEM DESIGN OF SUCH A REAL-TIME CAPTIONING SYSTEM.
