Sharon Systems announces the release of the “Rhema STH ver 00.01“ today as an open source software application (FOSS) today.
Rhema STH is designed to help those with speech disability. It helps the individual train their vocal outputs to a Master wave form already recorded and stored in the system. The system is designed to accept readily available speech corpus of any language. Sphinx, the software provided by Carnegie Mellon University, will assimilate the corpus to enable the use of that language in the system.
The first version is being released with the hope and confidence that more talented and interested developers would join in the effort to make a truly viable software application that would help the 416 million people with this disability.
Sharon systems has tested this version with the students of the Dr. MGR school for the speech and hearing impaired, Chennai, India with the kind co-operation of its Principal Mrs Latha Rajendran.
A Tablet PC version for Android, will be released soon. It would help the individual to train with little help from others, to match the wave form and test word recognition by the system.
