Project #73: Spoken Te Reo Numeracy Game for Smart Devices

Back

Description:

The MPAi project has developed a language pronunciation aid which uses a variety of technologies, including speech recognition to provide feedback to users about their pronunciation of Maori. The current system works on a pc and on the web. It is designed for people who can speak Māori, and are wanting to improve their pronunciation. The aim of this project is to create a game for smart devices aimed at people who want to learn Māori. People will provide spoken answers to number problems. In addition to creating a game, it will involve setting up a newly released open source speech recognition system called Kaldi on a server and developing a Restful API to interface between the server and a client. Security will be another of the major focuses of this project, as uploading speech to a remote server creates security challenges. The user interface of the game is another important aspect of this project, and userability studies will be completed as part of the project.

Outcome:

The finished product will be a numeracy game that involves spoken Te Reo running on a Smart Device.
