Lip Reading Software for Messaging

 Intriguing idea.   An air gap indeed, but secure? 

Lip-Reading Software Helps Users of All Abilities to Send Secure Messages

University of California News,  Lorena Anderson,  March 18, 2021

Lip-reading software developed by researchers at the University of California, Merced (UC Merced)'s Human-Computer Interaction Group can continuously learn from its users. LipType allows users to send texts or emails on their computers and mobile devices, and contactlessly engage with public devices without speaking aloud. The UC Merced team incorporated filters for different lighting conditions and a mistake-corrector based on different language models into LipType, which was faster and less error-prone than other lip-readers. UC Merced's Laxmi Pandey said, "LipType performed 58% faster and 53% more accurately than other state-of-the-art models in various real-world settings, including poor lighting and busy market situations."
