Speech AI Spotlight: Visualizing Spoken Language and Sounds on AR Glasses

Jun 23, 2023

Audio can include a wide range of sounds, from human speech to non-speech sounds like barking dogs and sirens. When designing accessible applications for people with hearing difficulties, the application should be able to recognize sounds and understand speech.

Such technology would help deaf or hard-of-hearing individuals with visualizing speech, like human conversations and non-speech sounds. Combining speech and sound AI together, you can overlay the visualizations onto AR glasses, making it possible for users to see and interpret sounds that they wouldn’t be able to hear otherwise. 

According to the World Health Organization, about 1.5B people (nearly 20% of the global population) live with hearing loss. This number could rise to 2.5B by 2050.

Cochl, an NVIDIA partner based in San Jose, is a deep-tech startup that uses sound AI technology to understand any type of audio. They are also a member of the NVIDIA Inception Program, which helps startups build their solutions faster by providing access to cutting-edge technology and NVIDIA experts.

The platform can recognize 37 environmental sounds, and the company went one step further by adding cutting-edge speech-to-text technology. This gives a truly complete understanding of the world of sound.

AR glasses to visualize any sound

AR glasses have the potential to greatly improve the lives of people with hearing loss as an accessible tool to visualize sounds. This technology can help enhance their communication abilities and make it easier for them to navigate and participate in the world around them.  ... '
