Abstract

The lack (or limited amount) of audio feedback for many persons with hearing disabilities greatly reduces the quality of speech development and use. Current methodologies for the teaching speech techniques are relatively primitive, and generally require the active participation of a therapist. This makes essential practice difficult, time consuming, and expensive for the student. However, using multimedia technology, it is possible to amplify the efforts of the teachers and students for improving the quality of speech. This paper presents a multimedia visualization system that augments the limited hearing capabilities of hearing impaired persons using visual and tactile feedback approaches and provides alternate representations of sound for increasing speech capabilities and reduced learning time. The proposed system has the capability of not only decreasing the learning time for many persons, but can also be adopted for teaching young children correct speech patterns through the use of speech learning "games" based on the system.
