This paper describes a speech-enabled Computer Aided Pronunciation Learning (CAPL) system HAFSS ©. This system was developed for teaching Arabic pronunciations to non-native speakers. A challenging application of HAFSS © is teaching the correct recitation of the holy Qur'an. HAFSS © uses a state of the art speech recognizer to detect errors in user(More)
Dynamics of a chaotic spiking neuron model are being studied mathematically and experimentally. The Nonlinear Dynamic State neuron (NDS) is analysed to further understand the model and improve it. Chaos has many interesting properties such as sensitivity to initial conditions, space filling, control and synchronization. As suggested by biologists, these(More)
Further analysis and experimentation is carried out in this paper for a chaotic dynamic model, viz. the Nonlinear Dynamic State neuron (NDS). The analysis and experimentations are performed to further understand the underlying dynamics of the model and enhance it as well. Chaos provides many interesting properties that can be exploited to achieve(More)
Error correcting codes, also known as error controlling codes, are set of codes with redundancy that allows detecting errors. This is quite useful in transmitting data over a noisy channel or when retrieving data from a storage with possible physical defects. The idea is to use a set of code words that are maximally distant from each other, hence reducing(More)
This paper presents an optical character/text recognition (OCR) system for cursive scripts like those of Arabic, Urdu, Persian, Kurdish, etc. This OCR system is a large-scale one in the sense of architecture, training data size, and state-of-the-art performance. The paper introduces the theoretical derivation and experimental assessment of our two main(More)
