To illustrate the potential of multilayer neural networks for adaptive interfaces, a VPL Data-Glove connected to a DECtalk speech synthesizer via five neural networks was used to implement a hand-gesture to speech system. Using minor variations of the standard backpropagation learning procedure, the complex mapping of hand movements to speech is learned using data obtained from a single ;speaker' in a simple training phase. With a 203 gesture-to-word vocabulary, the wrong word is produced less… CONTINUE READING
