AI-based speech therapy app
You can speak well if your tongue can deliver the message of your heart.
Every year, a significant number of people undergo surgery or treatment for throat conditions.
Surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy result in speech problems. This is where speech-language pathologists step in to help patients regain their voice, but the recovery period can span months and even years.
Patients who are unable or unwilling to speak have to write phrases in a paper notebook whenever they need to communicate. This process is exceptionally unwieldy and leads to social anxiety and communication avoidance, which dramatically slows down rehabilitation.
However, research shows that recording a person’s voice before surgery or treatment can significantly speed up recovery and simplify conversations.
Vocalipy is here to put these findings into practice.
Vocalipy is a mobile speech therapy application developed by doctors and scientists for patients who are about to have treatment for a throat condition and are likely to experience speech problems during recovery.
Running on smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets, Vocalipy records the patient’s speech before treatment into a phrasebook, which can later assist in communication.
In doing so, it not only plays pre-recorded words, combining them into phrases but also generates new phrases with the help of artificial intelligence that learns from past and current patterns.
Patients use Vocalipy before surgery or treatment to dictate a set of words and phrases, structured by medical experts into a smart, self-learning phrasebook.
The app comes in handy in daily conversations, offering a sleek UI with convenient navigation and predictive recommendations.
It relies on AI to process speech input and suggest replies based on statistics, location, and various patterns.
When the phrasebook falls short, Vocalipy pulls together pre-recorded words and synthesizes new phrases using text-to-speech.
