The following article explains how five Australian Universities are improving speech recognition for children’s voices. At the moment, Speech recognition technology is currently based on adult voices which finds it difficult to pick up the nuances in children’s language. The project is expected to be completed by june 2021.
I am interested in this innovation and its application for children. Increasingly I use voice recognition in my daily life and watch as my children have great difficulty interacting with speech and find it quite a frustrating experience.
