 Disability Sector :                   Speech Impairments
 Function :                                Daily basic activities aids, Communication and speech aids
 Category of research :           New technology/product (not existing in the country)
 Brief description of the product/ technology:
 Speech impairment refers to the inability to produce normal speech. Dysarthria is a kind of speech disorder where there is a  difficulty in  producing the normal  speech. The proposed system makes use of an mic that senses the vocal cord vibrations. When a  set of incomplete or unclear words are spoken by the user, the  words are compared with the pre-programmed words in the speech  processor where it is analyzed and corresponding legible audio output is  heard through the  speaker.This system can be  implemented in real-time to express the basic needs of speech impaired.   
 Will be very useful for partial speech impairment.
