This project aims at developing an user interface combined with a speech engine and a library of pre-defined face expressions to improve the user (with communication disability)'s communication with other people. With the interface the user can select words by pointing which form a sentence and combines the output with selected face expressions. A user test is conducted to assess whether the iCat's facial expressions are correctly recognized.
During this project we discovered the iCat OPPR software was not ready yet for connecting it to our main interface. The main focus now was researching the possibilities of an user interface which can deliver fast results for text-to-speech conversion for disabled people.
