Project Description

Project IRIS is a Real-Time Close-Captioning System intended for the purpose of aiding the deaf and hearing impaired community to communicate with those around them. This is accomplished using a smartphone and a pair of Heads Up Display glasses to provide speech to text translation and display it in a way to allows the user to stay involved in the conversation. The smartphone controls the flow of data by sampling and parsing the audio, sending it to a speech-to-text API and sending the returned text to the glasses for display. The glasses are used to provide a means of displaying the text without blocking the user's field of vision. We were able to create an Android app that utilizes these hardware components to achieve our objectives.
