Talk it Out: Adding Speech Interaction to Support Informational and Transactional Applications on Public Touch-Screen Kiosks

Kheng Hui Yeo, Rafael E. Banchs

In this paper we present a method that enables people to interact with large touch-screen displays using spoken language. Such panels are commonly used in public areas for information and advertisement. A personal mobile device is used to convert the speech signal into text, which is then sent to the panel via an Internet connection. This allows speaker adaptation and background noise issues to be mitigated. Information may also be sent to the user for later reference on their personal device.
