Chinese University of Hong Kong, China

We are developing a voice-enabled, mobile and customizable electronic communication book (e-Commu-Book) as an aid for people with speech impairment. When a user touches an image icon on the e-Commu-Book, the caption under the image icon will be read out by speech synthesis. The caregivers of the users can help customize contents to fit the users' needs. The record of a user's behavior can be uploaded to the cloud for future analysis so as to improve the user experience of the e-Commu-Book.
