There are not a few people in Spain that technology is capable of helping, although there is always room for improvement. On a personal level, I believe that technology should be inclusive and if it is possible that people with greater difficulties can have a simpler life, welcome.
Google has published a tool that allows us to use the mobile to speak simply by moving our eyes, a great function for people with very reduced mobility and that, although it is not the first time we have seen something similar, it is an application that is worth trying .
Google’s experiment with artificial intelligence to talk by moving the eyes
Google has published a very interesting application in the Play Store that aims to allow people with reduced mobility to speak through a smartphone. This feature uses the mobile camera and Tensorflow artificial intelligence technology to recognize eye movement.
The mobile must be at a distance close enough to our face so that it recognizes us well, in addition to being able to read the answer that we want to write. And then what should we do?
Two columns appear on the screen. What we want to say will be in one of them and we will have to move our eyes to that side. When we do, the words in that column will be divided into 2, having to repeat the process again until one of them remains, we can also look at at to cancel or put the mobile on hold so that it stops registering our gaze.
At the moment the application is in English, but we have the possibility to manually add any word or phrase that we want the interlocutor to say. When using Google’s speech synthesis, if we write words or phrases in Spanish they will work perfectly, which makes it a recommended application.
The entry The latest Google accessibility experiment you can try: so you can speak just by moving your eyes appears first in The Free Android.
