Silent Sound Technology: An End To Noisy Communications | Latest Technology Trends

You are in a movie theater or noicy restaurent or a bus etc where there is lot of noice around is big issue while talking on a mobile phone. But in the future this problem is eliminated with ”silent sounds”, a new technology unveiled at the CeBIT fair on Tuesday that transforms lip movements into a computer-generated voice for the listener at the other end of the phone.

The device, developed by the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), uses electromyography, monitoring tiny muscular movements that occur when we speak and converting them into electrical pulses that can then be turned into speech, without a sound uttered.Crowd Talking On Mobile Phones

‘Silent Sound’ technology aims to notice every movements of the lips and transform them into sounds, which could help people who lose voices to speak, and allow people to make silent calls without bothering others. Rather than making any sounds, your handset would decipher the movements your mouth makes by measuring muscle activity, then convert this into speech that the person on the other end of the call can hear. So, basically, it reads your lips.

“We currently use electrodes which are glued to the skin. In the future, such electrodes might for example by incorporated into cellphones,” said Michael Wand, from the KIT.

The technology opens up a host of applications, from helping people who have lost their voice due to illness or accident to telling a trusted friend your PIN number over the phone without anyone eavesdropping — assuming no lip-readers are around.

The technology can also turn you into an instant polyglot. Because the electrical pulses are universal, they can be immediately transformed into the language of the user’s choice.

“Native speakers can silently utter a sentence in their language, and the receivers hear the translated sentence in their language. It appears as if the native speaker produced speech in a foreign language,” said Wand.

The translation technology works for languages like English, French and Gernan, but for languages like Chinese, where different tones can hold many different meanings, poses a problem, he added.

Noisy people in your office? Not any more. “We are also working on technology to be used in an office environment,” the KIT scientist told AFP.

The engineers have got the device working to 99 percent efficiency, so the mechanical voice at the other end of the phone gets one word in 100 wrong, explained Wand.

“But we’re working to overcome the remaining technical difficulties. In five, maybe ten years, this will be useable, everyday technology,” he said.

  2. rajani says:

    sir i can’t imagine it,can u explain me the working….

  3. suresh says:

    Hello sir after reading this “SILENT SOUND TECHNOLOGY” I got shocked,I cant imagine,so Iam very eager to know its working will u pls explain?

  4. sangeeta says:

    i can’t understand the working of silent sound technology

  5. Jawahar says:

    It’s very amazing sir… But i hav a doubt.It is said that the phone converts inaudible(lip movements without makin sound) to audible sounds.Does it takes input as only d lip movements or even audible sounds(like any baby crying or souns of vehicles moving besides us when we are speaking?..please, explain me sir.

  6. soundariya says:

    Sir,its an amazing project cant imagine can u explain me in detail about this………. And also say me what are the technologies you are using……..All the best

  7. himanshu says:

    please please forward me the working in detail…. as i am eager to know about the method of taking the inputs… plus lip movement depends on the accent of the person.. so whether this will be taken into consideration or not??

  8. Ankur says:

    This will not help in differenciating persons and hence emotions.
    It will be like you are always talking to robot.

  9. Shilpa says:

    Sir,i liked this technology very much.i am an engineering student(electronics n telecommunication),i am plannig to do my B.E. project in the same domain.Could you please forward me the working details of silent sound technology.

  10. kathir says:

    please please forward me the working in detail…. as i am very much like to know the working principle. i have to some think in to this project…. please forward details about the project in mail

  11. Anu says:

    sir i find it really interesting and i want to know about this deeply.
    sir please forward me the working of this technology

  12. TARUN MAHAJAN says:

    I think it will help lovers to talk to each other plz launch this device as early as possible…………………………

  13. MOHIT JAIN says:

    sir can u plzz forward me the ppt om this topic needed urgently itz amazing technology.

  14. ashu says:

    sir,this is very intersting and amazing technology.can u please send me the proper working details n ppt of the technology.sir plzz its urgent……………..

  15. Jayendra says:

    Its unbelievable project. I am very surprised and can not understand how to react after reading such a good article. No doubt, it will help the person who cann’t speak to talk with other people to speak in mobile phone.

  16. s says:

    sir,i am an CS engineering student,i would like to do a seminar on this topic.plz could you provide the necessary details.sir, its very urgent

  17. s says:

    sir,i am an CS engineering student,i would like to do a seminar on this topic.plz could you provide the necessary details.sir, its very urgent

  18. thiya says:

    i want working principle of this technology it really amazing sir………

  19. cool gadgets says:

    This New Technology Will Be Very Helpful Whenever A Person Looses His Voice While Speaking Or Allow People To Make Silent Calls Without Disturbing Others, Even We Can Tell Our PIN Number To A Trusted Friend Or Relative Without Eavesdropping . ..

  20. Vaigundaraj says:

    I’d read about “Silent Sound” and my doubt is, How the device can translate the voice of whether it is male or female. bec it can detect only lips movement only know

  21. Tinsy.c says:

    Sir,I’m an engineering student.I really liked this topic.I would like to do a seminar on this topic. can you please provide the details related to this topic as a report.Sir its very urgent.

  29. Prashant Mishra says:

    well ….. this sounds good……..that this kind of technology can be developed.It will be like a boon for those who have lost their voice. But there are some doubts in my mind first that how this technology will differentiates between words which have similar lips movements and second that this technology will be very costly for a common man.
