Paper Title
Assistive Translator And Zigbee Enabled Aid For The Deaf

Communication is the basic means of sharing information amidst the society. Our field of interest lies in creating a device in order to banish the communication barrier, within the mass and the deaf. A prototype design of a device which would translate the spoken words into text has been proposed in this project. Real time speech processing is required for the conversion of speech to text. Also, home automation has been proposed in order to inform the user of the on-goings about the house. This can be implemented by using sensors in various locations and transmitting the data through ZigBee transmitters. The handheld device would consist of a central microcontroller to interface between speech processing unit, display device and ZigBee receivers.
