HearWell

Biplov:

Investigate the issues that Dr. Sharma brought to the forefront, in particular

    1. Apps: interestingly, they all tend to ask for age — maybe starting with an expected profile for someone of a given age.
      1. Mimi hearing test
      2. Hearing Test & Ear Age Test
      3. Hearing Test, Audiometry, Tone
        1. This sounds like a winner — Biplov: check into the prices for this.
      4. Signia Hearing Test — couldn’t check;
      5. uHear — couldn’t check
      6. hearWHO -- Check your hearing!
        1. Used a sequence of digits, expressed at different frequencies, checking perhaps for sound distinction.
    2. Devices:
      1. Williams Sound PockeTalker Ultra Duo Sound Amplifier with Headphone & Earbud
        1. Looks for the volume and tone, rather than frequency…..
        2. allows to control tone and volume of a certain pitch(freq)
        3. can do testing, picking frequencies and raising volume until you can hear it.
      2. Electret microphones (suggested by a Canadian friend, Joe).
      3. Arduino with MIDI support (Joe suggests getting stuff from Adafruit): maybe this one? -- I'm checking with Joe)
      4. Joe also mentioned looking into a Heads Up Display, as we move to using eyes to focus

Steve:

  1. Mathematica tester improvements and suggestions.
  2. Investigate Mathematica commands to do the speech recognition, etc.
    1. e.g. PitchRecognize
    2. SpeechComputation
    3. AudioPitchShift
    4. AudioFrequencyShift

Andy:

  1. IRB approval
  2. Look into the R Fourier analysis routines
  3. Imagining:
    1. bats, zooming in on the person speaking;
    2. lip reading;
    3. Mathematica turning speech into text, and then having that read into the listener’s ears.
    4. Getting Marek involved, to provide linguistic advice.
