    The VisualSpeech Sibilants Game allows children to practice their speech therapy isolated sibilants exercises at home to correct sibilant distortions. This will allow children to practice this exercise more frequently, which may lead to faster improvements.

VisualSpeech Games with Voice Exercises

  • VisualSpeech Sustained Vowel Game for Dysphonia

    The VisualSpeech Sustained Vowel Game is a computer game for the sustained vowel exercise, which is an exercise commonly used in speech therapy to treat voice disorders and help children on learning how to control the loudness of their voice. The main character actions are controlled by the child's voice in real time. While playing the game, children perform the therapy exercise in a fun, engaging and intuitive manner. Additionally, the difficulty of the challenges can automatically adapt in response to the child's performance using a novel dynamic difficulty adjustment model. To measure the child's performance, the model uses parameters that are relevant to the therapy exercise: maximum phonation time and intensity level.

Since intensive exercise practice is required, this game aims to provide motivation for patients to perform the exercises on a daily basis, both in sessions and at home. This application evaluates the voice loudness (or vocal intensity), voice pitch (or vocal frequency) and maximum phonation time of the user, offering visual feedback in real time.

Descrição em breve


NovaSpeech is a 3D video retrieval and management system that supports multimodal health records and provides the SLTs with tools to support their work in many ways: (i) it allows SLTs to easily maintain a database of their patients speech exercises; (ii) it supports three-dimensional orofacial measurement and analysis in a non-intrusive way; and (iii) it offers the possibility of searching patient speech-exercises by similar facial characteristics, using facial image analysis techniques.
