The THERESIAH project aims to develop a new therapy-system to train hearing and articulation of highly hearing-impaired persons. THERESIAH complements existing forms of therapy, especially for patients with a cochlear implant. Therapy with THERESIAH is software-based and uses gamification. Users are able to rise to different difficulty levels through training frequency as well as moviation- and feedback systems.
One central aspect of THERESIAH is the speech-recognition technology developed by the Fraunhofer IDMT Oldenburg. Scientists of the Division for Hear-, Speech-, and Audiotechnology are developing speech-recogniton technology, which recognizes pathological patterns of articulation.This aims to give participants feedback about their articulation and therefore enable them to intensify their training. The project is supported by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, Germany.
