Hi everyone,

For the design crit Tuesday April 16th, Ayoade (Ade) Adetokubo from the University of Cincinnati will be sharing a project supporting pharmacists with sign-to-text / voice.

An interface to assist pharmacists with hearing challenges communicate with patients. The concept is to have a two way translation system:

  *   takes spoken words from patient and translates it into text for pharmacists to read
  *   takes sign language from pharmacist and translates it into text and audio

Project is inspired by the story:

We have a conceptual design of how the system might work, looking for feedback on following

  *   possible precedents
  *   challenges and concerns around sign to text, voice to text systems
  *   any input on what
  *   general usability and experience feedback

The meeting will be from 2pm to 3pm ET and will be hosted in the Collaboration room at 205 Richmond Street West (IDRC offices) in Toronto, and online in the Fluid-Standup Vidyo room.

To join us online, visit the fluid_standup<> Vidyo web conference room. If you have technical issues related to audio or video, please try Google Chrome to access the conference room.

- Jon.
