Smart Cyber Assistance 

Product Description

Smart Cyber Assist is a voice recognition based remote computer controlling system. It can handle the main functions of the Windows Operating System and also all the functions of Microsoft Word using speech recognition.

The app makes it possible to control a computer through SMS on any mobile phone, a micro website or Skype. In addition, users can access and retrieve their files on a remote PC into their android phone or they can upload files in to drop box or any other file sharing system.

Jurors’ Evaluation 

Smart Cyber Assist commendably opens up a new user interface of a computer replacing the mouse and keyboard. It is a tool that further enhances some of the voice recognition and control tools provided by the most popular operating systems available currently.

This system optimizes the user interface and would especially help certain disadvantaged communities such as the visually handicapped and the disabled people to use computers more effectively. In addition, these users can customize the operating commands to their own voice and produce up to three personal commands to execute one function. The tool can be configured to provide the corresponding voice response.  Furthermore it will support the localization feature (Sinhala) for voice.

  Swaraloka 

Product Description

Swarālōka provides a controllable auditory interface -- instead of music Braille for the visually impaired to independently study and experiment on music composition.

Swarālōka mainly consists of an Optical Music Recognition (OMR) sub system and an output converter. Its OMR helps to pre-process the image of music notation script, detect regions of interest and to recognize symbols. Converter uses OMR output to sequence audio clips relevant to the process script and plays enabled audio layers concurrently through the audio mixer. The interface has been embedded with specific qualities that assist visually impaired users without the aid of a third party.

Jurors’ Evaluation

The rich content and the features of Swarālōka convert standard Eastern music notations used in Sri Lanka into a readable output format. This allows the visually impaired students to navigate through the auditory output created in a similar way to a sighted music student and generate an audio output with several concurrent audio signal layers with the ability to easily disable and enable audio layers. The Saptak assistance mode provided in the Swaraloka facilitates users to save processed music notations for future use and can easily switch between singing mode and speech mode. This product received the Jurors unanimous commendation as a winner as it can propel the disadvantaged visually impaired people to lead creative lives as contributing and participating members in society, which till now has largely excluded them.
