    Raspberry Pi Speech to Text LED Face Mask

    element14 presents  |  Lorraine Underwood's VCP Profile |  Project Videos




    Even with the best of hearing, it can be difficult to understand what someone wearing a face mask is saying. Many people who are hard of hearing rely on using lip reading to understand what everyone is saying. With everyone wearing face masks, that amazing skill has been taken away. This project aims to help us all wear masks, look cool and understand each other more. A light up grid will be hidden inside your mask, and using a microphone your every word will be transcribed and scrolled across your face mask Lorraine will show you how to code an LED speech-to-text mask using a raspberry pi. This project has lots of potential to become a real life object, used in everyday life. Check out the links below for a further video where Lorraine explores using a paid for transcription services on a PC with Bluetooth to make a working scrolling facemask. Good enough for a doctor’s surgery to use for their patients.
