Abstract

Texting that is SMS is important function of any Mobile phone and we know that the mobile
phone usage in the World is spreading rapidly and has gone through great changes due to new
developments and innovations in mobile phone technology. This paper is based on creating a
messenger for the Differently-Abled set of Humans, who may not be in the position of using
mobile phones for messaging or any other kinds of communicating devices, with the required
comfort, we called it as application .In other words, messaging can be completely voice based.
The proposed Application is a Messaging System, which is Voice enabled. The application
listens to your messages and then responds with voice commands by talking. The application
converts your text into voice and voice into text. For Android it is Voice- to- Text technology to
listen to what you send and gets you connected with people.

SCOPE OF THE WORK

For the past several decades, designers have processed speech for a wide variety of applications
ranging from mobile communications to automatic reading machines. Speech recognition
reduces the overhead caused by alternate communication methods. Speech has not been used
much in the field of electronics and computers due to the complexity and variety of speech
signals and sounds. However, with modern processes, algorithms, and methods we can process
speech signals easily and recognize the text. In this project, we are going to develop an on-line
speech-to-text engine. The system acquires speech at run time through a microphone and
processes the sampled speech to recognize the uttered text. The recognized text can be stored in a
file. We are developing this on android platform using eclipse workbench. Our speech-to-text
system directly acquires and converts speech to text. It can supplement other larger systems,
giving users a different choice for data entry. A speech-to-text system can also improve system
accessibility by providing data entry options for blind, deaf, or physically handicapped users.
Voice SMS is an application developed in this work that allows a user to record and convert
spoken messages into SMS text message. User can send messages to the entered phone number.
Speech recognition is done via the Internet, connecting to Google's server. The application is
adapted to input messages in English. Speech recognition for Voice uses a technique based on
hidden Markov models (HMM - Hidden Markov Model). It is currently the most successful and
most flexible approach to speech recognition.

not for received messages.  Monitor : 15 VGA Colour. if you want to send message.  Coding Language : Java 1. The visually impaired people. message will be converted into text and sent as SMS.4 GHz. In many cases these messengers provide option for sending message.SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS: HARDWARE REQUIREMENTS:  System : Pentium IV 2.  Hard Disk : 40 GB. speak that message.3 ABOVE  IDE : Eclipse EXISTING SYSTEM The current software’s which are in the market for differently abled people. are generally screen reader software’s which force them to use the keys on keyboard. This practice makes it very difficult for them to use those softwares. For sending the message they need to type the message manually and remember the keys. These applications can be used by visually impaired people but many a times they find it difficult to interact. Our project’s aim is to help the differently abled people to interact with other’s through our application. Sometimes we call it as instance messenger in that. Now days may smart messengers are available in Android market which are based on voice to text transmission.  Mouse : Logitech.7  Tool Kit : Android 2. To use this they have to remember so many things such as voice commands or keys.44 Mb.  Ram : 512 Mb. Another important thing in this context is that. these applications are not available in multiple language platforms.  MOBILE : ANDROID SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS:  Operating system : Windows 7.  Floppy Drive : 1. many times .

many times find it difficult to interact with other people through current messaging system. so there is no need of installing application at both the ends. For sending the message they need to type the message manually and remember the keys. And Also it provides voice commendable application for calling . where the user does not need to use the physical touch or press any key for interaction. The visually impaired people. the application provides facility to read message in multiple languages. Also. This was complex for the Blind Users to Operate that systems. are generally screen reader software’s which force them to use the keys on keyboard.find it difficult to interact with other people through current messaging system. PROPOSED SYSTEM Our project’s aim is to help the differently abled people to interact with other’s through our application. the application provides facility to read message in multiple languages. The current software’s which are in the market for differently abled people. Also. This practice makes it very difficult for them to use those software's. As the application is built on top of the SMS layer. so there is no need of installing application at both the ends. DRAWBACKS • The main drawback of the current system was it uses the different screen button system which allows the users to practice the system for prolonged time. The application provides with better user interface and interaction is completely through voice. The application provides with better user interface and interaction is completely through voice. • And also now a days all the systems totally changed into smartphone. As the application is built on top of the SMS layer. where the user does not need to use the physical touch or press any key for interaction.

The application provides total voice interaction i.e. application working is divided in two ways – One application is used for sending messages and other when application is used to read received messages. so it will provide better user interface and interaction facility. the application is divided in to various modules.the peoples with disability. message received notification will be repeated over a period of time. User will interact with application completely through voice commands. i. Also when message is received. application provides option to change language to read message in multiple languages. so that once application is installed on mobile. application provides guide that consists of voice based instructions. In case. for that timer is used for notification of unread messages Application will always be in running state at the background once it is started The application is built on top of SMS. As shown in figure. All notifications and alerts received from SMS are processed in voice by the application. all SMS related activities are by default performed by application. With respect to user perspective. The voice application uses the google voice process for the voice analyzing process. if receiver is not present at time when message is received. in that voice commends are explained to user for performing various operations.e. The main modules are voice to text and text to voice conversion at sender and receiver side respectively. .

Every time the application asks anything. voice command is provided to open application to send message . MODULES DESCRIPTION Reading SMS .For sending message.Once application is open. then it will speak that message to check. it will ask for contact of receiver. then it will ask for the message to be sent. after conforming the message it will send it to corresponding receiver. through voice and user also provides response with voice commands that are told by guide.
