The OLP (Ortho-Logo-Paedia) project aims at improving the quality of life of
persons with articulatory impairments by applying a novel technological aid to
speech therapy, by integrating this training with speech recognition technology
and by making these facilities available over the Internet.
The OLP (Ortho-Logo-Paedia) project aims at applying a method to supplement (but not
replace) speech therapy for specific disorders at the articulation level based on an integrated
computer-based system together with automatic speech recognition and distance learning.
The key features of the project are: (a) therapy based on real-time audio-visual feedback of
client's speech; (b) speech production evaluation and interfacing to assistive technology
provided through automatic speech recognition; and (c) web services to provide remote
collaboration and data collection for analysis and evaluation in diverse conditions.
The OLP project is an
EU Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources project, coordinated by
the Institute for Language and Speech Processing, Athens, Greece, with participation
from France (Arches), Greece (Altec S.A. and Logos Centre for Speech-Voice
Pathology), Spain (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid), Sweden (KTH), and the
UK (Sheffield University and Barnsley District General Hospital).
