Google indicated in May that it was working on a speech recognition program to cater to people with an impediment or a different speaking patter, Google named the initiative Project Euphonia. Recently Google has released more information on how the AI system will be able to better serve those who need it. The system used a voice recognition system that was altered to train the system to work with a broader range of people.
Project Euphonia looks to correct speech recognition systems that were trained mostly using 'typical' speech patterns. Exposing speech recognition systems to those with different speaking patterns is then able to help the system identify and better serve a wider range of users.
