Lip recognition system in making

Written transcipts of videoed converstions coming

A lip-reading system that converts videos of conversations into written transcripts is being developed by researchers from the University of East Anglia's (UEA's) School of Computing Sciences and Surrey University.

Dr Richard Harvey, a Professor at UEA, hopes a prototype will emerge within two years.

Software to track face and lip movements has already been developed, and the team is now working on building a library of videos in order to create a database of facial expressions and lip movements used for each letter combination.

The research is funded by England's Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
