iMIRACLE is a prototype iPad application designed for deaf and hearing impaired people that allows the user search for video content by station, genre, title, or content keywords. People can browse retrieved content, and can watch it on the iPad or on connected televisions. iMIRACLE  also may work for people with physical dexterity disabilities, who cannot "fast forward" through a TV show to the segment they want to watch.


Technical Specifications: 

iMIRACLE uses large vocabulary speech recognition to recognize metadata words (titles, genre, channels, etc.) and content words that occur in recorded programs.

It uses AT&T WATSON for speech recognition to recognize spoken queries and natural language understanding to parse the speech results in order to create the appropriate search query to the video search engine.

It uses the content-based video search engine MIRACLE platform to find recorded programs that meet the search criteria.

It allows users to play back the video on the iPhone/iPad or on a television (TV playback requires either a Microsoft Vista PC or a set top box similar to those deployed with AT&T U-verse).

 New speech models are created daily to handle the constantly changing metadata and vocabulary
