User Evaluation and Diary Study
15 user evaluation sessions and a 3-day diary study in collaboration with HomeLab at Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) was completed as a part of this project to evaluate the completed system.
We learned that the system would be most useful for those who find it difficult in hearing other people during face-to-face conversations, but have a good speech ability to carry on the conversation. The system seemed overwhelming, largely due to the lack of familiarity with the user interface paradigms of smartphones and Glass. Reducing the delay in transcription that was perceived by the user improved the experience dramatically.
We also envisioned using the capabilities of the system to caption television audio and/or audio books. But the quality of Speech-to-text varied significantly for practical uses in other cases.
