INTEGRATING IPTV AND SOCIAL NETWORKING WITH VOICE INPUT
Syed Hussain, Afshana Hussain
Elderly people comprise the highest proportion of television viewers. Elderly people often struggle with new technology and reject it due to complexity. We propose a system to help people keep up with certain new technologies, such as IPTV and social networks with reduced efforts. We specifically propose a system to integrate IPTV with Twitter, a social networking website with an aid of a mobile phone. The system uses speech to text technology on mobile phone, as input to reduce the difficulty involved in the interaction with Twitter, while viewing television. As speech is a more convenient and natural way of expression than text, we anticipate that people from other age groups can also benefit from the system.
