20110191107 - Structure for grammar and dictionary representation in voice recognition and method for simplifying link and node-generated grammars: A speech recognition engine is provided with an acoustic model and a layered grammar and dictionary library. The layered grammar and dictionary library includes a language and non-grammar layer that supplies types of rules a grammar definition layer can use and defines non-grammar the speech recognition engine should ignore. The... Agent: Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
20110191108 - Remote controller with position actuatated voice transmission: A method of operation of a remote controller consistent with certain implementations involves determining a spatial orientation of the remote controller based upon an output signal from a position detector; and setting a voice mode of operation of the remote controller as active or inactive based upon the spatial orientation...

20110191113 - Method and apparatus for canonical nonlinear analysis of audio signals: The present invention is directed to systems and methods designed to ascertain the structure of acoustic signals. The approach involves an alternative transform of an acoustic input signal, utilizing a network of nonlinear oscillators in which each oscillator is tuned to a distinct frequency. Each oscillator receives input and interacts... Agent: Florida Atlantic University Research Corporation
20110191110 - Multi-parameter physical audio signal decoding system: A multi-parameter physical audio signal decoding system includes an audio capturing device, a signal pre-processor, a signal decoder, a data modulator and a display device. The audio capturing device receives audio signals, and transforms them into digital signals in real time. The digital signals are transmitted to the signal pre-processor....
