Noisy Book

by Lumen Digital

Noisy Book was launched in September 2019, and is an App designed to empower young children to enjoy reading physical books, and to help them become amazing storytellers.

Noisy Book listens as you read a story, and automatically makes amazing sound effects and beautiful transcriptions. It's a truly magical experience, using just the power of your voice and nothing else. It works with any book or even just your imagination.

It uses the latest in Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing to understand not just what you say, but how you say it. This lets the App render a real-time transcription of your speech, with the font and text responding to your voice inflexions and speech saliency. It's like you are writing our own book but simply with the power of your voice.

Not only that, but Noisy Book understands the actors, objects, locations and events that are happening in your story, and can create a dynamic quiz based on your story. This promotes recall in young minds, and encourages them to pay attention during story time - plus it's a lof of fun!

Noisy Book is truly a ground breaking concept, and the innovation has led to teachers all over the world using it in their classrooms. It may look simple on the outside, but that is all part of the magic - Noisy Book have developed their own machine learning models and language processing techniques to push the envelope of speech recognition and understanding on a mobile device.

Oh - and Noisy Book works in 7 different languages.
