Processing Speed Acceleration of an Intelligent Communication Instrument
This paper makes an attempt to improve the retrieving algorithm for an intelligent communication instrument. The instrument is developed for visually impaired computer users, and it converts texts displayed on a computer screen into audio messages to help them operate the computer. The conversion is performed based on a user dictionary, and a retrieving algorithm is needed to search the dictionary. In order to accelerate the retrieving speed, we adopt an index table when retrieving the first two alphabets of a word in the dictionary. The time for retrieving words is measured in the experiments. The experimental results reveal that the retrieving operations can be finished within an acceptable time.
