  • I think forum moderators should have moved you to the audio Kinect forum by now. But you can get the audio part from Kinect recognized as a normal microphone and put it through any speech application including TTS (text to speech) ones. You might be able to combine with face tracker for improved accuracy (its a theory but is more likely to produce very good accuracy).

    Note: later if someone comes up with code for my theory you can still mark multiple answers. Also, if this is helpful you can mark it helpful.

     it takes me a awhile but I can look through your code and will have access to educational versions of software available at my college I go to (I work at a K-12 as an IT and working on some Kinect implementations and so your project interests me).

  • Is this automation software? If you have some documentation I can help after I finish my Kinect multipoint project.  Any more information on labview?

    if you wish to talk more about your source but not openly I have an email: jefferycarlson@gmail.com

    I will need documentation for the labview program though. I seem to remember a home automation system made with Kinect from scratch somewhere.

    thanks for your answer. the audio part I only did little things:

    i use the harmonic distortion analyzer VI to acquire fundamental frequency and to tell whether the baby crying. but I want it can identify the baby cry more accurately. and in another project of mine, i want to do face recognition, not only face tracking. And I have had some examples on facetracking.

  • Yes, it looks like putting through another application is helping some but when combined with face tracking you can tell whether the baby is crying or not by his facial expressions too.
