The United States Patent and Trademark Office has approved another Apple patent. The document, called Voice Effects Based on Facial Expressions, talks about animo-ji, supplemented by sound effects.
During the recording phase of a message with a virtual avatar, the software captures facial movements and the sound emanating from the object. According to the patent application, both visual and audio elements are tracked for specific conditions. However, they can be changed during the playback phase to something else. These conditions may include identified facial expressions, such as gloomy, or even trigger words that trigger the effect.
The system creates a variant in accordance with the trigger, and apply it either to the image or to the sound component. An avatar can go through a predefined animation or be changed in a certain way while the emotion is created, while the accompanying speech can be shifted or completely replaced.
Command "voice"
As an example, the portal AppleInsider, which discovered the patent, leads the user with the avatar of a dog. He can say the word "bark", and this will launch the audio file with a bark, and also change the shape of the mouth to the appropriate one. If the user frowns and roars, then the angry and snarling version will replace the cute animo-ji.
Voice recording in some cases can be completely replaced by a synthesized analogue. During this process, the software recognizes individual words, pitch and cadence, which can then be reproduced in the avatar-specific voice.
Obtaining a patent filed by Apple on February 28 does not mean that Apple will ultimately present the technology to the public. But, given that the developers continue to develop it in every way, the appearance of a new item in one of the future updates is quite likely.
