A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11881224B2) discloses a multilingual speech recognition and translation method designed for conferences. The method involves receiving audio and video data from attendees at a server, analyzing the data to generate recognition results, splitting the audio data into segments, performing speech recognition based on language family recognition results, translating the text content, and displaying it on terminal apparatus. The method also includes determining the number of speakers and their speaking time, verifying attendee identity, accessing personal libraries for enhanced recognition and translation, and modifying libraries based on user feedback. The system further corrects text content using a reference library of words and phrases.

The patent also describes a server for conferences equipped with audio and video pre-processing modules, speech recognition module, and translation module. The server includes sub-modules for distance detection, face recognition, personal vocabulary capturing, and cloud database service for establishing personal libraries. Additionally, the server features a recognition and correction module for modifying libraries based on user feedback. The system also includes sub-modules for speech feature extraction, people counting, ethnic recognition, activity recognition, and lip recognition to enhance speech recognition and translation accuracy. The server further includes a speaker grouping sub-module to determine speech segments based on various factors like distance, body movement, and facial movement of attendees. Lastly, a word and phrase recognition and correction sub-module corrects text content using a reference library.

In conclusion, the patented method and server system aim to revolutionize multilingual communication in conferences by providing accurate speech recognition, translation, and personalized enhancements based on attendee identity and feedback. The system's advanced features like speaker grouping, personal libraries, and real-time translation contribute to a seamless and efficient conference experience for attendees speaking different languages.
