We present the development of an audiovisual array that enables hearing aid users to converse with multiple speakers in reverberant environments with significant speech babble noise where their hearing aids do not function well. The system concept consists of a smartphone, a smartphone accessory, and a smartphone software application. The smartphone accessory concept is a multi-microphone audiovisual array in a form factor that allows attachment to the back of the smartphone. The accessory will also contain a lower power radio by which it can transmit audio signals to compatible hearing aids. The smartphone software application concept will use the smartphone's built in camera to acquire images and perform real-time face detection using the built-in face detection support of the smartphone. The audiovisual beamforming algorithm uses the location of talking targets to improve the signal to noise ratio and consequently improve the user's speech intelligibility. Since the proposed array system leverages a handheld consumer electronic device, it will be portable and low cost. A PC based experimental system was developed to demonstrate the feasibility of an audiovisual multi-microphone array and these results are presented.
