Content-Based Image Retrieval Process for Speech Annotated Digital Images

Project Code :TMAPG19


In this paper, a new indexing and retrieval system for digital pictures has been presented with speech notes based on syllable-converted picture-like samples.


In this work, a new retrieval system for digital images has been presented which is based on speech to text conversion and customized bag-of-features workflow. Growing number of customers with huge of digital images in their computers, retrieving of images has become vital trouble in management of virtual photographs. Here, we will discuss about the Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR) which is implemented in two phases. 

One is conversion of speech to text using third party cloud component called pocket sphinx, which is implemented on Python. Second phase is the retrieval of images using customized bag-of-features, which is implemented on Matlab. Our work will gives best results when compared to existing methods.

Keywords: Image Retrieval, Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR), Speech to text conversion, Bag-of-features.
