There are many mobile web browsers are available currently to access the internet. Under this section, the features found in the other mobile web browsers are described. Further the drawbacks of the other mobile web browser systems are also analyzed.

But still none of them got the feature of text to voice and voice to text feature.


Research Gap


So as you have seen above, many different web browsers available for smart phones with many features. So the gap this project is trying to cover is the Voice to Text and Text to Voice which is not available on any web browser together. And also especially the text to voice, in other word the web site reading function is not available in any web browser. So by implementing these features in this project we are expecting to save the time of the user for reading the web page and typing to search in google.


So with voice commands and reading features we can provide the user some easiness.


Research Questions


The main problem addressed by this research project is mobile browsers face some difficulties when downloading some files. for example while downloading some files through mobile browsers if the internet connection get disconnected, the download will stop & when it's get the connection again it'll start the download from the starting point.It will not start the download from the point it stopped. To avoid these kind of problem our research team is going to implement a feature. It is called Resume Download. This feature will be the correct solution for this problem. When we are downloading some files if the internet connection gets disconnected, the download will pause and at the same time when it gets the internet connection again it will not start from the starting point, it will start from where it has stopped earlier. This is the main function of this feature.


Our research team identified some other problems too, those are, mobile web browser users finding it difficult to type words in mobile web browser, finding difficulties to read the words which contains in mobile web browser. To avoid these kind of problem our research team aim to do Voice to Text and Text to Voice mobile features. Those who feel lazy, drive vehicle and Vision Impaired people if they feel hard to type words through mobile web browser Voice to Text option will be the solution for the problem. And the user can do multiple task with text to speech, that means he can hear the web browser reading the web page for him while he do other stuffs. Also designing and adding features to support the vision impaired people, like a big dictate button and voice direction so that it says to the user where the user is and what action he is doing and voice activating all functions in the web browser. But this Research Question will be covered in future, some of them are covered here although this research is out of the boundary line of our current research.



Above figure describes the overview diagram for the voice activated mobile web browser. Three main features will be implemented in the web browser which are Speech to Text, Text to Speech and Resume capable downloading .


The Speech to Text feature is intended to recognize certain words of the human voice and instruct the web browse to carry out the pre-defined tasks which is assigned for that recognized word.


The Text to Speech feature is intended to read out a web page which is currently loaded to the web browser to the user. The browser will identify the relevant part of the web page which has the necessary information and read it to the mobile phone user.


The Resume downloading feature is intended to make downloading files more convenient for the mobile phone user. There is a great possibility that when downloading a file, the download may fail due to some reason. The resume downloading feature will be tracking down the currently downloading files. If the download stops due to some reason, the download manager will be able to resume the download from where it has stopped.
