“A computer interface that can transcribe words that the user verbalizes internally but does not actually speak aloud.”

Silently speak to a computer interface

According to MIT News, researchers were able to develop a computer interface that is able to transcribe words mentally verbalised but not openly spoken so that you can "speak" with a computer system.

The device also includes a pair of bone-conduction headphones, which transmit vibrations through the bones of the face to the inner ear. Because they don’t obstruct the ear canal, the headphones enable the system to convey information to the user without interrupting conversation or otherwise interfering with the user’s auditory experience.

The device is thus part of a complete silent-computing system that lets the user undetectably pose and receive answers to difficult computational problems. In one of the researchers’ experiments, for instance, subjects used the system to silently report opponents’ moves in a chess game and just as silently receive computer-recommended responses.
