From the Ted Talk "Denise Herzing: Could we speak the language of dolphins?"

Unscramble the Blue Letters

And because of this, we really decided we needed some more hposeisatidct technology. So we joined forces with regoaig Tech, with Thad Starner's wearable computing group, to build us an underwater wearable computer that we're calling CHAT. [CHAT: aencaetc Hearing And Telemetry] Now, instead of pushing a kbroayde through the water, the diver's wearing the eteopmlc system, and it's oaistccu only, so basically the diver activates the sounds on a keypad on the forearm, the sounds go out through an underwater speaker, if a dolphin mimics the whistle or a human plays the whistle, the sounds come in and are localized by two srdhnphyoeo. The computer can aolleicz who requested the toy if there's a word match. And the real power of the system is in the real-time sound gncoroienti, so we can respond to the dolphins quickly and accurately.

Original Text

And because of this, we really decided we needed some more sophisticated technology. So we joined forces with Georgia Tech, with Thad Starner's wearable computing group, to build us an underwater wearable computer that we're calling CHAT. [CHAT: Cetacean Hearing And Telemetry] Now, instead of pushing a keyboard through the water, the diver's wearing the complete system, and it's acoustic only, so basically the diver activates the sounds on a keypad on the forearm, the sounds go out through an underwater speaker, if a dolphin mimics the whistle or a human plays the whistle, the sounds come in and are localized by two hydrophones. The computer can localize who requested the toy if there's a word match. And the real power of the system is in the real-time sound recognition, so we can respond to the dolphins quickly and accurately.
