    The Human Media Interaction group of the University of Twente has developed a User Engagment and Floor Control Demonstrator, a system that uses modules for online speech recognition, real-time visual focus of attention as well as a module that signals who is being addressed by the speaker. A built-in keyword spotter allows an automatic meeting assistant to call the remote participant’s attention when a topic of interest is raised, pointing at the transcription of the fragment to help him catch-up.
