Quran Companion – A helping tool for Huffaz

Muhammad Rafi


Abstract— This paper presents work on a novel and innovative mobile application for Huffaz who find it difficult to maintain their Hifz in professional life. It is because they require a partner (Hafiz) who can listen to their recitation of Quran and correct it (if required). An application that listens Quran recitation and indicate mistakes (if any) with a feedback mechanism for their correction can solve the problem. A variety of methods related to Speech Recognition and Supervised Learning have been explored to develop such an invention. The way is to compare the input (speech) with standard (speech or text), outputting the status. However, the accuracy level obtained this way is not very reliable. Even so, it is inferable that this extraordinary application is a major step towards effective human-computer interaction. It is important to note that this experimentation is not concerned with teaching people how to recite Quran but with helping people (who already know how to recite Quran) to memorize and revise the Quran in a better way.
