Better snoring detection


From Robert Fletcher on 2015/08/25 05:31:40 +0000

When I go over my sound recordings from the night before, there is a lot of snoring, but rarely is it actually tagged as such. It would be great if the accuracy of snoring detection could be increased so the anti snoring feature would be more useful. As is, I’ve actually heard it more when I’m rustling around in bed before sleep or talking to my wife, and only woken up to it once or twice when I have actually been snoring.

Hi all, using SaA for a week or so, I've noticed that it does record my bed cracking as snoring … should I send the bed cracking (me moving during the night, therefore being interpretated as light sleep ?) to this email ?
Thks ! Éric

+Sanda… we already have that implemented, but please note that percentage is the noise level in general in your room, but we measure snoring in minutes, whenever you tag a noise #snore we add those minutes…

A fix i thought about is to adjust the snoring percent when we tag or delete the tag on recordings.

A way to detect between my snoring and my husband snoring would be great! Right now it seems his snoring is louder than mine but if it could somehow let me know of only my snoring. Maybe I should get him a watch too so it will stop his snoring :slight_smile:

Many tanks that would be great, we are collecting new samples all the time and after a while we always do a new machine learning round before we implement this into the app…

I have the same problem. Hardly any of my snoring is detected.

I shall save up my recordings for a week or two, and send them to you (via a link).

@Pawel, what about dropbox or similar and a link on my email Would that work?

How do we share the samples with you?


Agree with the other users in this thread!

When I listen to the sound recordings, there is a lot of snoring, but quite a few is tagged as “snoring”.
What’s more - and strange - in the sound recordings:

  1. Many cases the sound level of the undetected snoring is actually quite high! Why is NO anti-snoring alarm if the sound level is high? And it’s very audible snoring.
  2. The application DOES start the anti snoring sound and vibration in cases when there is no snoring and just a silent breath sound! Why?
  3. I usually then listen and manually tag the recordings with the “snoring” tag.
    Does this manual tag help the application? What happens with the manual tagging? Besides, the app shows more percentage of snoring at the graphs.

Thanks for the answer in advance!
