Book Description

Written by the world's top experts in the field, this multidisciplinary book explores all phases of speech technology. Topics covered include:

  • Conversion of computerized (keyboarded) text into synthesized speech, aimed at developing "talking computers"
  • Development of automatic speech recognition, allowing electronic devices to process verbal commands
  • Speech training and the use of synthesized speech for the hearing- and speech-impaired

  • In-depth discussions of specific speech technologies are included, as well as a treatment of the issues and challenges of human-computer interfaces. Oriented toward state-of-the-art applications, the book emphasizes the practical utilization of emerging technologies and includes numerous case studies.
