A study of digital speech processing, synthesis and recognition. This second edition contains new sections on the international standardization of robust and flexible speech coding techniques, waveform unit concatenation-based speech synthesis, large vocabulary continuous-speech recognition based on statistical pattern recognition, and more.
". . .provides a solid introduction to the basics of digital signal processing for speech and provides a comprehensive overview of classic recognition techniques. It would be ideal as a primary textbook."
