"Speech processing is a topic which combines numerous fields of scientific and technological study. These include speech analysis and variable rate coding for storage or transmission of speech, as well as speech synthesis (especially from text), speech recognition (including speaker and language identification) and spoken language understanding." This book addresses critical issues within the discipline, such as: how to implement speech production and perception systems; how to synthesize and understand speech using state-of-the-art methods in signal processing; pattern recognition; stochastic modeling; computational linguistics; and human factor studies.
