With the increasing impact of information technology on daily life the problems of communication between humans and information-processing machines is of growing importance. This heavily reworked new edition of "Speech Synthesis and Recognition" is an easy-to-read introduction to the subjects of the generation and interpretation of speech by machines. It is written for those who have no experience but who wish to specialise in the area, and is also for professionals in related fields who need to understand enough about the speech technology to be able to apply techniques developed by others, and to be able to work effectively with specialists. In contrast to most other books on speech technology algorithms, it has been deliberately designed to require a minimal mathematical background.show more
