Abstract:

Continued progress in Speech Technology in the face of ever-increasing
demands on the performance levels of applications is a challenge to the
whole speech and language science community. Robust recognition and
understanding of spontaneous speech in varied environments, good
comprehensibility and naturalness of expressive speech synthesis are goals
that cannot be achieved without a change of paradigm. This book argues for
interdisciplinary communication and cooperation in problem-solving in
general, and discusses the interaction between speech and language
engineering and phonetics in particular. With a number of reports on
innovative speech technology research as well as more theoretical
discussions, it addresses the practical, scientific and sometimes the
philosophical problems that stand in the way of cross-disciplinary
collaboration and illuminates some of the many possible ways forward.

Audience: Researchers and professionals in speech technology and
computational linguists.
