 TELECOMMUNICATIONS SERVICES USING SPEECH AND LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGIES

The Guest Editors for this special issue are Sara H. Basson, Ph.D.,

and customer service bureaus.
Papers submitted for this special issue should either:

Relevant technologies for this special issue include: speech recognition,
speech processing, language understanding, text-to-speech synthesis, and
speaker verification. The papers should identify key features accounting
for the success or failure of these services, and also offer insights about
the unique challenges of working within this arena.
