Subject: Progress in Speech Synthesis


 ``PROGRESS IN SPEECH SYNTHESIS'', edited by Jan van Santen, Richard Sproat,
 Joseph Olive (Lucent Technologies Bell Labs), and Julia Hirschberg (AT&T Labs).

 Includes CDROM with sound and video samples, complete text, with full
 hyperlinks and search capability. Windows / Mac / Unix compatible.

 598 Pages, 35 Chapters ($129.00)

 This collection of articles by 80 leading researchers in each of the fields
 involved in text-to-speech synthesis provides a picture of recent work in
 laboratories throughout the world and of the problems and challenges
 that remain. By providing samples of synthesized speech as well as video
 demonstrations for several of the synthesizers discussed, the book will
 also allow the reader to judge what all the work adds up to -- that is,
 how good is the synthetic speech we can now produce?
