____________ASR Language Specialist_____________

Aculab is a leading provider of components and systems for
the Computer Telephony industry. With branches throughout
the World, Aculab's R&D is based in Milton Keynes, UK. Both
Aculab and Milton Keynes are rapidly expanding, providing
an exciting and challenging environment.

Our products include the Prosody(TM) speech processing
platform, running World-class multi-channel speech
recognition and synthesis algorithms.

This post's primary function is to enhance Aculab's isolated
and connected-word speech recognition capability, mostly by
developing phonetic and whole-word models for additional
languages. The work will also involve development of test
harnesses and technology demonstrators.

The successful applicant should be aware of key issues in
speech recognition, phonetics and statistics, but their main
area of expertise will be in C or C++ programming.
Organisational skills are also required, as the post will
include the specification and procurement of speech databases
to fill the needs of a number of concurrent projects.

The post may be suitable for a recent graduate, provided they
can demonstrate the required skills, but further relevant
experience and/or education would be a definite advantage.
