This special issue contains extended versions of selected topical papers from the 19th International Conference on Speech and Computer SPECOM-2017, organized on 12–16 September 2017 in Hatfield, UK. Five extended articles were selected for this special issue, all of which deal with speech-based human–computer communication jointly with visual, textual and/or other interaction modalities. The first three papers study various aspects of multimodal human–computer interaction, and in the remaining two papers, the authors study the video components of audio-visual speech recognition systems. In this editorial, we present an overview of the accepted articles and the selection process.
