About this book


This book provides an introduction to the rapidly developing area of speech technology. It covers the entire spectrum of the subjects, ranging from speech analysis and speech synthesis through to automatic speech recognition and speech coding. The emphasis is mainly on the signal processing aspects of speech and the treatment is primarily descriptive and illustrative, with the mathematical content being kept to a minimum.
