Speech and Language Resources within Speech Recognition and Synthesis Systems for Serbian and Kindred South Slavic Languages

  • Conference paper

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNAI,volume 8113)

Abstract

Unlike other new technologies, most speech technologies are heavily language dependent and have to be developed separately for each language. The paper gives a detailed description of speech and language resources for Serbian and kindred South Slavic languages developed during the last decade within joint projects of the Faculty of Technical Sciences, Novi Sad, Serbia and the company “AlfaNum”. It points out the advantages of simultaneous development of speech synthesis and recognition as complementary speech technologies, and discusses the possibility of reuse of speech and language resources across kindred languages.
