Abstract

Computer synthesis of natural speech is one of the major objectives for researchers as well as linguists. The technology furnishes plenty of functional applications for human-computer interaction. This paper describes the procedure and logic for implementation of a software application that uses the technology of conversion of Speech to Text and Text to Speech synthesis. Basically, its a software application which will recognize the word spoken by the user using the microphone and the corresponding meaning will be delivered through the computer speaker. We measured the performance of the application with different main memory size, processor clock speed, L1 and L2 cache line sizes. Further, this paper demonstrates the various factors on which the application shows the highest efficiency and providing the suitable environment for it. At the end, the paper describes the major use of the application and future work included for the same.
