Speech Technology and Localisation

Tucker, Roger C.F.; Hickey, Marianne; Haddock, Nick


Keyword(s): speech-as-data; speech recognition; speech compression; voice dialogue systems

Abstract: This paper addresses two aspects of speech technology. The first is the use of speech rather than text as the media for information representation in a computer - since speech needs no localization this approach reduces localization barriers and is also simpler for people with low levels of literacy - but to help organize the speech, tools are needed which allow quick and easy access to the speech-as-data records. The second aspect is the voice dialogue system, which allows information access by telephone - for this localization is necessary, and approaches to this are briefly discussed. Notes: Nick Haddock, Consultant working with HP
