Speech in Mobile and Pervasive EnvironmentseBook - 2012
Speech in Mobile and Pervasive Environments addresses the issues related to speech processing onresource-constrained mobile devices. These include speechrecognition in noisy environments, specialised hardware for speechrecognition and synthesis, the use of context to enhancerecognition and user experience, and the emerging softwarestandards required for interoperability. This book takes amulti-disciplinary look at these matters, while offering an insightinto the opportunities and challenges of speech processing inmobile environs. In developing regions, speech-on-mobile is set toplay a momentous role, socially and economically; the authorsdiscuss how voice-based solutions and applications offer acompelling and natural solution in this setting.
Key FeaturesProvides a holistic overview of all speech technology relatedtopics in the context of mobility Brings together the latest research in a logically connectedway in a single volume Covers hardware, embedded recognition and synthesis,distributed speech recognition, software technologies, contextualinterfaces Discusses multimodal dialogue systems and their evaluation Introduces speech in mobile and pervasive environments fordeveloping regions
