Commercial applications of speech processing and recognition are fast becoming a growth industry that will shape the next decade. Now students and practicing engineers of signal processing can find in a single volume the fundamentals essential to understanding this rapidly developing field. IEEE Press is pleased to publish a classic reissue of Discrete--Time Processing of Speech Signals. Specially featured in this reissue is the addition of valuable World Wide Web links to the latest speech data references. This landmark book offers a balanced discussion of both the mathematical theory of digital speech signal processing and critical contemporary applications. The authors provide a comprehensive view of all major modern speech processing areas: speech production physiology and modeling, signal analysis techniques, coding, enhancement, quality assessment, and recognition. You will learn the principles needed to understand advanced technologies in speech processing ---- from speech coding for communications systems to biomedical applications of speech analysis and recognition.
Ideal for self--study or as a course text, this far--reaching reference book offers an extensive historical context for concepts under discussion, end--of--chapter problems, and practical algorithms. Discrete--Time Processing of Speech Signals is the definitive resource for students, engineers, and scientists in the speech processing field. An Instructora s Manual presenting detailed solutions to all the problems in the book is available upon request from the Wiley Makerting Department.
