Focusing on human computers via speech technology, this title covers such issues as dialogue, design, error correction, feedback and the use of speech technology with other I/O media (keyboards, mice, touch screens etc). Although the application of speech technology is not widespread, "Interactive Speech Technology" contends that human factors/ergonomics input could radically change this, by developing ways in which speech technology can be made truly interactive. This book focuses on three main areas - recognition, production and dialogue. Contributions come from centres of excellence in both academia and industry, and presents a state of the art review, opening up a forum for discussion on fundamental issues which should survive the inevitable changes in actual hard and software technologies.
Speech output; voice output for human-machine interaction; speech as an interface; is voice control the right answer for the avionics environment?; voice as a medium for document annotation; feedback in automatic speech recognition - who is saying what and to whom?; data-entry by voice - facilitating correction of misrecognitions; evaluating interactive speech technology; design guidelines for using speech in interactive multimedia systems.
