Description

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.
