Speech and audio processing

T Technical Teaching


  • Give the students a general knowledge of the most important communication mode : speech.
  • Speech is used to communicate with machines this is speech recognition. Machine can generate artificial speech : this is speech synthesis. Speech must be compressed for two different reasons : reduce the memory required in storage systems and allow low bit rate transmission (f.i in GSM systems). Speech can also be used in biometrics : speaker identification and verification. In the media, speech and soundtracks as well as recorded work sessions can be automatically analyse and speech is a part of the indexing applications.
