Applications for Speech Synthesis and Recognition

Trudy Howles
Department of Computer Science
Rochester Institute of Technology


In the late '90's, Sun released an initial version of the Java Speech API (JSAPI). This API was designed to uniformly implement speech applications using commercial off the shelf (COTS) software to leverage existing speech research. Software partners have leveraged speech research advances in recognition (interpreting spoken words) and synthesis (text to speech processing).

This colloquium will be a high-level assessment of the work resulting from a recent FEAD grant, including an overview of:
