Part of the Executive Guides book series (3233)


In this chapter we are going to describe some of the more scientific aspects of speech recognition. These topics describe a broader aspect than just the products that are selling now. These subjects have been presented in a manner that, I hope, can be understood by the non-technical reader. The topics are as follows:
  1. 1

    Major design questions facing speech recognition engineers

  2. 2

    Microphone technology

  3. 3

    Sound card technology

  4. 4

    Database searching and template matching

  5. 5

    Speech recognition using neural networks

  6. 6

    The use of artificial intelligence in speech systems
