Examines new and advanced deployments of speech in healthcare, call centers and mobile settings

Advances in Speech Recognition provides a forum for today’s speech technology industry leaders – drawn from private enterprise and from academic institutions all over the world – to discuss the challenges, advances and aspirations of voice technology, which has become part of the working machinery of everyday life for consumers, corporations and healthcare providers both in the military and in the private sector.
This anthology is divided into three sections – mobile environments, call centers and clinics – representing the research findings of over 30 industry experts: speech engineers, system designers, linguists, IT (information technology) and MIS (management information systems) specialists. Advances in Speech Recognition is introduced by speech industry icons Judith Markowitz and Bill Scholz who jointly wrote the book’s foreword. The book ends with a powerful coda by Jim Larson, who brilliantly forecasts in his epilogue the promises and, sometimes, the perils of advanced speech recognition technology.
Advances in Speech Recognition is a useful book for speech software developers, speech engineers and others in the field of speech technology.
