    Aims and Scope


    The International Journal of Speech Technology is a research journal that focuses on speech technology and its applications. It promotes research and description on all aspects of speech input and output, including theory, experiment, testing, base technology, applications.

    The journal is an international forum for the dissemination of research related to the applications of speech technology as well as to the technology itself as it relates to real-world applications. Articles describing original work in all aspects of speech technology are included. Sample topics include but are not limited to the following:

    applications employing digitized speech, synthesized speech or automatic speech recognition
    technological issues of speech input or output
    human factors, intelligent interfaces, robust applications
    integration of aspects of artificial intelligence and natural language processing
    international and local language implementations of speech synthesis and recognition
    development of new algorithms
    interface description techniques, tools and languages
    testing of intelligibility, naturalness and accuracy
    computational issues in speech technology
    software development tools
    speech-enabled robotics
    speech technology as a diagnostic tool for treating language disorders
    voice technology for managing serious laryngeal disabilities
    the use of speech in multimedia

    This is the only journal which presents papers on both the base technology and theory as well as all varieties of applications. It encompasses all aspects of the three major technologies: text-to-speech synthesis, automatic speech recognition and stored (digitized) speech.
