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.
