Written for a broad range of nontechnical professionals who need a better understanding of computer speech technology, this book is the first to provide a truly understandable nontechnical overview of all the major areas in the computer processing of human speech. The book's intuitive approach uses illustrations, analogies, and both historical and state-of-the-art descriptions to explain relatively profound concepts.
