Speech Technologies: Language Variation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther chapter contribution

Abstract / Description of output

Spoken language technologies, such as automatic speech recognition, must often deal with speech from many speakers and in a wide variety of situations. Variation in speech usually creates serious difficulties for such systems. This chapter looks at the many sources of variation in speech: within a single speaker, across speakers and languages, and in external factors.
