The goal of the course was to present a general overview of real applications of speech technologies. The topics of the course, developed by specialists from research centers, universities, and leading industries on speech technologies, were chosen with that goal in mind. Those topics include applications such as speaker adaptation, the L2F Broadcast News Speech Recognition System, Text-to-voice recognition and conversion at Google, biometric applications of speech processing and text to voice conversion applications.
