speech or audio processing system that accomplishes a simple or even a complex task—e.g., pitch detection, voiced-unvoiced detection, speech/silence classification, speech synthesis, speech recognition, speaker recognition, helium speech restoration, speech coding, MP3 audio coding, etc. • Every student is also required to make a 10-minute
read speech nize than humans speaking to humans. Read speech, in which humans are reading out loud, for example in audio books, is also relatively easy to recognize. Recog-conversational nizing the speech of two humans talking to each other in conversational speech, speech for example, for transcribing a business meeting, is the hardest.
The Speech Chain 1. (planning) → articulation → acoustics → audition → perception (from Denes & Pinson, 1993) -traditional areas of phonetic study speech production – how people plan and execute speech movements speech perception – auditory perception speech acoustics – general theory of acoustics (particularly in a tube) 2.
Speech therapy is the treatment of defects and disorders of speech and language disorders. Prior to the initiation of speech therapy, a comprehensive evaluation of the patient and his or her speech and language potential is generally required before a full treatment plan is formulated. As part of the evaluation, standardized assessment
Assessment of the Speech Mechanism is a two-fold process 1. Determine the Structural Integrity of the speech mechanism: – administer an oral peripheral exam – determine size, shape, and adequacy of structures for non-speech + speech-related purposes
gions. The speech dominated time-frequency components of are considered reliable estimates of clean speech. S(t,f) is the clean speech that could have been observed if the signal was not corrupted with noise. The noise dominated time-frequency components N(t,f) are considered unreliable, they only provide a upper bound on the speech values

the sounds of the speech – very long duration windows correspond to narrowband lowpass filters – want E n to change at a rate comparable to the changing sounds of the speech => this is the essential conflict in all speech processing, namely we need short duration window to be responsive to rapid sound changes, but
