Thème : Computer-Assisted Pronunciation learning
Présentation : Computer-assisted language teaching is one of the most popular applications in the IT world, an application that has seen many advances. However, this field suffers from a big gap which is the teaching of pronunciation, in recent years timid attempts have tried to remedy this through methods issued from automatic speech recognition.
Thème : Audio (Speech ) Information Retrieval
Présentation : The use of information retrieval tools in the audio stream is essential due to a large amount of audio signal available both on the net and in the databases of various organizations such as television channels or radio stations. While there is no such thing as a "Google" for audio types, many works have been successful in indexing, searching, and browsing the acoustic signals, using the latest advances in automatic speech recognition. However, the field is of paramount of interest and still challenging.
Thème : Automatic Speech Recognition
Présentation : Automatic speech recognition (ASR) is the process of transcribing a speech stream at the input of the system into a sequence of words at the output. Automatic speech recognition favored the rise of large set of applications, affecting the daily life of millions of people around the world. We can predict that speech will increasingly be part of the multimedia interfaces between a user and an automatic system, on the one hand, thanks to the improvement in the robustness of automatic speech recognition systems and, on the other hand, due to the growing public awareness of this little known technology yet.
