About the book

Speech recognition is one of the most important topics in the field of computer science and electrical engineering. Natural speech, when it is received through a sensor, e.g. a microphone, has to undergo a series of speech processing steps for us to completely recognize it.

The steps include, but are not limited to:

(1) preprocessing to remove interference like noise or music,

(2) source separation (if any),

(3) segmentation, windowing, etc.,

(4) feature extraction,

(5) use of machine learning technique to classify or recognize speech.

Moreover, human-computer interaction through speech is one of the most difficult tasks. This is because each human being speaks in different ways in the presence of noise by following or not following the grammatical structure of the language. This makes it difficult to completely understand or recognize it.

This book is intended for those who would like to present their research and who are working in the area of speech recognition. This book contains a detailed overview of speech recognition techniques and advanced level research carried out by researchers from reputed institutions.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nera Butigan

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors, and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing or reviewing. I assist authors in preparing their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines to ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
