Language Technologies Research Centre - Speech Lab

The purpose of speech is communication, and the research in this area primarily deals with processing, representation of speech signal to develop voice based interfaces for human-computer interaction. Such natural interfaces enable access to information via hands-free mode to literate, illiterate as well as vision impaired people. The objective of Speech Processing Lab is to conduct goal oriented basic research, and thus we address fundamental issues involved in building robust speech-to-text systems, natural sounding text-to-speech systems, spoken/audio information retrieval, language identification, speaker recognition and emotion recognition using speech.
