Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The past decade has been highlighted by the emerging technology of multimedia interface design. Intelligent multimedia interfaces can be developed that require very little computer sophistication on the part of the user. This chapter focuses on speech recognition systems applied to multimedia human-machine interfaces. There are a number of speech recognition systems on the market today, and some of them can be integrated into task-specific applications. However, speech recognition research still faces a few challenges in the area of multimedia human-machine interfaces. This chapter presents some approaches based on neural networks for Mandarin speech recognition. In practical applications, a robust Mandarin speech recognition system (VenusDictate) applied to multimedia interfaces is described.
