The speech research and development needs a special interdisciplinary way of thinking. The members of our laboratory are keen on the collection of the necessary knowledge of psychoacoustics, linguistics, physics, bio-physics, mathematics and informatics. We are in a good cooperation with specialists working in these fields. In our developments we follow the point of view of engineers. The main areas are: basic acoustics-phonetics research, data-base construction, isolated word recognition, continuous speech recognition, speech enhancement in noisy speech, and development of sound tools for handicapped, etc.
The research of speech requires a special interdisciplinary thinking. Researchers of the Laboratory of Speech Acoustics has expertise of psychoacoustics, linguistics, physics, math and informatics. Research topics: artificial intelligence solutions in healthcare, pathological and mental disorders in speech, forensic voice comparison, basic acoustic-phonetic research, database creation.
