This book is a comprehensive guide on building systems that interact with the user via speech as well as other modalities. The fundamentals of speech recognition, text -to-speech and dialog processing will be discussed as components present in a Spoken Language System. The book will be structured in two parts, with the first part including the principles of the basic disciplines needed, and the second part explaining the different speech technologies. This is the definitive book on spoken language systems written by the people at Microsoft Research who have developed the voice-activated technologies that will be imbedded in Windows 2000 and other key Microsoft products of the future. This is not a Microsoft book, however, this is a book on the science and linguistics of this technology and how to use it in developing and building hardware and software products.
