  3. 3. Reading, spelling and silent speech: Exploring literacy in children with severe speech and physical impairment

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Geson

  5. 5. From Acoustics to Articulation Study of the acoustic-articulatory relationship along with methods to normalize and adapt to variations in production across different speakers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Gopal Ananthakrishnan; KTH.; [2011]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Acoustic-Articulatory relationship; speaker normalization;

    Abstract : The focus of this thesis is the relationship between the articulation ofspeech and the acoustics of produced speech. There are several problems thatare encountered in understanding this relationship, given the non-linearity,variance and non-uniqueness in the mapping, as well as the differences thatexist in the size and shape of the articulators, and consequently the acoustics,for different speakers.
