Speech Communication Laboratory

Location: 
3180 A.V. Williams Building

Research at the Speech Communication Lab focuses on combining the principles of science with the innovation of engineering to solve problems in speech and related areas. The emphasis of research is on understanding the principles of speech production and perception, and applying these principles in the development of acoustic parameters that will enable machines to automatically identify speakers or recognize speech. Research is also aimed at enhancing the quality of speech for such applications. All the projects are headed by Dr. Carol Espy-Wilson, the director of the Speech Communication Lab.
