Welcome to the comp.speech Frequently Asked Questions WWW site. This site provides a range of information on speech technology, including speech synthesis, speech recognition, speech coding, and related material. The information is regularly posted to the comp.speech newsgroup as the "comp.speech FAQ" posting. This site is mirrored at several other WWW sites around the world (Australia, UK, Japan and USA) and the information is also available in a plain text format.
There are 250 comp.speech WWW pages and they include over 500 hyperlinks to speech technology web sites, ftp servers, mailing lists, and newsgroups.
The comp.speech ftp site is an excellent repository of speech technology information, software and resources. It contains the following (see Question 1.2 for more detail):
Minor changes each month. Thanks to all the companies and individuals who send in information.
Hundreds of people and companies have made contributions to the comp.speech FAQ over the last few years - too many to name individually. Special thanks go to Tony Robinson and Kevin Lenzo who have provided a wide range of information and assistance. Tony Robinson also maintains the comp.speech ftp site which is an excellent resource for all people working with speech technology. I am grateful to the people at Sydney University, Cambridge University, ATR ITL and CMU for supporting the FAQ on their WWW sites.
