Description

From University Video Communications' catalog:

"In the past, text had to be perfect to be intelligible and sound natural when converted to computer speech. In this lecture, Bathsheba Malsheen defines text-to-speech technology, its commercial implications, levels of application complexity and application specific improvements. With the latest advances in text-to-speech technology, even poorly formatted and ungrammatical text, such as email messages, can be preprocessed through a set of context-sensitive rules which expand abbreviations and short forms to achieve a satisfactory result."
