Providing an overview of international work in this interdisciplinary field, this book gives the reader a panoramic view of both early and current research in NLP. Carefully chosen multilingual examples present the state of the art of a mature field which is in a constant state of evolution. In four chapters, this book presents the fundamental concepts of phonetics and phonology and the two most important applications in the field of speech processing: recognition and synthesis. Also presented are the fundamental concepts of corpus linguistics and the basic concepts of morphology and its NLP applications such as stemming and part of speech tagging. The fundamental notions and the most important syntactic theories are presented, as well as the different approaches to syntactic parsing with reference to cognitive models, algorithms and computer applications.

Telecommunications Relay Services to Assist Persons with Hearing or Speech Disabilities

Telecommunications Relay Services to Assist Persons with Hearing or Speech Disabilities

Author: Jason Graham Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/12/2015

Since 2002, the overall minutes of use and costs for the Telecommunications Relay Service (TRS) program have grown significantly due to the advent of Internet-based forms of TRS and increased usage by the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities. TRS allows persons with hearing or speech disabilities to place and receive telephone calls, often with the help of a communications assistant who acts as a translator or facilitator between the two parties having the conversation. FCC is the steward of the TRS program and the federal TRS Fund, which reimburses TRS providers. This book examines, among other things, changes in TRS services and costs since 2002; FCC's TRS performance goals and measures and how they compare with key characteristics of successful performance goals and measures; and the extent to which the design of the program's internal control system identifies and considers program risks.
