Full Description
Designing Human Interface in Speech Technology bridges a gap between the needs of the technical engineer and cognitive researchers working in the multidisciplinary area of speech technology applications. The approach is systematic and the focus is on the utility of developing and designing speech related products. Included is coverage of topics such as neuroscience on the multimodal cortex, cognitive theories on multi-task performance, stress and workload, as well as human information process theory and ecological interface design theory for evaluating speech-related human-system interfaces. Of special emphasis are topics such as spoken dialogue system design, in-vehicle communication system design and speech technology in military applications. Also included are tools on how to analyze the design, different design theories and process, methods about how to understand users. The material systematically describes the user-center design process and usability evaluation methods. Designing Human Interface in Speech Technology is appropriate for designers, engineers, and decision makers working in the area of speech technology research. It is also a good text book for senior university students and postgraduate students in the respective interaction design areas.
