Useful Speech Coding Links
There are quite a few sites on the WWW now that contain useful information
related to speech coding. Starting locally within my own group there are
online versions of many of our papers here
, including several papers on speech and audio coding. These papers
come from both our Departmental Research Journal, as well as various IEE
and IEEE journals and conference proceedings.
We gratefully acknowledge the IEE and the IEEE for the right to reproduce
this work via the WWW.
As for remote sites, I think all of those below are well worth a place
on your list of bookmarks if you're interested in speech coding
- The Comp.Speech
FAQ Web Page . Frequently Asked Questions (with answers) about speech
coding and other speech related technology such as speech recongnition.
Robinson's Speech Analysis Course . A complete course on speech analysis,
including some stuff on speech coding. Tony Robinson also deserves our
thanks for his comp.speech FTP
site which I give links to several times in this document. It contains
all sorts of useful speech coding and analysis software.
Voice Demo . Phil Karn has writen a page that compares the quality
of speech produced from lots of different speech codecs with analogue speech
corrupted by noise. Sometimes, from this side of the Atlantic, this link
is a little slow so you might want to try the local mirror of Phil's stuff
- Introduction to
DSP Course . This on-line course, from Bores Signal
Processing, gives a good introduction to signal processing ideas, such
as sampling, correlation ,convolution, Fourier Transforms and digital filters.
It also includes a review of DSP processors and how to program them.
