MUNST Multilingual Natural Speech Technology ITC-irst


This research  line aims at  advancing and developing  spoken language processing  technology  in two  major  research  areas:  audio  digital libraries and  speech translation.

Research is focused on  fundamental   issues  as  speech   recognition  for  unconstrained language,   ``atypical''  speakers,   e.g.  children,   audio  content indexing,  cross-language spoken  document retrieval,  and statistical speech translation.

Research is mostly  carried out within national   and  international  projects   and  in   co-operation  with
world-class  laboratories.  Progress is  systematically measured  through widely  accepted benchmarks  and by  taking  part to international evaluations.
