Scope of Scientific Activities

We are a special-interest group of about 950 scientists within the ASA concerned with the study of the production, transmission, and perception of spoken language, including the following:

  • The acoustic, physiological, psychological, and linguistic phenomena related to the human speech process
  • Speech-transmission systems
  • Machine processing of speech, including speech analysis, synthesis and automatic recognition
  • The measurement and assessment of speech as to its intelligibility and its quality.

Thus, we come from many different disciplines, including at least physics, speech and hearing science, experimental psychology, linguistics, electrical engineering, etc.

Please read the new proposed “Scope of Scientific Activities” of the SCTC and send any comments to sctc-scope@geoff-morrison.net (Subcommittee: Geoff Morrison, Tessa Bent, Brad Story, and Ben Munson).
