Editorial Reviews


"Even after more than 30 years the 1978 textbook by Rabiner and Schafer still remains as one of the most comprehensive for teaching a one-semester graduate-level speech processing course. The new book manages to top that and is definitely representing an improvement over the old one. It doubles the content of the must-have classic, adds many new technology developments in recent years, and expands the application areas which have seen a tremendous growth in the last two decades. The inclusion of additional problems and MATLAB exercises along with real-world speech samples also facilitates convenient stepping stone for designing in-depth class projects. The intended course [Website] will contain demos, illustrations, and speech examples. Such a set of extra information is ideal for demonstrating key processing concepts. It will add good values to the already-appealing textbook." — Chin Hui-Lee, Georgia Institute of Technology

"The book is a thorough and detailed treatment of all aspects of digital speech processing from the fundamentals through a wide variety of applications. The authors are arguably the most influential researchers and expositors in the field, having been pioneers in its early development and remained active through their long and productive careers. The table of contents includes all of the major threads of the field, from the most basic elements through the most recent improvements." — Robert M. Gray, Stanford University

"The authors use a very clear writing style. They express the complex ideas in well organized, appropriate and unambiguous manner that is important to students." — Veton Këpuska, Florida Institute of Technology

"The inclusion of a large set of 217 problems is probably the most extensive. In addition the MATLAB exercises also make it easy for teaching and learning the practical aspects of speech processing." — Chin Hui-Lee, Georgia Institute of Technology

From the Back Cover

Clear, up-to-date, and hands-on coverage of digital speech processing.This new textpresents the basic concepts and theories of speech processing with clarity and currency, while providing hands-on computer-based laboratory experiences for students. The material is organized in a manner that builds a strong foundation of basics first, and then concentrates on a range of signal processing methods for representing and processing the speech signal.  Every chapter provides insights into the theory, concepts, and implementations of a range of short-time signal processing methods, and their utilization in realizing speech algorithms and speech applications.  Suitable for practicing engineers in speech processing.

I felt like this book has been pretty useful for my speech processing course. I think that its a little bland though, meaning its hard to read without falling asleep. I would like more useful worked out examples in the book (They seem to be nonexistent).
