Prerequisite: LGST 200. An introduction to the principles of writing clearly and effectively in the legal environment. The objective is to draft writings that synthesize law, analyze legal issues, and explain law and legal analysis to a nonlegal audience. Assignments include a legal synthesis memo, case law and statutory analysis memos, and a client letter. Students may receive credit for only one of the following courses: LGST 201 or PLGL 201.
In general. There are two main techniques; formant synthesis: and concatenative synthesis: There are still lots of interesting problems: Reading: All successful ASR systems are statistical, based on Hidden Markov Models (HMM): ASR is a very difficult problem: interesting research problems: Reading: Recognition/generation of gestures/facial expressions: Optical character recognition (OCR): For English and Swedish, words are often separated by whitespace; but there are still problems:

Abstract- Text-to-Speech synthesis (TTS) has changed dramatically in the past few years. Today, the systems are almost completely based on data-driven techniques, much more than on linguist rule development. Much of these advances on speech synthesis have been borrowed from the field of speech recognition. In this tutorial we cover some of the most important techniques currently used on the stateof-art corpus-based concatenative text-to-speech synthesis. Further, we discuss some perspectives of this emergent technology.
