The Only Book/Disk Package Available That Offers Hands-On Experience With Speech Coding! Speech Coding: A Computer Laboratory Textbook Thomas P. Barnwell, III, Georgia Institute of Technology Kambiz Nayebi, Sharif University Craig H. Richardson, Atlanta Signal Processors, Inc. This latest entry in the Georgia Tech Digital Signal Processing Laboratory Series- a laboratory series for DSP which operates on PCs- offers you a hands-on experience with speech processing, in particular speech coding. Born out of the need for laboratory materials for the Digital Signal Processing program at Georgia Tech, this book/disk package covers all the basic approaches found in modern speech coders. A DOS-based PC with a floating point processor and the software that accompanies this book are all you need to develop a practical, intuitive sense of how modern speech coders work, and receive a truly deep understanding of the principles of speech coding. You'll find complete coverage of the state-of-the-field, including pulse code modulators... adaptive pulse code modulators... adaptive differential pulse code modulation ... adaptive predictive coders... linear predictive coders... code excited linear predictive coders... multi-pulse excited linear predictive coders... subband coders... transform coders, and much more. Speech Coding: A Computer Laboratory Textbook:Puts a wealth of speech analysis tools at your fingertipsIs packed with exercises and projects for hands-on experimentation with algorithmsDescribes speech coding algorithms in both simple parametric terms and complete equation formIncludes a short, concise description of speech coders for easy referenceCan add a hands-on, practical dimension to any speech processing book you choosePlus, the DSP laboratory software that accompanies this book features a powerful graphical user interface that makes it easy to use. With pull-down menus, interactive graphics, extensive analysis programs, and help functions, anyone can use the software with little or no training.
