Generating time-constrained audio presentations of structured information

Brian Langner, Rohit Kumar, Arthur Chan, Lingyun Gu, Alan W. Black

Presenting complex information in an understandable manner using speech is a challenging task to do well. Significant limitations, both in the generation process and from the human listenersÂ’ capabilities, typically make for poorly understood speech. This work examines possible strategies for producing understandable spoken complex information working within those limitations, as well as identifying ways to improve systems to reduce the limitationsÂ’ impact. We discuss a simple user study that explores these strategies with complex structured information, and describe a spoken dialog system that will make use of this work to provide a speech interface to structured information in a more understandable manner.
