This book is based on the author's Ph.D. thesis which was selected during the 1994 ACM Doctoral Dissertation Competition as one of the two co-winning works. T.V. Raman did his Ph.D. work at Cornell University with Professor Davied Gries as thesis advisor.
The author presents the computing system ASTER that audio formats electronic documents to produce audio documents. ASTER can speak both literary texts and highly technical documents containing complex mathematics (presented in (LA)TEX).
