Recent years have seen the appearance of increasingly powerful text-to-speech and automatic speech recognition devices. However, the production of truly natural-sounding speech still poses considerable problems, and the reliable recognition of continuous speech is still open to major improvements. This text captures the essential elements of current research which have a bearing on future developments, exploiting and simulating complex knowledge about how human speakers and listeners process speech and language.
