ECE 477: Digital Process Speech Signals
Prerequisite: ECE 384 and ECE 475
General Education requirement: Natural Science Technology
Applications of digital signal processing to speech signals. Course goals are to reinforce concepts learned in prerequisite courses, to introduce new tools needed to deal with time-varying signals and to have students apply what they have learned to their own voices. A semester design project is a large component of this course. Topics include a brief introduction to articulatory and acoustic phonetics, hearing and speech perception, time-domain methods for speech processing, short-time Fourier analysis, homomorphic speech processing, linear predictive coding of speech, and applications.
