Enriching disordered speech

  • Position identifier: ESR2
  • Host partner: UPV/EHU

Objectives

The aim of this project is the study and design of data- or knowledge-driven voice/speech transformations to enable communication in the context of disordered speech. Thus, speech is to be enriched by boosting its intelligibility and pleasantness when possible.

The project will be carried out at the AHOLAB Signal Processing Laboratory in the Department of Communications Engineering at the University of the Basque Country campus in central Bilbao.

The project will be supervised by Prof. Inma Hernaez and Dr. Eva Navas, with additional supervision from Prof. Yannis Stylianou (University of Crete, Greece). The project will be carried out in collaboration with, and involve extended visits to, both the University of Edinburgh (UK) and Tobii Technology (Sweden).
