Humanistic approaches are based on the principles of humanism and are founded mostly on the work of Abraham Maslow and Carl Rogers. He learns individually and considers that learning is not just about the intelligence but also educating the “whole person”. The primary goal of this approach (Humanistic approach) is human well-being, human values, human potential and acknowledgment of human dignity.
Speech Processing is the application of Digital Signal Processing (DSP) techniques for processing and analysis of the signal. Digital Signal Processing treats a signal as a series of numbers. The numbers, however, can be treated in many ways, regardless of the content.
Application of speech processing :
- Speech Coding.
- Verification or identification.
- Speech enhancement.
- Speech synthesis.
Other Applications of speech processing:
- Human-computer interfaces. (e.g, the speech I/O, affective)
- Telecommunication (e.g, speech enhancement, translation)
- Assistive technologies (e.g, blindness/deafness, language learning)
- Audio signal processing.
- Audio compression.
PROCESS OF SPEECH PRODUCTION:
There are a few steps for the processing of speech using humanity approach.
- The utterance method styles once the speaker formulates the message in his/her mind to transmit to attender via speech. This corresponds to changing the message into a collection of sound sequences admire the sounds that frame the words denoting the length of the sound, pitch of the sound, the loudness of sound, etc.
- Once the language code has chosen the speaker should execute a series of neuromuscular commands to cause the vocal cords to vibrate. Once applicable and to form tract such as the correct sequence of speech sounds are made and spoken by the talker, thereby, manufacturing associate correct signals because of the final output.
- Then the speech signal has generated and propagated to the attendee the auditory perception method begins. The neural activity on the cranial nerve has reborn into language code at higher centers of process at intervals the brain and at last message, comprehensive will be achieved.
CLASSIFICATION OF SOUNDS:
The two broad classes of Speech sounds are:
Speech has produced when the vocal cords play an active role in the production of speech e.g: a,e
Speech has produced when vocal cords are inactive e.g: s,f
I have presented a brief discussion of the basic of speech-production/perception mechanism in human beings and illustrated how we can exploit the so-called acoustic-phonetic properties of speech to identify basic sounds.
