Abstract (en)

A digital speech system processes acquired speech to determine speech element information, such as the phonemes in the speech, and associated the prosody information. This determined information is then encoded for transmission and/or storage. The encoded information is decoded to recover the speech element information and the prosody information which can be provided to a speech generator to construct a facsimile of the original speech. Also, the speech element and prosody information can be searched to locate words or phrases of interest in the speech. <IMAGE>
