Courses

In this area, you will find the courses. Each course guides you through a carefully selected collection of video lecture clips, blog posts and discussion forums on this site, along with readings and external material. There are also practical exercises to help you understand the material.

Users with an account on the site have access to additional forums for the practical exercises, and the ability to post on the forums. Accounts are generally only offered to my own students at the University of Edinburgh.

  • Speech Processing

    Starting with an introduction that makes no assumptions about background knowledge, followed by text-to-speech synthesis, and automatic speech recognition.
