Multimodality in Language and Speech Systems edited by Bjorn Granstrom,
Dept. of Speech, Music and Hearing, KTH Royal Institute of Technology,

TEXT, SPEECH AND LANGUAGE TECHNOLOGY Volume: 19

This book covers the topic of multimodality from a large number of
different perspectives and provides the advanced student/researcher
with a current survey of theories of multimodal communication between
people as well as reviewing many aspects of multimodal input/output in
technical systems. Chapters dealing with human-human multimodal
communication include speech-gesture systems, semiotics of gesture,
structure and functions of face-to-face communication, emotional
relations and intercultural variation, and human-human communication
which is mediated by computer for the handicapped. Chapters dealing
with human-machine communication and interfaces cover the technology
and science of creating talking faces, technology and methods for the
development of animated interface agents in intelligent multimedia
systems, and the integration of multimodal input and output in the
computer interface.  The book also covers computer processing and
understanding of signal and symbol input from speech, text, and visual
images.
