  • M.S. - Pennsylvania State University, 1978

BIOGRAPHY AND RERC AFFILIATION

Dr. Bunnell's work is on speech analysis, speech processing, and speech synthesis to aid persons with speech and hearing-related disabilities. In the Speech Research Lab at duPont Hopsital for Children, basic research in areas like speech disorders, speech perception, acoustic phonetics, and speech processing remains an important component of the projects there. One of his projects, ModelTalker project, is directed toward the development of high quality text to speech synthesis using natural speech (primarily diphone) concatenation units. The STAR (Speech Training, Assessment, and Remediation) project aims to develop a video game like speech training system which uses speech recognition to assess the speech of young children and animated cartoon characters to provide feedback and keep children involved in the game. Much of this work is heavily application oriented and uses established speech processing methods in new applications.

Some of the projects that he and his colleagues of this lab are working on right now are:
