Facilities and infrastracture
The equipment of the laboratories
includes 5 Sun Workstations, 5 Intel Pentium Pro based Intergraph Workstations
running Solaris, all operating on the same local network. There are also many
Intel's Pentium based PCs running Windows 98, 2000 and Windows NT4 which interoperate
with the main LAN. In addition, many modern software packages have been installed
in most of the workstations and PCs such as Comnet for network design and simulation
and NUANCE speech recognition toolkit for speech recognition applications. Finaly,
the laboratories are equiped with high-quality preamplifier, microphone and
headphones all used for speech recordings and on-line speech recognition.
