Speech-centric multimodal interfaces

J.L. Flanagan
2004 IEEE Signal Processing Magazine  
This report argues that an appropriate employment of advanced computing and networking is towards creating a communication environment for human users that is as natural and habitable as face-to-face information  ...  A large part of this advance is owing to the benefits of information technology -computing, networking, and software.  ...  As smallest units we have the alphabet for text, and phonemes for speech. Can we establish similar elements for gaze and gesture? And if so, how can we fuse multimodal information?  ...
