The Speech and Hearing Research Group (SpandH) was established in the
Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield, in 1986.
Since then, it has gained an international reputation for research in
the fields of speech technology and computational hearing. The group
is concerned both with the computational modelling of auditory and
speech perception in humans and machines, with the problem of
robustness in speech recognition and with the development of
leading-edge, large vocabulary speech recognition systems.

An aspect of the group which makes it unique in the United Kingdom is
the wide spectrum of research topics covered, from the psychology of
hearing through to the engineering of large vocabulary speech
recognition systems. It is our belief that studies at different points
in this spectrum can and should be mutually beneficial.

At the time of writing, SpandH comprises 4 academics, 4 research
assistants and 13 research students. It is currently funded by the EC
ESPRIT Long Term Research Programme, the EC TMR programme, the UK
EPSRC funding agency, The Hearing Trust, DERA, Motorola and Nokia.
SpandH coordinates three major EC collaborative projects.
