Section 1 reviews the atmospheric turbulence deblurring problem. Based on this review, a research plan is being developed for research in the area. Section 2 reports on a mathematical technique for modeling the zeros in synthetic speech. This work is continuing so these preliminary technical results are not yet conclusive. Section 3 abstracts the finished work on Short Time Spectrum Acoustic Processing. Section 4 abstracts work on two estimation parameters for audio signals. Section 5 abstracts a method for recognizing words in continuous speech. Section 6 discuses a noise filtering method for speech signals. Section 7 briefly describes an attempt at linear predictive coding using a glottal waveform model. This approach did not improve speech quality sufficiently for reasonable bit rates. Section 8 reports an attempt to use more waveform phase information in a speech synthesis method.
