Presenting complex information in an understandable manner using speech is a challenging task to do well. Significant limitations, both in the generation process and from the human listeners’ capabilities, typically make for poorly understood speech. This work examines possible strategies for producing understandable spoken complex information working within those limitations, as well as identifying ways to improve systems to reduce the limitations’ impact. We discuss a simple user study that explores these strategies with complex structured information, and describe a spoken dialog system that will make use of this work to provide a speech interface to structured information in a more understandable manner.
