  • Patent number: 9747892
    Abstract: Speech is modeled as a cognitively-driven sensory-motor activity where the form of speech is the result of categorization processes that any given subject recreates by focusing on creating sound patterns that are represented by syllables. These syllables are then combined in characteristic patterns to form words, which are in turn, combined in characteristic patterns to form utterances. A speech recognition process first identifies syllables in an electronic waveform representing ongoing speech. The pattern of syllables is then deconstructed into a standard form that is used to identify words. The words are then concatenated to identify an utterance. Similarly, a speech synthesis process converts written words into patterns of syllables. The pattern of syllables is then processed to produce the characteristic rhythmic sound of naturally spoken words. The words are then assembled into an utterance which is also processed to produce a natural sounding speech.

  • Patent number: 6530739
    Abstract: An improved mounting system for mounting a forklift on a carrier vehicle where the forklift includes a frame, a mast connected to the frame, and a fork carriage having a pair of forks extending therefrom. The fork carriage is adapted to be vertically displaceable on the mast and laterally extendable relative to the mast. The carrier vehicle includes a mounting end with at least one fork receiver adapted to receive the pair of forks therein and to allow complete lifting of the forklift off of a ground surface by vertically displacing the fork carriage. At least one hook is attached to either the mast of the forklift or the mounting end of the carrier vehicle, and an engagement bar is secured to the other of the mast or the mounting end. The engagement bar is sized to be received within the at least one hook to thereby securely mount the forklift to the mounting end of the carrier vehicle. In one embodiment the at least one hook is two hooks rigidly attached to base portions of the mast.
