Abstract:
A computer system comprises an input configured to receive voice input from a user, the voice input having speech intervals separated by non-speech intervals; an ASR system configured to identify individual words in the voice input during speech intervals thereof, and store the identified words in memory; a response generation module configured to generate based on the words stored in the memory an audio response for outputting to the user; and a response delivery module configured to begin outputting the audio response to the user during a non-speech interval of the voice input, wherein the outputting of the audio response is terminated before it has completed in response to a subsequent speech interval of the voice input commencing whilst the audio response is still being outputted.
