Storage Space Breakdown for the LocoMedia System - in progress!

Its a little too early to finalise the storage space budget, but here are some facts and assumptions that will effect the final numbers:

Speech Engine

How much space do we need for the HP speech engine's training data?

So total storage space required for speech engine and HMM data should be <400KB.

Speech Coder

The Speech coder effects how much space we need to store 300 messages / 1 hour of audio. For the mean time lets assume that we will be using a speech coder and see how they do with ambient sounds (pigeons cooing, brass band playing, traffic tooting, crowd noise, hot air balloon burners). We might consider using Roger Tucker's (HP) parasitic converter if need be to preserve high frequency quality.

Two speech coders are available:
