T. V. Raman, Curriculum Vitae
I am an accomplished Computer Scientist with over 8 years
of industry experience in advanced technology development. During
this time, I have authored 2 books and filed over
20 patents; my work on auditory interfaces was profiled in the
September 1996 issue of Scientific American. I have leading
edge expertise in auditory interfaces, scripting languages,
Internet technologies including Web server applications and Web
standards. I participate in numerous W3C working groups and
authored Aural CSS (ACSS); in 1996 I wrote the first ACSS
implementation. I have been actively participating in defining XML
specifications for the next generation WWW including XForms, XML
Events, and XHTML+Voice.
Develop technologies that drive the future of the Web toward
eyes-free, ubiquitous information access. Speech is the next
natural dimension in user interfaces, and I am developing products
that combine speech technologies with the power of the Web to
deliver innovative multimodal applications that are available

My favorite hobby is recreational
mathematics. I enjoy working on puzzles, especially those that
involve an intuitive feel for mathematics. One of the things I
enjoyed doing the most in the early eighties was to solve the
Rubik's cube faster than anyone else around me, on an
average of about thirty seconds! I am also interested in
linguistics and can speak about eight languages, including
French, German and several Indian languages.
