In science:

The task we address in this paper consists of generating phonemic representations reflecting the Flemish and Dutch pronunciations of a word on the basis of its orthographic representation (which in turn is based on the actual speech recordings).
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
As available speech recognition technology is not yet up to generating this annotation automatically, it has to be produced from the (manually transcribed) orthographic transcription.
Meta-Learning for Phonemic Annotation of Corpora
In this section we reported research on the generation of a maximally accurate phonemic representation for both Dutch and Flemish reflecting the pronunciation of a given word on the basis of its orthographic representation.

Special cases are weak perspective cameras and more specially orthographic affine cameras, where the image is the orthogonal pro jection of space onto the retinal plane. A weak perspective camera is an orthogonal pro jection onto a plane combined with an additional scaling in that plane.
A structure from motion inequality
