PROGRESSES IN CONTINUOUS SPEECH RECOGNITION BASED ON STATISTICAL MODELLING FOR ROMANIAN LANGUAGE

Corneliu Octavian Dumitru, Inge Gavat, Diana Militaru

Abstract

In this paper we will present progresses made in Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) for Romanian language based on statistical modelling with hidden Markov models (HMMs). The progresses concern enhancement of modelling by taking into account the context in form of triphones, improvement of speaker independence by applying a gender specific training and enlargement of the feature categories used to describe speech sequences derived not only from perceptual cepstral analysis but also from perceptual linear prediction.
