Automatic speech transcripts can be made more readable and useful for further processing by enriching them with punctuation marks and other meta-linguistic information. We study in this work how to improve automatic recovery of one of the most difficult punctuation marks, commas, in French and in Czech. We show that commas detection performances are largely(More)
Automatic speech recognition (ASR) has reached very high levels of performance in controlled situations. However, the performance degrades significantly when environmental noise occurs during the recognition process. Nowadays, the major challenge is to reach a good robustness to adverse conditions, so that automatic speech recognizers can be used in real(More)
This paper deals with automatic dialog acts (DAs) recognition in Czech. Our work focuses on two applications: a multimodal reservation system and an animated talking head for hearing-impaired people. In that context, we consider the following DAs: statements, orders, investigation questions and other questions. The main goal of this paper is to propose,(More)
In this paper, we describe a continuous speech recognition system that uses the multi-band paradigm. This principle is based on the recombination of several independent sub-recognizers, each one assigned to a specific frequency band. The major issue of such systems consists of deciding at which time the recombination must be done. Our algorithm lets each(More)
This paper deals with automatic dialog acts (DAs) recognition in Czech. The dialog acts are sentence-level labels that represent different states of a dialogue, depending on the application. Our work focuses on two applications: a multimodal reservation system and an animated talking head for hearing-impaired people. In that context , we consider the(More)
— This paper deals with automatic dialogue acts (DAs) recognition in Czech. Dialogue acts are sentence-level labels that represent different states of a dialogue, such as questions, hesitations, ... In our application, a multimodal reservation system, four dialogue acts are considered: statements , orders, yes/no questions and other questions. The main(More)
