The paper presents the creation of n-gram Language Models (LMs) for the purposes of spontaneous speech recognition with the special focus on the recognition performed with the data from the Nijmegen Corpus of Casual Czech (NCCCz). Required LMs which cover spontaneous or casual speech respectively were created using the data available in the collected corpus(More)
The automatic recognition of MP3 compressed speech presents a challenge to the current systems due to the lossy nature of compression which causes irreversible degradation of the speech wave. This article evaluates the performance of a recognition system optimized for MP3 compressed speech with current state-of-the-art acoustic modelling techniques and one(More)
This paper describes the pilot study of phonetic segmentation applied to Nijmegen Corpus of Casual Czech (NCCCz). This corpus contains informal speech of strong spontaneous nature which influences the character of produced speech at various levels. This work is the part of wider research related to the analysis of pronunciation reduction in such informal(More)
The paper analyses suitable features for distorted speech recognition. The aim is to explore the application of command ASR system when the speech is recorded with far-distance microphones with a possible strong additive and convolutory noise. The paper analyses feasible contribution of basic spectral subtraction coupled with cepstral mean normalization in(More)
The performance of speech recognition systems can be significantly degraded if the speech spectrum is distorted. This includes situations such as the usage of an improper recording device, enhancement technique or speech coder. This paper presents a front-end compensation method called spectrally selective dithering aimed at reconstructing the spectral(More)
