This paper addresses the problem of speech recognition under accent variations in English language. It has been demonstrated in previous research efforts that the multi-transitional model architecture is one of the solutions for robust speech recognition. In this study, we describe an universal hybrid system that is trained with data from American, Australian, and British accented speech. Experimental results on connecteddigit recognition task show an average string error rate reduction of… CONTINUE READING
