Many speech user interfaces can be improved by incrementally displaying or interpreting a speech recognizer’s current best path as a user speaks. This gives rise to a problem of instability, whereby the best path may change frequently, particularly with respect to the words most recently spoken. Introducing a lag between the audio most recently processed and the portion of the best path shown to the user can lead to more usable incremental results. In the ideal case, the lag introduced would… CONTINUE READING
