Porting Decipher from English to Mandarin

  title={Porting Decipher from English to Mandarin},
  author={M.-Y. Hwang and Xin Lei and Tim Ng and Mari Ostendorf},
This paper describes our efforts in porting the SRI Decipher English system into Mandarin for transcribing telephone conversations. This includes all aspects of the system: the pronunciation phone set and lexicon, word segmentation, pitch features, discriminatively trained acoustic models with parameter sharing determined by decision trees, and web-data augmented language models.
