Standard automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems rely on transcribed speech, language models, and pronunciation dictionaries to achieve state-of-the-art performance. The unavailability of these resources constrains the ASR technology to be available for many languages. In this paper, we propose a novel zero-resourced ASR approach to train acoustic models that only uses list of probable words from the language of interest. The proposed approach is based on Kullback-Leibler divergence based… CONTINUE READING
