Broadcast news (BN) transcription has been a challenging research area for many years. In the last couple of years, the availability of large amounts of roughly transcribed acoustic training data and advanced model training techniques has offered the opportunity to greatly reduce the error rate on this task. This paper describes the design and performance of BN transcription systems which make use of these developments. First, the effects of using lightly supervised training data and advanced… CONTINUE READING
