Reliable accent specific unit generation with dynamic Gaussian mixture selection for multi-accent speech recognition

Abstract

Multiple accents are often present in Mandarin speech, as most Chinese have learned Mandarin as a second language. We propose generating reliable accent specific unit together with dynamic Gaussian mixture selection for multi-accent speech recognition. Time alignment phoneme recognition is used to generate such unit and to model accent variations explicitly… (More)
