ROVER [1] and its successor voting procedures have been shown to be quite effective in reducing the recognition word error rate (WER). The success of these methods has been attributed to their minimum Bayes-risk (MBR) nature: they produce the hypothesis with the least expected word error. In this paper we develop a general procedure within the MBR framework… CONTINUE READING
