The combination of automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems generally relies on a posteriori merge of system outputs or on a cross-adaptation. In this paper, we propose an integrated approach where the search of a primary system is driven by the outputs of a secondary one. This method allows to drive the primary system search by using the one-best hypotheses and the word posteriors gathered from the secondary system. Experiments are carried out within the experimental framework of the ESTER… CONTINUE READING
