Time-first search for large vocabulary speech recognition

  title={Time-first search for large vocabulary speech recognition},
  author={Tony Robinson and James Christie},
This paper describes a new search technique for large vocabu lary speech recognition based on a stack decoder. Considerable m emory savings are achieved with the combination of a tree based lexicon and a new search technique. The search proceeds time-fir st, that is partial path hypotheses are extended into the future in the inner loop and a tree walk over the lexicon is performed as an outer loop. Partial word hypotheses are grouped based on lan guage model state. The stack maintains… CONTINUE READING
