Linear transforms have been used extensively for training and adaptation of HMM-based ASR systems. Recently procedures have been developed for the estimation of linear transforms under the Maximum Mutual Information (MMI) criterion. In this paper we introduce discriminative training procedures that employ linear transforms for feature normalization and for speaker adaptive training. We integrate these discriminative linear transforms into MMI estimation of HMM parameters for improvement of large vocabulary conversational speech recognition systems.
