The application of Bayesian fusion of confidence measures to speech recognition is proposed. Feature level, decision level, and hybrid fusion are considered under the Bayesian framework. The use of speaker-adapted feature-level Bayesian fusion reduced the error rate by 19.4% as compared to the conventional single feature-based confidence scoring in an isolated word out-of-vocabulary rejection test. The decision-level Bayesian fusion also showed better performance than the majority rule. Finally, hybrid Bayesian fusion, which can combine both confidence measure features and local decisions, achieved the best performance.
