We propose a modified hidden Markov model (MHMM) that incorporates nonparametric state duration and state duration-dependent observation probabilities to reflect state transitions and to have accurate temporal structures in the HMM. In addition, to cope with the problem that results from the use of insufficient amount of training data, we propose to use the modified continuous density hidden Markov model (MCDHMM) with a different number of mixtures for the probabilities of state duration-independent and state duration-dependent observation. We show that this proposed method yields improvement in recognition accuracy in comparison with the conventional CDHMM
