We examine alternative architectures for a client-server model of speech-enabled applications over the World Wide Web (WWW). We compare a server-only processing model where the client encodes and transmits the speech signal to the server, to a model where the recognition front end runs locally at the client and encodes and transmits the cepstral coefficients to the recognition server over the Internet. We follow a novel encoding paradigm, trying to maximize recognition performance instead of perceptual reproduction, and we find that by transmitting the cepstral coefficients we can achieve significantly higher recognition performance at a fraction of the bit rate required when encoding the speech signal directly. We find that the required bit rate to achieve the recognition performance of high-quality unquantized speech is just 2000 bits per second
