Investigates the fusion of different information sources, with the goal of improving performance on spoken document retrieval (SDR) tasks. In particular, we explore the use of multiple transcriptions from different automatic speech recognizers, the combination of different types of subword unit indexing terms, and the combination of word- and subword-based units. To perform the retrieval, we use a novel probabilistic information retrieval model which retrieves documents based on maximum likelihood ratio scores. Experiments on the 1998 TREC-7 SDR task show that the use of these different information fusion approaches can result in significantly improved retrieval performance
