    Describes work carried out as part of a five year research project to investigate the design, implementation and evaluation of dialogues for automated telephone services. The project involves a series of large-scale field experiments using a new Wizard of Oz (WOZ) scheme for the investigation of users' attitudes towards simulated automated telephone services and the evaluation of the perceived usa...

    Artificial neural networks (NNs) are a popular approach in the area of speech recognition, but several problems still exist to fulfil the proposed tasks, such as type of architecture, number of layers and cells, and how to deal with training processing time. The paper describes the results obtained from an experimental speech recognition system designed to compare several NN architectures in the s... View full abstract»

    Some of the existing theories which form the basis for a viable account of automatic speech recognition (ASR) use are discussed. A number of factors which fall under the general umbrella of user problems are considered in terms of vocabulary/dialogue design, task performance and extraneous factors. The models of ASR use are discussed with reference to psycholinguistics, multiple resources, working... View full abstract»

  • A fast search algorithm for speech vector quantisation

    The authors consider the problem of fast search algorithms used in vector quantisation. Some currently used fast search methods are described and a new implementation based on the coupling of some of these algorithms is proposed and shown to provide better performance than the constituent algorithms on their own. The new algorithm can also be useful in the codebook design stage View full abstract»

  • Applications of very-low-cost small vocabulary connected word recognition

    Publication Year: 1992, Page(s):3/1 - 3/4

    Although electronic components for computer-like operations are becoming cheaper, it is still possible to make the final product cost and power requirements much lower by using less computationally-intensive processing. In fact, if the processing is made simple enough there is scope for it all to be combined into a single application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC), and extremely low unit manuf...
