Application Of Smooth Ergodic Hidden Markov Model In Text To Speech Systems

Armin Ghayoori, Faramarz Hendessi, Asrar Sheikh
2008 Zenodo  
The proposed method is a probabilistic model and is based on Smooth Ergodic Hidden Markov Model. This model can be considered as an extension to HMM.  ...  In developing a text-to-speech system, it is well known that the accuracy of information extracted from a text is crucial to produce high quality synthesized speech.  ...  it can be used to address the problem with the HMM.  ...

Modeling and training options for handwritten Arabic text recognition

Irfan Ahmad, Technische Universität Dortmund, Technische Universität Dortmund
This leads to a significantly compact text recognizer as compared to the HMM systems that use the standard contextual models.  ...  for Arabic text.  ...  This, in turn, is used to retrain a new HMM system which is finally used for text recognition.Finally, the third approach is to use neural networks with HMMs in a hybrid way where the state output probability  ...

Unconstrained recognition of offline Arabic handwriting using generative and discriminative classification models [article]

Moftah M. Elzobi, Universitäts- Und Landesbibliothek Sachsen-Anhalt, Martin-Luther Universität, Ayoub Al-Hamadi, Abbas Omar
The developed system is used to create more than 12000 synthesized samples that have been added to the database.  ...  A letter frequency has analysis showed that the database iii iv exhibits letter frequencies very similar to that of large corpora of digital text, which proves the database usefulness.  ...  The best recognition rate achieved is 90%, when a combination of neural networks is chosen.  ...

Multi-Script Off-Line Signature Verification

Pal Srikanta, University, My, Michael Blumenstein
A multi-lingual country like India has many different scripts that are used for writing as well as for signing purposes based on different locations or regions.  ...  In India, a single official transaction sometimes needs signatures using more than one script.  ...  A technique for the automatic recognition of Arabic printed text using artificial neural networks was presented by Sarfraz et al. [300] .  ...
