On model architecture for a children's speech recognition interactive dialog system [article]

Radoslava Kraleva, Velin Kralev
2016 arXiv   pre-print
The result of these studies and presented veins architectural model shows that research needs to be focused on acoustic-phonetic modeling in order to improve the quality of children's speech recognition  ...  This report presents a general model of the architecture of information systems for the speech recognition of children. It presents a model of the speech data stream and how it works.  ...  Therefore, it may be argued that the creation of technology to be applied in children's speech recognition is an interesting and easy task. There are many studies on this matter.  ...

Voice Conversion Based Data Augmentation to Improve Children's Speech Recognition in Limited Data Scenario

S. Shahnawazuddin, Nagaraj Adiga, Kunal Kumar, Aayushi Poddar, Waquar Ahmad
2020 Interspeech 2020  
Automatic recognition of children's speech is a challenging research problem due to several reasons.  ...  For that purpose, generative adversarial network (GAN) based voice conversion (VC) is exploited to modify the acoustic attributes of adults' speech making it perceptually similar to that of children's  ...  However, in the context of children's speech, there is a paucity of publicly available database.  ...
