Improvement of a speech recognizer for standardized medical assessment of children's speech by integration of prior knowledge

Tobias Bocklet, Andreas Maier, Ulrich Eysholdt, Elmar Noth
2010 2010 IEEE Spoken Language Technology Workshop  
In this work we improved our automatic speech recognition system by integrating prior knowledge.  ...  Speech recognition of children is a more difficult task than speech recognition of adults. This problem is amplified for children with articulation disorders like cleft lip and palate (CLP).  ...  SUMMARY We have shown, that an integration of prior knowledge into a speech recognizer leads to huge recognition improvements.  ...
