The robustness of the ETSI (European Telecommunication Standards Institute) standardized feature extraction schemes is investigated for phoneme based recognition tasks of German speech data. The recognition tasks are an isolated command word recognition and the recognition of connected digits. The motivation of this work is the easy extensibility of a whole word recognition system by allowing also the recognition of phoneme based word HMMs (Hidden Markov Models). The recognition performance has
