Abstract

This paper summarizes the work of the “Rapid Speech Recognizer Adaptation” team in the workshop held at Johns Hopkins University in the summer of 1998. The project addressed the modeling of dependencies between units of speech with the goal of making more effective use of small amounts of data for speaker adaptation. A variety of methods were investigated and their effectiveness in a rapid adaptation task defined on the SWITCHBOARD conversational speech corpus is reported.
