Abstract

Feature gaussianization in speech recognition

Annotation

In Hidden Markov models, speech data are modeled by Gaussian distributions. In this paper, we propose to Gaussianize the features to better fit to this modeling. A distribution of the data is estimated and a transform function is derived. We test three methods of the transform estimation (global, speaker based, frame based) and report results on the SPINE 2000 task with SPhinx recognizer. We conclude that the proposed method is a cheap way to increase the recognition accuracy.
