Abstract
This paper is on acoustic keyword spotting. It presents several steps that have to be done to obtain a usable acoustic keyword spotting system. The novelty of the system is in the calibration.
Annotation
The paper deals with the development of acoustic keyword spotter (KWS) meeting requirements of a real user from the security community. While the basic scheme of the KWS is relatively standard, it uses novel features derived by a hierarchy of neural networks, and score normalization trained to maximize a user-like evaluation metric. The results are reported on a selection of Czech conversational telephone speech (CTS), radio and read data.
