Fast transcription of speech in low-resource languages

16 Sep 2019Mark Hasegawa-JohnsonCamille GoudeseuneGina-Anne Levow

We present software that, in only a few hours, transcribes forty hours of recorded speech in a surprise language, using only a few tens of megabytes of noisy text in that language, and a zero-resource grapheme to phoneme (G2P) table. A pretrained acoustic model maps acoustic features to phonemes; a reversed G2P maps these to graphemes; then a language model maps these to a most-likely grapheme sequence, i.e., a transcription...
