Performance Improvements of Probabilistic Transcript-adapted ASR with Recurrent Neural Network and Language-specific Constraints

13 Dec 2016Xiang KongPreethi JyothiMark Hasegawa-Johnson

Mismatched transcriptions have been proposed as a mean to acquire probabilistic transcriptions from non-native speakers of a language.Prior work has demonstrated the value of these transcriptions by successfully adapting cross-lingual ASR systems for different tar-get languages. In this work, we describe two techniques to refine these probabilistic transcriptions: a noisy-channel model of non-native phone misperception is trained using a recurrent neural net-work, and decoded using minimally-resourced language-dependent pronunciation constraints...
