Large-vocabulary speech recognition: A system for the Italian language

by P. D'Orta, M. Ferretti, A. Martelli, S. Melecrinis, S. Scarci, G. Volpi
We describe a research project in automatic speech recognition which has led to the development of an experimental large-vocabulary real-time recognizer for Italian, and show how the maximum-likelihood techniques which had been employed in the development of prototype recognizers for English can be tailored to a language with substantially different characteristics.
