Abstract : This paper investigates class-based speech recognition, and more precisely the impact of the selection of the training samples for each class on the final speech recognition performance. Increasing the number of recognition classes should lead to more specific models, and thus to better recognition performance, providing the trained model parameters are reliable. However, when the number of classes increases, the amount of training data for each class gets smaller, and may lead to unreliable parameters. The experiments described in the paper show that taking into account a classification margin tolerance helps associating more training data to each class, and improves the overall speech recognition performance.
