Abstract : Combining words and syllables for speech transcription This paper analyzes the use of hybrid language models for automatic speech transcription. The goal is to later use such an approach as a support for helping communication with deaf people, and to run it on an embedded decoder on a portable device, which introduces constraints on the model size. The main linguistic units considered for this task are the words and the syllables. Various lexicon sizes are studied by setting thresholds on the word occurrence frequencies in the training data, the less frequent words being therefore syllabified. Using this kind of language model, the recognizer can output between 69% and 96% of the words (whereas the other words, will be represented by syllables). By setting different thresholds on the confidence measures associated to the recognized words, the most reliable word hypotheses can be identified, and they have correct recognition rates between 70% and 92%.
