Abstract : In this paper, we propose a new speech model which is a Bayesian network (BN) built in the time-frequency domain. Contrarily to HMMs, this BN provides a good modeling of the frequency dynamics, particularly the asynchrony between sub-bands. The experiments we carried out show that, consequently, speech is modeled with higher fidelity. Moreover, our new model allows to perform multi-band speech recognition without {\it all} the drawbacks of the usual multi-band approach where each sub-band is independently modeled by a HMM. This makes our model very suited to the case where speech is corrupted by a band-limited noise. We present experiments on an isolated digit recognition task, in clean and noisy conditions. The results we obtain show that the BNs framework is very promising in the field of speech modeling and recognition.
