Abstract : Noise degrades the performance of Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems working in real condition. The mismatch between the training and recognition conditions is considered the main factor involved in this degradation, and most methods for robust ASR are focussed on its minimization. In this work, we compare robust methods for ASR based on (a) the compensation of the noise effects and (b) the adaptation of the acoustic models to noise con-ditions. We propose a method for the adaptation of the acoustic models to the noise conditions based on a statistical formulation. In this method, each Gaussian is adapted to the noisy environment according to the estimated noise conditions. Recognition experiments have been carried out using speech acquired in real car environments. The results show the statistical formulation for adaptation provides an accurate method for robust ASR.
