Abstract : This paper presents several new confidence measures for speech recognition applications. The major advantage of these measures is that they can be evaluated with only a part of the whole sentence. Two of these measures can be computed directly within the first step of the recognition process, synchronously with the decoding engine. Such measures are useful to drive the recognition process by modifying the likelihood score or to validate recognized words in on-the-fly applications as keyword spotting task and on-line automatic speech transcription for deaf people. Two kinds of results are given. Firstly, an EER evaluation on a French broadcast news corpus shows performance close to the batch version of these measures (23.9% against 23.8% of EER). Secondly, for the keyword spotting application, our best measure provides a decrease of the false-acceptation rate by 50% with only a decrease of the correct words by 5%.
