Transforming Spontaneous to Read Speech

Ellis, Daniel P. W.

Description of a project attempting to improve speech recognition by "normalizing" variability in speech due to different speaking styles. This work is based on the idea that informal speech shows less deep formant modulations than read speech, so if we modify the speech in something like the formant-frequency domain, perhaps we can make it easier for conventional recognizers to handle.
