Abstract
The interaction of linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and a modeling approach using continuous Laplacian mixture density HMM is studied experimentally. The largest improvements in speech recognition could be obtained when the classes for the LDA transform were defined to be sub-phone units. On a 12000 word German recognition task with small overlap between training and test vocabulary a reduction in error rate by one-fifth was achieved compared to the case without LDA. On the development set of the DARPA RM1 task the error rate was reduced by one-third. For the DARPA speaker-dependent no-grammar case, the error rate averaged over 12 speakers was 9.9%. This was achieved with a recognizer using LDA and a set of only 47 Viterbi-trained context-independent phonemes.
