This paper explores the problem of identifying sen- tence boundaries in the transcriptions produced by automatic speech recognition systems. An experi- ment which determines the level of human perform- ance for this task is described as well as a memory- based computational approach to the problem. 1 The Problem This paper addresses the problem of identifying sen- tence boundaries in the transcriptions produced by automatic speech recognition (ASR) systems. This is unusual in the field of text processing which has generally dealt with well-punctuated text: some of the most commonly used texts in NLP are machine readable versions of highly edited documents such as newspaper articles or novels.
