Title Searching The Web By Voice
Venue International Conference on Computational Linguistics
Session project notes
Year 2002

Spoken queries are a natural medium for searching the Web in settings where typing on a keyboard is not practical. This paper describes a speech inter- face to the Google search engine. We present ex- periments with various statistical language models, concluding that a unigram model with collocations provides the best combination of broad coverage, predictive power, and real-time performance. We also report accuracy results of the prototype sys- tem.
