4. An automatic speech recognition system for Italian language has been developed at IBM Italy Scientific Center in Rome. It is able to recognize in real time natural language sentences, composed with words from a dictionary of 6500 items, dictated by a speaker with short pauses among them. The system is speaker dependent, before using it the speaker has to perform the training stage reading a predefined text 15-20 minutes long. It runs on an architecture composed by an IBM 3090 mainframe and a PC/AT based workstation with signal processing equipments. PROBABILISTIC APPROACH The problem of recognizing human voice is approached in a probabilistic manner. I_~t W = w 1, w 2..... w n be a sequence of n words, and let A be the acoustic information extracted from the speech signal, from which th...
