Combinaison de systèmes pour la phonétisation automatique de noms propres

Abstract : Large vocabulary automatic speech recognition (ASR) technologies perform well in known, controlled contexts. However recognition of proper nouns is commonly considered as a difficult task. Accurate phonetic transcription of a proper noun is difficult to obtain, although it can be one of the most important resources for a recognition system. In this article, we propose methods of automatic phonetic transcription applied to proper nouns. The methods are based on combinations of the rule-based phonetic transcription generator LIA PHON and an acoustic-phonetic decoding system. On the ESTER corpus, we observed that the combined system obtained better results than our reference system (LIA PHON). The WER decreased on segments of speech containing proper nouns, without affecting negatively the results on the rest of the corpus.
