HMM adaptation using a phase-sensitive acoustic distortion model for environment-robust speech recognition
In this paper, we present a new approach to HMM adaptation that jointly compensates for additive and convolutive acoustic distortion in environment-robust speech recognition. The hallmark of our new approach is the use of a nonlinear, phase-sensitive model of acoustic distortion that captures phase asynchrony between clean speech and the mixing noise. In the first step of the developed algorithm, both the static and dynamic portions of the noise and channel parameters are estimated in the cepstral domain, using the speech recognizer’s “feedback” information and the vector-Taylor-series linearization technique on the nonlinear phase-sensitive model. In the second step, the estimated noise and channel parameters are used to effectively adapt the static and dynamic portions of the HMM means and variances also using the linearized phase-sensitive acoustic distortion model. In the experimental evaluation using the standard Aurora 2 task, the proposed new algorithm achieves 93.3% accu...
