This paper describes a method for selecting text data from a corpus with the aim of training auxiliary Language Models (LMs) for an Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) system. A novel similarity score function is proposed, which allows to score each document belonging to the corpus in order to select those with the highest scores for training auxiliary LMs which are linearly interpolated with the baseline one. The similarity score function makes use of "similarity models" built from the automatic transcriptions furnished by earlier stages of the ASR system, while the documents selected for training auxiliary LMs are drawn from the same set of data used to train the baseline LM used in the ASR system. In this way, the resulting interpolated LMs are "focused" towards the output of the recognizer itself.

Abstract

This paper describes a method for selecting text data from a corpus with the aim of training auxiliary Language Models (LMs) for an Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) system. A novel similarity score function is proposed, which allows to score each document belonging to the corpus in order to select those with the highest scores for training auxiliary LMs which are linearly interpolated with the baseline one. The similarity score function makes use of "similarity models" built from the automatic transcriptions furnished by earlier stages of the ASR system, while the documents selected for training auxiliary LMs are drawn from the same set of data used to train the baseline LM used in the ASR system. In this way, the resulting interpolated LMs are "focused" towards the output of the recognizer itself.
