2003 (English)In: Proceedings of the 15th International Congress of Phonetic Sciences (ICPhS), Barcelona Spain, 2003, 1149-1152 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In an attempt to improve automatic speech recognition(ASR) models for Swedish, accent variations wereconsidered. These have proved to be important variablesin the statistical distribution of the acoustic featuresusually employed in ASR. The analysis of featurevariability have revealed phenomena that are consistentwith what is known from phonetic investigations,suggesting that a consistent part of the informationabout accents could be derived form those features. Agraphical interface has been developed to simplify thevisualization of the geographical distributions of thesephenomena.
