A speaker adaptable connected word recognizer has been implemented on the basis of a preamble not containing the vocabulary words. The preamble is used to select three cloests speakers from the connected speech space of twenty speakers. This acts as a short time adaptation procedure. A long time adaptation procedure is devised where new templates are added from a hard set of connected digits when these digits cause errors. The number of new templates that are needed vary from 2-3 for good speakers to 8-10 for poorer speakers. At the end of this procedure the new speaker often performs equal to 1-3 below his single speaker connected speech performance. Author
