Abstract:

This thesis examined whether American English speech recognition technology can be used by Chinese speakers, in their native tongue, to achieve a reasonable degree of recognition accuracy. Three experiments were completed. The first showed that 88.25 of 4305 trials of Chinese phoneme recognition was correctly recognized. The second showed that 74.67 of 900 trials of simulated speaker independent model Chinese phoneme recognition was correctly recognized. The third showed that 12.44 of 900 trials of speaker dependent mode Chinese utterance recognition was incorrectly recognized on the first attempt. Only 16 utterances required a retraining to eventually obtain a correct recognition. Keywords Chinese language speech recognition Voice recognition Chinese phonetic system. Theses
