Introduction and Overview of the Vicens-Reddy Speech Recognition System.
Kameny, Iris; Ritea, H.
The Vicens-Reddy System is unique in the sense that it approaches the problem of speech recognition as a whole, rather than treating particular aspects of the problems as in previous attempts. For example, where earlier systems treated only segmentation of speech into phoneme groups, or detected phonemes in a given context, the Vicens-Reddy System processes the incoming speech signal, applies heuristics to segment the signal and to identify phoneme-like units and then uses the total phonemic pattern to recognize an entry in the lexicon. The Vicens-Reddy System is divided into six parts: (1) hardware preprocessing, (2) software preprocessing, (3) segmentation, (4) recognition, (5) lexicon development, and (6) lexicon usage.
