A template-based isolated word recognition system, with adaptation of templates by weighted averaging with recognised input utterances, is described. Experiments with adaptation of speaker-specific and speaker-independent templates are reported. The results show substantial improvements in the recognition accuracies attained. Aspects of interaction between the system and the user are discussed.
