A speaker-independent system for recognizing sentence speech is proposed based on sentence spotting algorithm. The system consists of 1) the Partial Matching Method (PMM : this was already proposed by one of us) for spotting demiphonemes, and 2) the Vector Continuous Dynamic Programming (VCDP) for spotting sentences. The algorithm for sentence spotting is completely synchronized with frame of speech analysis.
