This paper describes the continuous speech recognition subsystem "ATREUS" which is used as the speech input stage in the experimental speech translation system "ASURA." The speech recognition algorithm is SSS-LR/VFS which consists of context-dependent phone models (HMnet), a generalized LR parser, and vector field smoothing for speaker / environment adaptation.
Keywords: continuous speech recognition, context-dependent phone models, LR parser, speaker adaptation, speech translation
